Lab 3.2 - Step 11. cannot create token on worker

Hi. Have a problem when creating a token on worker (step 11 Lab 3.2 - Growing the Cluster).

root@ip-172-31-35-153:~# sudo kubeadm token list
failed to load admin kubeconfig: open /root/.kube/config: no such file or directory
To see the stack trace of this error execute with --v=5 or higher

    kubeadm token <list,create,...> commands are run on the cp. You can use these tokens in the kubeadm join command on the worker

    Hi Triaris, actually that's the error I have from cp node.

    ubuntu@ip-172-31-27-178:~$ kubeadm token list
    failed to list bootstrap tokens: Get "https://k8scp:6443/api/v1/namespaces/kube-system/secrets?fieldSelector=type=bootstrap.kubernetes.io/token": dial tcp 172.31.27.178:6443: connect: connection refused

    Hi @telcomx,

    When bootstrapping the cluster, did you follow the video from the introductory chapter, and are you running the recommended VM guest OS and version?

    Hi @chrispokorni
    Yes, I am using AWS with two EC2 instances, one as CP (t2.medium) and one WORKER (t2.micro).
    Did setup securoty groups as ALL open as per video suggest.

    Hi @telcomx,

    The selected t2 sizes may not be sufficient. What OS distribution and version is installed on the EC2s?

    FYI @chrispokorni

    Had to rebuild whole cp and worker as t2.large from scratch using recommended ubuntu and worked. Finally i managed to complete LAB 3.2 Thanks.

    This node has joined the cluster:

    • Certificate signing request was sent to apiserver and a response was received.
    • The Kubelet was informed of the new secure connection details.

    Run 'kubectl get nodes' on the control-plane to see this node join the cluster.

    ubuntu@ip-172-31-20-93:~$ kubectl get nodes
    The connection to the server localhost:8080 was refused - did you specify the right host or port?
