Lately one of our workspaces on TF Cloud has been intermittently failing with an error: “timeout while waiting for plugin to start”.
terraform apply Waiting for the plan to start... Terraform v1.0.0 on linux_amd64 Configuring remote state backend... Initializing Terraform configuration... │ Error: timeout while waiting for plugin to start │ │
We have been using the workspace for almost a year without any issues, but for some reason it started failing. What could the reason be?
Things I’ve tried:
- ran many targeted plans to try to identify any broken resources. All worked fine, however, when running
terraform applythe above error shows up.
- Ihave also downloaded the state file and ran plan/apply locally. All worked too.
