Hi, I recently followed this guide ( , however no matter what I do (Generated a new token, did helm repo update) and reinstalled external-dns still I am getting error in the logs as per below:

  • Hi there!

    Can you tell me a bit more about where you found this log entry? When during the tutorial does this error occur?

    Is it still occurring now?

Hi @brancojunio,

I followed the tutorial and it was managed to configure everything properly. However while I was performing it, I got an idea which you could’ve easily missed. Did you install/follow all the Prerequisites guides?

In order for the article you mentioned to work, you’ll need to install everything needed for it.
