Ingress missing associated address/ELB

0 votes

I'm trying to assign a certificate and secure it with TLS/HTTPS. Initially I setup nginx-ingress on EKS using Helm

I tried to get the sample app working (cafe) using the following config:

apiVersion: extensions/v1beta1
kind: Ingress
metadata:
  name: cafe-ingress
spec:
  tls:
  - hosts:
    - cafe.example.com
    secretName: cafe-secret
  rules:
  - host: cafe.example.com
    http:
      paths:
      - path: /tea
        backend:
          serviceName: tea-svc
          servicePort: 80
      - path: /coffee
        backend:
          serviceName: coffee-svc
          servicePort: 80

The ingress and all supported services/deploys worked fine but there's one major thing missing: the ingress doesn't have an associated address/ELB:

NAME           HOSTS                 ADDRESS   PORTS     AGE
cafe-ingress   cafe.example.com                80, 443   12h

Service LoadBalancers create ELB resources, i.e.:

testnodeapp    LoadBalancer   172.20.4.161     a64b46f3588fe...   80:32107/TCP     13h

However, the Ingress is not creating an address. How do I get an Ingress controller exposed externally on EKS to handle TLS/HTTPS?

To get up and running on EKS:

  1. Deploy EKS using the CloudFormation template here: Keep in mind that I've restricted access with the CidrIp: 193.22.12.32/32. Change this to suit your needs.

  2. Install Client Tools. Follow the guide here.

  3. Configure the client. Follow the guide here.
  4. Enable the worker nodes. Follow the guide here

You can verify that the cluster is up and running and you are pointing to it by running:

kubectl get svc

Deploy nginx-ingress:

kubectl apply -f https://raw.githubusercontent.com/kubernetes/ingress-nginx/master/deploy/mandatory.yaml
kubectl apply -f https://raw.githubusercontent.com/kubernetes/ingress-nginx/master/deploy/provider/cloud-generic.yaml

Fetch rbac.yml

kubectl apply -f rbac.yml

Have a certificate and key ready for testing. Create the necessary secret like so:

kubectl create secret tls cafe-secret --key mycert.key --cert mycert.crt -n ingress-nginx

Copy coffee.yml from here. Copy coffee-ingress.yml from here. Update the domain you want to run this under. Run them like so

kubectl apply -f coffee.yaml
kubectl apply -f coffee-ingress.yaml

Update the CNAME for your domain to point to the ADDRESS for:

kubectl get ing -n ingress-nginx -o wide

Refresh DNS cache and test the domain. You should get a secure page with request stats. I've replicated this multiple times so if it fails to work for you check the steps, config, and certificate. Also, check the logs on the nginx-ingress-controller* pod.

kubectl logs pod/nginx-ingress-controller-*********** -n ingress-nginx
