Docker Host added to Kubernetes Cluster and showing the same machine id


Kubernetes nodes and hosts are not connected correctly.


This could happen if every node in the cluster has an identical machineId, which should be a unique identifier for k8s nodes. 

Kubernetes API does not provide the mac address.  We have to use the machine-id.  Furthermore, machine-id's are intended to be unique - not just for Instana, but for everything.  Every host needs a unique machine-id in the same way that they need unique IP Addresses, mac addresses, etc.  Please see:

We recommend that you fix your deployment scripts to generate unique machine-id's in order to resolve this issue.
