vRealize Automation 8.1 P3 is failing with Error: cannot connect to Tiller

Updated: Jan 16, 2021

Deploying vRealize Automation 8.1 P3 fails at the "checking helm version" step with the error: cannot connect to Tiller.

This issue occurs because the tiller is running on a single vRA node in the case of vRA HA. However, if the is run from a node different than the tiller node, the helm requests will timeout and the will fail.

On only one of the vRA nodes, upload the "2672731-add-tiller-proxy.tar.gz" file in "/root"

Run this command

tar -xvf 2672731-add-tiller-proxy.tar.gz && chmod a+x && ./ && rm 2672731-add-tiller-proxy.*

Run the "helm ls" command from all vRA nodes to confirm that helm can be reached from all vRA nodes
