Introduction – Exiting due to GUEST_PROVISION

So, if you are trying to start the kubernetes tutorial from https://kubernetes.io/fr/docs/setup/learning-environment/minikube and you want to start minikube by the command :

minikube start

Then, you are getting this error :

minikube v1.17.1 sur Darwin 10.15.7
✨  Utilisation du pilote ssh basé sur le profil existant
👍  Démarrage du noeud de plan de contrôle minikube dans le cluster minikube
🤦  StartHost failed, but will try again: config: please provide an IP address
😿  Failed to start ssh bare metal machine. Running "minikube delete" may fix it: config: please provide an IP address

❌  Exiting due to GUEST_PROVISION: Failed to start host: config: please provide an IP address

😿  If the above advice does not help, please let us know:

If you are running with docker you will find on https://minikube.sigs.k8s.io/docs/drivers/docker/ what i have done is to delete the last minkube cluster and rerun with the command specify the docker :

minikube delete

You will get :
