                                handshakeResponse = transportService.handshake(connection; connectionProfile.getHandshakeTimeout().millis();
                                    (c) -> remoteClusterName.get() == null ? true : c.equals(remoteClusterName.get()));
                            } catch (IllegalStateException ex) {
                                logger.warn(() -> new ParameterizedMessage("seed node {} cluster name mismatch expected " +
