Introduction to Troubleshooting

Troubleshooting the Element Installer comes down to knowing a little bit about kubernetes and how to check the status of the various resources. This guide will walk you through some of the initial steps that you'll want to take when things are going wrong.

install.sh problems

Sometimes there will be problems when running the ansible-playbook portion of the installer. When this happens, you can increase the verbosity of ansible logging by editing .ansible.rc in the installer directory and setting:

export ANSIBLE_DEBUG=true
export ANSIBLE_VERBOSITY=4

and re-running the installer. This will generate quite verbose output, but that typically will help pinpoint what the actual problem with the installer is.
