Hey there!

That error sounds like there is a certificate mismatch. How are you currently trying to connect?

We have this guide for connecting to your cluster: https://www.digitalocean.com/docs/kubernetes/how-to/connect-to-cluster/

If that doesn’t resolve the issue, please open a support ticket so we can continue assisting.
