We’re trying to pilot Prometheus services as a container in our enclave (along with the node exporter and Grafana). 

 

This is with podman 3.4.2 on RHEL 8.1.  I’m using the following URL as a reference to try and setup DHCP services from the physical network for the Prometheus container.  We are doing it this way so anyone on the network with a web browser can reach the UI.

 

https://www.redhat.com/sysadmin/leasing-ips-podman

 

I setup a .conflist file under /etc/cni/net.d created the following file:

 

91-prometheus.conflist (just gave it a generic name, wasn’t sure if there was a naming convention)  ================================

 

 

{

                "cniVersion": "0.4.0",

               "name": "prod_network",  (name of prod_network)   ============================

                "plugins": [

                                {

                                                "type": "macvlan",

                                                "master": "eno1",

                                                "ipam": {

                                                                "type": "dhcp"

                                                                }

                                }

                ]

}

 

 

I enable and started the following .socket file

 

[user_a@computer_a net.d]$ sudo systemctl list-unit-files --type=socket | grep -i "podman"

io.podman.dhcp.socket           enabled

 

[user_a@computer_a net.d]$ sudo systemctl status io.podman.dhcp.socket

ERRO[0164] error loading cached network config: network "prod_network" not found in CNI cache

WARN[0164] falling back to loading from existing plugins on disk

 

 

The container never runs, just shows started status and then outputs the ERRO and WARN.  Since it doesn’t run, can’t look at the logs for it. 

 

Where is the best place to start to troubleshoot this?  As I followed the directions from the article step-by-step. 

 

Also is there a better way to present a container to our prod network that is running local on my RHEL workstation?

 

Thanks
