Resolution:

 

 

This warning can be resolved by modifying the communication between clusters to 'Authenticated and Encrypted' from boxmgmt, it’ll require downtime, as when changing it for the first cluster, the CGs will enter in error state, till also changing the security level for the other cluster and then CGs will return active back, below steps to perform this change:
