Error dialing backend: EOF (Google Kubernetes Engine)
I run gitlab and gitlab-runner on kubernetes. From time to time we get errors like this one:
Running with gitlab-runner 10.6.0 (a3543a27) on Kubernetes Runner 7974b466 Using Kubernetes namespace: gitlab-runner-jobs Using Kubernetes executor with image node:9.7-alpine ... Waiting for pod gitlab-runner-jobs/runner-7974b466-project-458-concurrent-02vczw to be running, status is Pending ERROR: Job failed (system failure): error dialing backend: EOF
Unfortunately I don't know what else to tell you about this: It happens from time to time.
What actually happens The job fails and leaves only this very short error message.
I expect the job to start.
