DNS A record for DOKS load balancer not resolving

Posted March 15, 2021 360 views

I created a LoadBalancer Service in my DOKS following this guide: I confirm that I can access my deployment via its external IP.

I tried adding an A record in my Cloudflare DNS that maps a subdomain staging to the LoadBalancer’s IP address.

For some unknown reason, my DNS does not want to resolve this A record. Is there something I need to add to my LoadBalancer spec that will accept requests from my subdomain request?
