interesting, as I can run the chart manually with that flag and have it go to
kube-tools

Hmmm, interesting. Let me take a look at the chart.

it's a copy of the stable datadog

Looking at the stable datadog template, it doesn't seem to reference
.Release.Namespace
anywhere. What's the precise command you're using to install the chart?

helm install --name datadog stable/datadog --tiller-namespace=kube-tools --namespace=kube-tools -f override.yaml
I have used a datadog namespace too w/o issue. I can update the chart with that key
Possible that we have (super/god) tiller in that namespace and this is tillerless
don't waste anymore time on it, I will mess with the chart.

@fresh-umbrella-15520 I can take a look at this, what is the helm chart version?

I think I got it, just running into an RBAC perms deal i GKE

@fresh-umbrella-15520 Oh I think I know what’s happening. What we’re doing is equivalent to
helm template
, rather than
helm install
. So if you’re expecting Tiller to do something magic then it won’t get done.

yeah, working through it now

I will be curious to see if you have feedback about how we should be presenting this to users…

will do. I was using helm with a
god
tiller so it could create the roles and rolebindings. that is the part I am working through now using tillerless.

You probably will have to do that work anyway, because they’re getting rid of Tiller 🙂

I got it to work!
Since I was using tiller that had a cluster admin role, I had not granted those perms to my GKE user
Copy code
kubectl create clusterrolebinding cluster-admin-binding \
--clusterrole cluster-admin --user [USER_ACCOUNT]
You must grant your user the ability to create roles in Kubernetes by running the following command. [USER_ACCOUNT] is the user's email address:

how did you figure this out @fresh-umbrella-15520? Maybe we can bake it into the status messages. 🙂

09/12/2018, 1:01 AM
I was under the assumption it was running as my account since tiller was out of the picture. Then @flaky-receptionist-88878 mentioned about my email address for GKE and roles

that whole stack GKE auth stack is super confusing and secretly my mission is to make all auth errors from it, trivially debuggable.

I will try this out tomorrow on EKS, as that we are using SAML and mapping to groups/roles in k8s

I am new to GKE, so those small auth differences and I was testing on home/lab stuff.
c

09/12/2018, 1:03 AM
Yeah, for our GKE library we have to generate a kubeconfig file that is compliant with their undocumented auth spec, and it was a total nightmare.
Very unpleasant, as there is no real way to debug it, except to read code and guess.

exactly, I was googling the error, but it wasn't much help
