You're welcome :-)

To keep with the docker mechanism, look at this to make your life easier :

Great Stuff, need to check that one out... i was indeed struggling with setting it up

I was running 2 local VMs, one with Connections6 and other running CfC,K8s,...Orient-me. Both VMs use /etc/hosts to connect to each other without using dns.

However my pods cant connect to my Connections server defined in /etc/hosts located on the native OS

[root@om bin]# kubectl exec -it $(kubectl get pods | grep people-migrate | awk '{print $1}') bash

[root@people-migrate-4029352936-dz9sh app]# ping

ping: Name or service not known
