Installation on Google Cloud Platform k8 - cannot login


#1

Hi

I just installed the preview container on a new k8 cluster on Google Cloud Platform. I exposed port 8065 via the load balancer.

I get the error: Invalid or expired session, please login again.

Any tips on what I’m doing wrong?

Thanks

Ben

Hi

The cluster version of kubernetes that I have deployed to on Google Cloud Platform is 1.10.7-gke.1.

I deployed the following mattermost image:

https://hub.docker.com/r/mattermost/mattermost-preview/

I am using Chrome Version 69.0.3497.92 on macos 10.13.6.

I appear to have three pods that Google has deployed for me. I kubectl exec onto eaxh of them and I can see nothing under /opt.

The stack driver logs in Google Cloud Platform seem to indicate problems with creating the kube-system namespace in the Audit resource but otherwise no mattermost related errors…

Is this all the information you need?

How do I confirm that mattermost is actually running in the context of k8 running on Google CLoud Platform?

Thanks

Ben

OK - so it looks like the problem was multiple pods that Google Cloud Platform had spun up by default.

My next question is - how do I restart the server after updating the site url when I’m running on k8?

Can a server restart be initiated through the Web UI System Console?

Thanks

Ben

Hi @bensullivan,

The server cannot be restarted from the Web UI and you’d need to use a CLI command - I found this doc with further information: https://docs.bitnami.com/google/apps/mattermost/administration/control-services/.

I found it via this Mattermost Google Cloud documentation page: https://docs.bitnami.com/google/apps/mattermost/ - let me know if it’s not what you were looking for.

Hi

Not really what I need as I’m not deployed via bitnami so I don’t have their script.

I need to know how to best restart the mattermost server process running in a container pod on a kubernetes cluster running in Google Cloud.

Thanks

Ben

Hi @bensullivan,

I found this doc that might help: https://cloud.google.com/compute/docs/instances/restarting-an-instance.

If it doesn’t help just let me know and I’ll ask our developers to help with this.
