Can’t connect to kubernetes API from inside the cluster

Tags: , , ,



I’m trying to use the fabric8io/kubernetes-client in a simple example on my local minikube cluster where I get an IP of a pod

import io.fabric8.kubernetes.client.Config;
import io.fabric8.kubernetes.client.ConfigBuilder;
import io.fabric8.kubernetes.client.DefaultKubernetesClient;
import io.fabric8.kubernetes.client.KubernetesClient;

public class PodLogExample {

  public static void main(String[] args) throws InterruptedException {

    String podName = "some-pod-name-jnfen3";
    String namespace = "default";
    String master = "https://localhost:32780/";

    Config config = new ConfigBuilder().withMasterUrl(master).build();
    KubernetesClient client = new DefaultKubernetesClient(config);
    String podIP = client.pods().inNamespace(namespace).withName(podName).get().getStatus().getPodIP();
    System.out.println("Pod IP is: " + podIP);
    Thread.sleep(5 * 1000);
    client.close();
  }
}

some-pod-name-jnfen3 is a name of a pod which finished execution and visible if I execute kubectl get pods.

https://localhost:32780/ is a kubernetes API host which I get from kubectl config view -o jsonpath="{.clusters[?(@.name=="minikube")].cluster.server}".

  • minikube has only 1 node.
  • fabric8io/kubernetes-client version is 4.9.1
  • Java 11

I deploy this code as a Job on the same cluster as the some-pod-name-jnfen3. Here’s the Exception:

Exception in thread "main" io.fabric8.kubernetes.client.KubernetesClientException: Operation: [get]  for kind: [Pod]  with name: [some-pod-name-jnfen3]  in namespace: [default]  failed.

For some reason it can’t connect to the kubernetes API host.

How can I fix it?

UPDATE

If I don’t pass the config to the client, it gets the correct master IP and then fails with the following exception

Exception in thread "main" io.fabric8.kubernetes.client.KubernetesClientException: Failure executing: GET at: https://10.96.0.1/api/v1/namespaces/default/pods/some-pod-name-jnfen3.

Answer

kubectl config view -o jsonpath="{.clusters[?(@.name=="minikube")].cluster.server}" returns the relative IP. It is different for the Pod.

Not passing config will make the library find the correct IP.

Also a new service account should be created and set in the job.yaml.

The default service account doesn’t have permissions to fetch k8s entities.
