Connections refused when admission webhooks are called in Kubernetes cluster?
I’ve been trying to deploy and configure Istio within a Kubernetes cluster (both with and without Helm), but there seems to be an issue when it comes to the webhooks it uses. The sidecar injector and the config validation webhooks return with a
failed calling admission webhook: connection refused error, despite all pods and services running correctly.
I’ve seen mentions of required
kube-apiserver plugins (
ValidatingAdmissionWebhook) for these webhooks to function - are these included with the Kubernetes clusters we create? Or is there something additional in DigitalOcean that is blocking these requests? Does anyone else have experience with this issue?
