Hello,

I use the following workflow: • created a temporary pod with vault binary inside. Used for it serviceAccount: vault-injector-agent-injector , which is also used by the vault-injector-agent-injector pod • then I exec into the temporary pod and execute

$ vault write "auth/k8s-main/config" \
  token_reviewer_jwt="$(cat /var/run/secrets/kubernetes.io/serviceaccount/token)" \
  [email protected]/var/run/secrets/kubernetes.io/serviceaccount/ca.crt \
  kubernetes_host="https://${KUBERNETES_HOST}" \
  issuer="${ISSUER}"
Success! Data written to: auth/k8s-main/config

As long as this pod is running everything is fine and Vault Injector works as expected. When I kill the temporary pod then my pods (which use Vault Injector) get stuck in Init:0/1 state and the logs hang with:

$ kubectl -n some-ns logs -f --tail 10 some-pod-69785cc69b-4j9mt -c vault-agent-init
