Lab 7.2 Traefik image tag 1.7 needs to be specified
I think version 2 made changes that break the way the lab is setup. Without specifying the tag, I get the following error
$ kubectl logs -n kube-system traefik-ingress-controller-ghn8w --follow 2019/10/04 01:24:38 command traefik error: failed to decode configuration from flags: field not found, node: kubernetes
The solution appears rather simple.
# . . . . . hostNetwork: True containers: - image: traefik:1.7 # Add the 1.7 tag here name: traefik-ingress-lb ports: # . . . . .
If you have a better solution feel free to share, but this one worked for me.
