Minikube cnvrg dashboard doesn't load

Hi,

I followed the instructions here: https://app.cnvrg.io/docs/guides/helm-install.html#run-the-helm-chart.

My following helm install and the output:

helm install cnvrg cnvrg/cnvrg --timeout 1500s --wait --set global.node=minikube

NOTES:
🚀 Thank you for installing cnvrg.io!

Your installation of cnvrg.io is now available, and can be reached via:

http://1.1.1.1:30080

But, visiting http://1.1.1.1:30080 shows that it can’t be reached. All the pods look like they are running okay, so how should I debug this?

Thanks

Hey,
thanks for trying out cnvrg! :slight_smile:
Leet me try to help you debug the issue - does 1.1.1.1 reflect the external ip of the machine? can you run curl ifconfig.io and see if thats the ip of your machine?

Hey Leah,

Thanks for the quick response.

My external ip of my machine is: 99.xxx.xx.xxx, so it isn’t 1.1.1.1

What changes can I make or what flags can I set to fix this?

Thanks

when you setup the cnvrg application you can run:

helm install cnvrg cnvrg/cnvrg --timeout 1500s  --wait \
	--set global.external_ip=<ip_of_cluster> \
    --set global.node=<name_of_node>

instead of the <ip_of_cluster> you can set the ip you found
let me know if that helped!

Hi Leah,

Thanks, but as far as I know Minikube doesn’t support LoadBalancer services, so the service “cnvrg-app” would never get an external ip.

However, I just exposed the external port instead and it works.
minikube -n cnvrg service cnvrg-app

Maybe you guys can reflect this in your docs :slight_smile:

Thanks for the help anyways!
