I created an EKS cluster following https://github.com/pulumi/pulumi-eks/blob/master/nodejs/eks/examples/nodegroup/index.ts and got:
Copy code

Here's what I did:
Copy code
const eksRole1 = iam.createRole(`eks-role`);
const eksInstanceProfile = new aws.iam.InstanceProfile("eks-instance-profile", {role: eksRole1});

const nodePolicy = new aws.iam.Policy("eks-node-policy", {
    namePrefix: `eks-node-${env}-`,
    policy: JSON.stringify({
        "Version": "2012-10-17",
        "Statement": [{
            "Effect": "Allow",
            "Action": [
            "Resource": "*"

new aws.iam.RolePolicyAttachment("eks-node-role-assignment", {
    policyArn: nodePolicy.arn,
    role: eksRole1

eksCluster = new eks.Cluster(`k8s-cluster-${env}`, {
    vpcId: vpc.id,
    subnetIds: vpc.publicSubnetIds,
    deployDashboard: false,
    skipDefaultNodeGroup: true,
    instanceRoles: [eksRole1]

eksCluster.createNodeGroup(`k8s-${env}-ng`, {
    instanceType: "t2.medium",
    desiredCapacity: 2,
    minSize: 1,
    maxSize: 2,
    instanceProfile: eksInstanceProfile,
Guessing the example code is missing something necessary.
pulumi up
again and it worked. There's probably a race condition in that code.
It sometimes cannot connect to api-server in the first run, I have seen this sometimes as well, generally the second run succeeds
Weird. Is there an issue for this?
Yes - see https://github.com/pulumi/pulumi-eks/issues/65. cc @creamy-potato-29402
