vRealize Automation 8.1 P3 deploy.sh is failing with Error: cannot connect to Tiller
Updated: Jan 16, 2021
Deploying vRealize Automation 8.1 P3 fails at the "checking helm version" step with the error: cannot connect to Tiller.
This issue occurs because the tiller is running on a single vRA node in the case of vRA HA. However, if the deploy.sh is run from a node different than the tiller node, the helm requests will timeout and the deploy.sh will fail.
Download the file attached below
On only one of the vRA nodes, upload the "2672731-add-tiller-proxy.tar.gz" file in "/root"
Run this command
tar -xvf 2672731-add-tiller-proxy.tar.gz && chmod a+x 2672731-add-tiller-proxy.sh && ./2672731-add-tiller-proxy.sh && rm 2672731-add-tiller-proxy.*
Run the "helm ls" command from all vRA nodes to confirm that helm can be reached from all vRA nodes
