Unable to access 3.5.28 cluster with javascript 4.4.5 driver

Potential bug report

Code using JS driver 4.4.5 is unable to access a Neo4j Enterprise cluster using version 3.5.28.

**Neo4j Version:** 3.5.28 Enterprise
**Neo4j Mode**: Cluster (3 nodes)
**Driver version**: JS driver 4.4.5
**Operating System:** AWS instance operated by 3rd party, so unknown

Steps to reproduce

1. instantiate a driver using the `neo4j+s` scheme
2. create a session and a transaction
3. attempt to run a simple query within that transaction

Expected behavior

The query shall run successfully

Actual behaviour

1. Code instantiates a driver successfully using the `neo4j+s` url scheme
2. Code appears to create a session successfully
3. attempting to run a transaction results in a timeout with subsequent transaction retries

Error returned is:

It appears that the driver isn't retrieving the routing table properly? I'm wondering whether the Bolt handshaking isn't detecting that it should be using Bolt protocol v3?

For context, we are attempting to update our code to use the latest driver as a precursor to updating our DB cluster to Neo4j 4.4

Hoping someone might have encountered this before and found a solution?


It's not a bug, it's designed that way. Each driver can only connect to a subset of previous neo4j versions.

That should be listed in the driver docs

I think you need to go back to an 1.7 driver for neo4j 3.5.x
