What happens if you restart the Confluence app on node 2? Occasionally, I've seen odd cases like this where the app starts up slowly and certain required components of the app timeout. This leads to a domino effect of other things not starting and odd errors.  If it is still behaving strangely after an app bounce, shut the app down and delete the Confluence application log and restart. This way you're starting with a clean log.  Post up the first few errors in the log and I think we should be able to help you sort this out.

Issue with both instances are not communicating each other due to network(telnet not happen). Now issue got resolved.

Thank you.

Please help this

when i login into the application with admin credentials , it is getting login and immediately getting logout.

No errors thrown in the atlassian-confluence.log. The following warning flashes quickly and user is redirected to the login page

Sounds like you have issues with your load balancer configuration. If I were a betting man, I would say your load balancer is probably not session sticky.
