CoreDNS pods stuck in ContainerCreating

Cluster information:

Kubernetes version: 1.22.2
Cloud being used: bare-metal
Installation method: yum repo
Host OS: Oracle Linux Server 7.9
CNI and version: weave 0.3.0

You can format your yaml by highlighting it and pressing Ctrl-Shift-C, it will make your output easier to read.

I am still new to Kubernetes and I was trying to set up a cluster on bare metal servers according to the official docu.

Right now I am running a one worker and one master node configuration, but I am struggling to run all the pods once the cluster initializes. The main problem is the coredns pods, that are stuck in the ContainerCreating state.

 NAMESPACE     NAME                                     READY   STATUS              RESTARTS   AGE

After checking the logs I’ve noticed this error. The problem is I don’t really know what the error is refering to.

I’ve running the kuberenetes cluster behind a corporate proxy. I’ve set the environmental variables as follows.

export https_proxy=http://proxyIP:PORT
export http_proxy=http://proxyIP:PORT
export HTTP_PROXY="${http_proxy}"
export HTTPS_PROXY="${https_proxy}"
export NO_PROXY=localhost,127.0.0.1,master_node_IP,worker_node_IP,10.0.0.0/8,10.96.0.0/16

I’ve got weave network plugin installed. The issue is that I cannot create any other pods, all will get stuck in the ContainerCreating state.

I’ve run out of ideas how to fix it. Can someone give me a hint ?
