If scaling up 3-5 machines the machines will transition to running, join the cluster.
If scaling up a large number of machines, 10-20+ some will transition to running and join the cluster.
The remaining will stay in provisioned/provisioning state and never power on
If those nodes are manually powered on they join the cluster and are healthy.
There are ~16k tags shared across multiple VMWare Cloud Foundation data centers.
In the logs it is observed the reconciliation of tags occur and then some of the nodes will power on and transition to running.
Do not see in the logs where the reconciliation of the tags on the remaining nodes runs again or completes.
