kubectl: Unable to connect to the server: i/o timeout
Hi! yesterday I set up a kubernetes cluster on DigitalOcean and today I ran the following steps:
$doctl kubernetes cluster kubeconfig save fyx-cluster (OK) $kubectl config current-context (prints cluster name) $kubectl apply -f gitlab-admin-service-account.yaml Unable to connect to the server: dial tcp <IP address>:443: i/o timeout
I run the last command repeatedly, same error.
Now, 10 minutes later, the same command succeeds:
$kubectl apply -f gitlab-admin-service-account.yaml serviceaccount/gitlab-admin created clusterrolebinding.rbac.authorization.k8s.io/gitlab-admin created
Is there a way I can avoid these timeouts in the future?
