Deploy helm release through my local machine

Hello there :slight_smile:

I’m currently working on my own K8S cluster provided by microk8s in a dedicated server and I would like to install my helm chart through my local machine.
I’ve configured my KUBECONFIG env variable with the cluster configuration, but when I’m trying to install my chart, I’ve got a timeout.
Even if I try to run this command in my dedicated server: helm3 list I have this error: dial tcp connect: connection refused whereas with microk8s, it’s working.
I don’t really know what I’m doing wrong, but maybe the answer is: you can only install/upgrade a helm chart locally.

So, my questions are, is it possible to upgrade a helm chart outside my dedicated server in a microk8s cluster?
If not, should I use kubeadm or a lightweight one like k3s?

Thank you for your advices :slight_smile:

You need a valid kubeconfig file on connect to your cluster. It is possible to install a chart from any machine you like.
