Yes (though I think you mean -ivendog xstar-).

The C-stat works here by comparing two estimations, one with xstar
exogenous and one with it endogenous:
ivreg2 y xstar (=instrument1 instrument2) other variables
ivreg2 y (xstar=instrument1 instrument2) other variables
Something is going wrong with the latter estimation. Try estimating it
explicitly with the cluster option and see what the error message is.
Hope this helps.
