Code error 403 when trying to access Kubernetes cluster

0 votes

I've created a kubernetes cluster and all the pods are in running state. But when I try to access the cluster I get a code error.

kubectl cluster info
Kubernetes master is running at https://x.x.x.x:6443
KubeDNS is running at https://x.x.x.x:6443/api/v1/namespaces/kube-system/services/kube-dns:dns/proxy

"status": "Failure",
  "message": "namespaces is forbidden: User \"system:anonymous\" cannot list namespaces at the cluster scope",
  "reason": "Forbidden",
  "details": {
    "kind": "namespaces"
  },
  "code": 403   

All my pods seem to be working fine

You get this error because you're getting blocked by RBAC policies. Basically, RBAC policies set to restrict the resources you use and limits a few of your action. 

There are two possibilities, either you haven't created an RBAC or it's somehow restricting the cluster access.

By default, your clusterrolebinding has system:anonymous set which blocks the cluster access.

Execute the following command, it will set a clusterrole as cluster-admin which will give you the required access.

kubectl create clusterrolebinding cluster-system-anonymous --clusterrole=cluster-admin --user=system:anonymous
