Hi all,

I'm trying to run the Chapter 4 LAB and after the Minikube Start I received the following error message:

E0918 18:45:37.595878   25867 start.go:143] Error starting host: Error creating host: Error executing step: Creating VM 

.

E0918: command not found

I'm using an Ubuntu Droplet in Digital Ocean. How do you recommend to solve this issue?

BR,

Robson

    VM instances in public cloud providers usually don't allow you to do nested virtualization.

    Since minikube installs kubernetes in a VM, you would end up with a VM in a VM.

    The recommendation for minikube is to use it on your local machine and use your local "hypervisor" i.e virtual box, Fusion, KVM...

    bottom line don't do minikube in a cloud instance.
