Error Re inviting participants when second jitsivideobridge is down

I have installed the latest stable version of Jitsi Meet on an Ubuntu server - nginx, jicofo, prosody and videobridge following the quick installation guide - and a second instance of jitsi videobridge on a second server. Everything works fine but when one videobridge is powered off, conferences are not automatically passed to the other videobridge that is powered on, participants are not re-invited and this error message registers in jicofo.log:

Can you try with jicofo 902 or newer?

I have already installed the last Jicofo version [2.0.7439] → jicofo 1.0-900-1
(Release 2.0.7439 · jitsi/jicofo · GitHub)

How can get Jicofo 902 or newer?


First of al, Sorry for the delay.

I have just updated jicofo from 1.0-900-1 (last stable version) to [jicofo_1.0-909-1_all.deb] from and It works perfectly.
I just updated Jicofo to version x from version Y - the latest stable one - and it works perfectly. The behavior is as expected. I have been restarting the videobridges with active conferences and now it does create the rooms in the active videobridge, re-inviting the participants automatically.

We will wait for this version to go stable to update our Jitsi meet installation.

Thanks a lot.
