Hi,

I've been trying to add a worker node to the cluster. I've followed the doc but I'm hitting this issue and I can't find a way past it. I've obviously missed something. Here is the command and error:

  • Hi @dmccuk,

    Similar discussions have been posted recently in the forum, where a second node fails to join the cluster.
    From your output, the failure is a timeout when accessing port 6443 on the master node.
    Port 22 is irrelevant in this scenario since Kubernetes uses lots of different individual port numbers and port ranges - and 6443 is one of them.

    Read carefully the special instructions at the beginning of Lab exercise 3.1. These instructions are critical in setting up your infrastructure's networking (firewall rules) for inter-node communication.

    Regards,
    -Chris

    Hi Chris,

    Thanks for your message. I worked out what I hadn't done. I'll write it here so others can benefit:

    1) In AWS, create a new security group and open up all the ports.
    2) Select one of your Kubernetes instances --> actions --> networking
    3) Tick the new kubernetes group, adding it to your instance.
    4) Repeat for all the other kubernetes instances.
    5) Retry the failing command.

    I hope that helps.
