I have an Amazon EKS Kubernetes cluster and have the need to run a CronJob on it. However, when I published the manifest to k8s, the object is there, I can list it, get it, but I cannot describe it and see its events. Also, it doesn't seem to start at all. According to my cron pattern, it should have started on the first hour.

What I have done so far:

I have created the manifest for the CronJob:

apiVersion: batch/v1beta1 kind: CronJob metadata: name: aws-ecr-token namespace: default labels: app: aws-ecr-token component: infrastructure spec: schedule: "* */11 * * *" jobTemplate: metadata: name: aws-ecr-token namespace: default labels: app: aws-ecr-token component: infrastructure spec: completions: 1 backoffLimit: 3 activeDeadlineSeconds: 60 parallelism: 1 template: metadata: name: aws-ecr-token namespace: default labels: app: aws-ecr-token component: infrastructure spec: containers: - name: aws-ecr-token image: docker pull mesosphere/aws-cli command: - "sh" - "-c" - "$(aws ecr get-login --no-include-email)" env: - name: AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID valueFrom: secretKeyRef: name: aws-ecr key: accessKey - name: AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY valueFrom: secretKeyRef: name: aws-ecr key: secretKey - name: AWS_DEFAULT_REGION valueFrom: secretKeyRef: name: aws-ecr key: defaultRegion volumeMounts: - name: aws-ecr-config mountPath: /root/.docker restartPolicy: OnFailure volumes: - name: aws-ecr-config secret: secretName: aws-ecr-config

Published it using:

$ kubectl apply -f aws-ecr-token-cron-job.yaml

I can get it:

$ kubectl get cronjobs NAME SCHEDULE SUSPEND ACTIVE LAST SCHEDULE AGE aws-ecr-token * */11 * * * False 0 <none> 26m But it never gets scheduled.

When I try to describe it, it shows:

$ kubectl describe cronjobs Error from server (NotFound): the server could not find the requested resource

Any ideas why?

My version is:

$ kubectl version Client Version: version.Info{Major:"1", Minor:"10", GitVersion:"v1.10.0", GitCommit:"fc32d2f3698e36b93322a3465f63a14e9f0eaead", GitTreeState:"clean", BuildDate:"2018-03-26T16:55:54Z", GoVersion:"go1.9.3", Compiler:"gc", Platform:"linux/amd64"} Server Version: version.Info{Major:"1", Minor:"10+", GitVersion:"v1.10.11-eks", GitCommit:"6bf27214b7e3e1e47dce27dcbd73ee1b27adadd0", GitTreeState:"clean", BuildDate:"2018-12-04T13:33:10Z", GoVersion:"go1.9.3", Compiler:"gc", Platform:"linux/amd64"}

Thanks in advance :)
