Another issue I am facing when trying to apply seperation of concerns. When I try to setup an external Postgres and reference the service name as host, it does not work. Should it be something else than the service name? Postgres is up an running, service as well and is tested. Secret and user are working as well. The dagit and dagster-deamon pod are stuck in
Containers with incomplete status: [check-db-ready]
In the logs it just shows:
Copy code
\tdagster-postgresql:5432 - no response
waiting for database
Even though the service is there... Again, thanks for any input!
