As I was trying out linkerd with our infrastructure I encountered a problem with the required service with type loadbalancer. We have an external loadbalancer which sends everything to the node, where ambassador is running with a service type nodeport.
Are there ways to overwrite the used IP for the gateway? As I understand the IP gets read from the service-status, and not even externalIPs from the service-definition are used. ( An annotation on the service would also be enough)
Or are there any known plans to include functionality to support external loadbalancers instead of the service-type loadbalancer?
Cheers and I’m thankful for any help I can get on this issue.
