Cloudflare GEO Traffic Steering - Load balancing - Error 1000

Hey there!

I have a LB setup in Cloudflare

my services are hosted on render[dot]com → providing <app_name>[dot]onrender[dot]com.

I’ve deployed my app to 2 regions on render.com

1 in the US and 1 in the EU
creating 2 onrender[dot]com urls (api-eu[dot]onrender[dot]com, api-usa[dot]onrender[dot]com)

I’ve gone through the wizard to setup a LB using Geo Traffic Steering.

Setup the health checks and the regions. I’ve opted for now to put the closest pool in each region.

i.e
Western EU => eu api
Oceana => US

I’m getting this sad error " What happened?

You’ve requested a page on a website (api.my-app.com) that is on the Cloudflare network. Unfortunately, it is resolving to an IP address that is creating a conflict within Cloudflare’s system.

my A record is an IP address going to another onrender.com app which I’m not putting through a loadbalancer

excuse the blah[dot]com I was unable to post links in this forum due to filtering rules
