Azure has its own in-built Prometheus Adapter and Metrics servers, hence when deploying AKS clusters, the blueprints associated with these clusters should meet a few criteria

The creation of a blueprint with Base Blueprint default-aks, and enabling all the metrics of Monitoring & Alerting displays an error as below

AKS BP Error Message

To avoid this error, perform the below steps:

  • Login to the controller and select Blueprints under Infrastructure
  • Select default-aks from the Base Blueprint drop-down and provide the other required details
  • Click the wrench icon of Monitoring & Alerting add-on and the Customize Prometheus Addons pane appears to the right
  • Deselect the Prometheus Adapter and Metrics Server metrics and click Save

Disable Prometheus Metrics


Any customized blueprint selected for AKS cluster provisioning should have these options disabled to avoid this error
