I provisioned a kubernetes cluster on my own couple of virtual machines via kubespray.
The VM's network is bridged adapter and kubespray uses calico as default network-plugin.

Before sometime, I've switched to another network and as a result of the router change, the internal IP addresses have been changed.

When I run kubectl get nodes on the master node I get -
Unable to connect to server : dial tcp <master previous IP>:6443: connect: network is unreachable
In addition, the vm doesn't generate a new ip for the machine (- from the current router.).

My question is, How can I change the ip's of the nodes ?

Attached is the screenshot of my laptop that shows the k8s nodes and the column I wish to edit.
(- The screenshot is fro when I've been connected to the network via the previous router.)

enter image description here

Thanks in advance for any help !

  • If I understood correctly, you want to change the node IP. This column display the nodes IPs, so you need to change the IP in your OS and re-join the nodes again, because Kubernetes doesn't manage this IPs. Could you confirm if I understood correctly, and if not give more details about or issue? – KoopaKiller Mar 16 at 8:36
  • No. I shutdown all the servers and now I have new ip's (- even for the master itself.). And the master dosn't success even to show the nodes. As, it tell me that it tries to connect to the previous master ip. – Sara Ben Shabbat Mar 16 at 16:23
  • To use a Kubernets cluster you need first of all configure your nodes with static IP, and them make the k8s installation. Do you performed this steps before install the cluster? – KoopaKiller Mar 17 at 8:11
  • No. So, As I understand the only one option is to reinstall ?! – Sara Ben Shabbat Mar 17 at 17:01

The collumn INTERNAL-IP show your nodes IPs, Kubernetes doesn't manage this IP's.

Is recommended configure static IP for all your nodes before setup your Kubernetes cluster to avoid problems like this.

I see 2 alternatives:

  1. Set static ip displayed in INTERNAL-IP on your nodes, for examples:

Your kubectl get nodes show node2 with ip, so in node2 you need to configure this ip and reboot the node. The same step for all nodes.

  1. Edit the --node-ip in kubelet config on the node for the new IP, see this reference.
