Aggregator and leaf nodes are not getting created in GKE

I am doing MemSQL installation on Google Kubernetes Engine.

Till kubectl create -f deployment.yaml deployment of MemSQL operator there is no problem.
Operator Status: Running

But, When I create MemSQL cluster using kubectl create -f memsql-cluster.yaml there are no new nodes [leaf and aggregator] being created

What’re the possible solutions?

Can you share the contents of your memsql-cluster.yaml file?

Having the same issue with EKS. Here is my cluster yaml:

kind: MemsqlCluster
  name: memsql-cluster
  releaseID: f102919b-6b35-4555-8956-e7a37e58abf4
  redundancyLevel: 1

    count: 1
    height: 0.5
    storageGB: 30
    storageClass: standard

    count: 1
    height: 0.5
    storageGB: 30
    storageClass: standard

I realized initially my k8s cluster did not have a node with 4 vCPUs, min required as specified by the height param. However adding one to the cluster made no difference.

Hi @Ananth

It looks like you have opened an enterprise support ticket to get this question answered. Once we troubleshoot via the support ticket, I will update this thread with the result so future users can reference it.

Check your email for an update in the support ticket soon.

Thank you!

For posterity wanted to document my resolution for this.
I was following instructions for deployment at

The thing I did wrong was I missed the * prefix for the admin password. The operator logs in my case clearly indicated that this was needed.
