Welcome to the Linux Foundation Forum!

lab 3.1 Step 10

i downloaded calico.yaml. Is that the right IP
Do I need to uncomment the following lines in calico.yaml? Instructions are not clear

        # no effect. This should fall within `--cluster-cidr`.
        # - name: CALICO_IPV4POOL_CIDR
        #   value: "192.168.0.0/16"

    Hi @swamyb,

    You do not need to uncomment those lines. The IP subnet is correct, by default.

    Looks like I might missed some steps. Can you please let me why I am getting this error?

    Hi,

    Your errors may depend on several factors. Where are you provisioning your VMs - cloud, local? What hypervisor are you using if local, or what cloud provider? Which container runtime did you install: docker or cri-o, or both? Did the calico network plugin get installed and started? A history of your shell would provide some details as to what commands were run during the installation process.

    Regards,
    -Chris

    I am using Google cloud.

    I actually missed installing docker. Now i was able to run the command. But now I get two containers complaining

    Would you be able to provide more details around this error? Which containers are complaining?
    This output only indicates that you may have tried to list StatefulSets, and a possible DNS issue with your cluster. Are your /etc/hosts files configured correctly?

    Hi,

    In this situation, Kubernetes logs would be more helpful, since the containers listing above does not display any errors. Kubernetes logs would provide the context of the error, to help with troubleshooting.

    The output of kubectl get pods --all-namespaces -o wide, kubectl logs <pod-name> -c <container-name> and kubectl logs <pod-name> -c <container-name> --previous may give us the details we are looking for.

    Regards,
    -Chris

    output of kubectl get pods --all-namespaces -o wide. They are all up and running. Is this enough?

    thanks

    Hi @swamyb,

    Thank you for your output. It only indicates that 4 pods seem to have been running without restarts for 21 hours, but it does not show the logs.

    Regards,
    -Chris

    I tried to run the following to get pod info and don't know how to get container name.
    [email protected]:~# kubectl logs etcd-master
    Error from server (NotFound): pods "etcd-master" not found
    I assume etcd-master is pod name.

    Can you please show me how to get container name? What commands I should run to get container name.?

    Also if the output shows are pods are running, is that enough for me continue to next step?

    Hello,

    I notice you are running the command as the root user. If you are following the labs I think you would have given the appropriate config file to the non-root user, the book says student. But the issue is probably that you did not use the -n kube-system argument in your command, as was in the previous, so it is looking in the default namespace.

    Going slow and reading the entire question can be helpful, with a plan on returning and going faster later.

    Also, which particular command (exercise, section, step) were you attempting? This helps understand what you are trying to do.

    Regards,

    Thanks for your comments. I am stuck at LAB 3.1 step 14. I ran the command after following all the instructions. If you look at post 7, I have given the information of the errors I am getting. Also from step 1 to step 14, never seen I have to be non root. Can you please point where it is mentioned before step 14? I only see sudo -i command.

    This is what I was referring to:

    tried to run the following to get pod info and don't know how to get container name.
    [email protected]:~# kubectl logs etcd-master
    Error from server (NotFound): pods "etcd-master" not found
    I assume etcd-master is pod name.

    None of this ^^^ is in Lab 3.1, step 14.

    "Post 7" appears to be Chris replying to you. But they are not numbered so it would be difficult to know what you are talking about.

    Which course and version are you using?

    Hi,

    Did you get an error from step 14? Would you be able to provide the error as it was displayed on your terminal? Relying only on Docker errors retrieved thru a docker ps command may not necessarily translate into a problem with Kubernetes tooling.

    Regards,
    -Chris

    Is there way to contact one of you outside this forum? I might need to show you what I did.
