Cannot access newly created bucket (3.0.1)

After creating a bucket through the SDK I cannot access the bucket without calling Cluster.ConnectAsync again. IS this by design?

.NET SDK 3.0.1
Couchbase Server CE 6.5.1

@msb -

It could be that the bucket resource creation hasn’t yet completed on the server as the API simply returns immediately. If the bucket isn’t yet completed on the server, then it would fail. Calling Cluster.ConnectAsync probably adds enough latency so that this warm-up period is not noticed. Try adding a delay before opening the bucket to confirm, if you still cannot open the bucket, then we’ll open up a ticket for investigation.
