Failed to install Aviatrix Cloud Controller at AWS using Sandbox Starter Tool

I was trying to spin up an Aviatrix Cloud Controller at AWS using Sandbox Starter Tool, but keep getting these errors:

> The controller will be launched in us-east-1. Initializing modules... Initializing the backend... Initializing provider plugins... - Checking for available provider plugins... --> Controller launch failed, aborting.
Registry service unreachable. This may indicate a network issue, or an issue with the requested Terraform Registry. Registry service unreachable. This may indicate a network issue, or an issue with the requested Terraform Registry.

If anyone has faced the same issue before, kindly help me to find a solution. I ran starter Tool as docker container in my laptop and accessing to Hashicorp registry is fine from my laptop, not sure why it complains Terraform registry service is unreachable.

  • I've been able to recreate your issue by denying access to the Internet from the container. Since you mention that you're able to access from the host machine. I'm wondering if there's something else involved - custom docker networking or a corporate network that detects and blocks traffic from workstation-hosted VMs or containers. I'd be interested what the response is if you 'docker exec' into the container and run curl to the terraform registry:
    docker exec -it <container_id> /bin/sh
    curl https://registry.terraform.io

    • Ni Zhengquan That looks like the clock on the machine that is hosting the container may be out of sync.

    • John Smoker  Hi John, managed to solve the time sync problem by rebooting laptop, however when came to deploy Aviatrix Transit in AWS, hit another issue. is it because Terraform version mis-match?

    • Ni Zhengquan That is an odd error. From searching that error on  the Internet, I'm not seeing anything that I would apply to your case. If you haven't tried removing and recreating the TF volume, I would do that to ensure you're operating from a fresh state since your initial issues.

  • Hi, I have a similar but not exact issue...

     

    Been trying for hours to get the sandbox environment going... I've followed all the prerequisites and changed my AWS keys multiple times but no luck...

    This is the error from the debug window.

     

    Initializing modules... Initializing the backend... Initializing provider plugins... The following providers do not have any version constraints in configuration, so the latest version was installed. To prevent automatic upgrades to new major versions that may contain breaking changes, it is recommended to add version = "..." constraints to the corresponding provider blocks in configuration, with the constraint strings suggested below. * provider.aws: version = "~> 3.36" * provider.http: version = "~> 2.1" Terraform has been successfully initialized! You may now begin working with Terraform. Try running "terraform plan" to see any changes that are required for your infrastructure. All Terraform commands should now work. If you ever set or change modules or backend configuration for Terraform, rerun this command to reinitialize your working directory. If you forget, other commands will detect it and remind you to do so if necessary. module.avtx_iam_role.data.http.iam_policy_ec2_role: Refreshing state... module.avtx_iam_role.data.http.iam_policy_assume_role: Refreshing state... module.avtx_controller_instance.data.http.avx_iam_id: Refreshing state... --> Controller launch failed, aborting.

    Please help!

    • Rudi Heydra That error, from aws, seem like a clear mismatch between the keys the tool is using and what you have configured in aws. Have you tried removing and recreating your TF volume?

    Thanks for the quick response.

    Nope... I haven't. 

    I wasn't aware... thanks for the heads up. What would the CLI command be?

    • Rudi Heydra Assuming you don't have any other containers you care about, you could do a:

      Then, start again with:

    • Rudi Heydra That appears to be either a network issue connecting to the terraform registry or could be, as was the case earlier in this thread, a time sync issue with your container host (which broke the tls connection with the terraform registry). Read above for instructions on how to test connectivity from inside the container and/or check the docker host's time settings.

    • Ni Zhengquan The default limit on VPCs per region in aws is 5. You'll either need to request that quota to be increased, or remove existing VPCs to allow room for the tool to create its VPCs.

    • raj You're getting a 403 from the aws api when attempting to get an auth token. Either the credentials you're using aren't valid, or you're not using the one you think you are (and the credentials aren't valid). The latter can occur if you've added, then changed your credentials and the tool has cached the previous version. If that's the case, you can start over by removing the starter image and volume:

      docker stop $(docker ps -q --filter ancestor=aviatrix/sandbox-starter) && docker container prune -f && docker volume rm TF
      

      Then, start again with:

  • Hi all,

    • I managed to get it installed successfully. Due to multiple attempts, there are some configurations created in AWS. Deleted them based on Aviatriax Sandbox debug. Tried the whole setup again. It works today.
