Thanks for the quick responses and reassurances that I am on the right track. I think there are some assumptions made in the process that I am not following.
For example, jackrabbit is failing due to Postgres:
Postgres is not ready; reason=could not translate host name "postgres.postgres.svc.cluster.local" to address: Name does not resolve
; retrying in 10.0 seconds
I assumed the installation would handle this and I thought I answered the question appropriately to have it do this:
What could be happening here?
