Rancher-Server v2.7 is installed on a docker. I downloaded a Ubuntu 20.04 cloud vm template from https://cloud-images.ubuntu.com/focal/current/ and created a template on vsphere. Using the Rancher Server UI, created a cluster on vsphere env. Added the add-on config in the UI as well for CPI and CSI. Nodes gets created but it gets stuck in
Waiting for cluster agent to connect
. Any suggestions on what is missing?
seeing this error on
vsphere-cpi-cloud-controller-manager
on the node
