Access Grafana Dashboard

I have set up a 3 node kubernetes host cluster using rancher. I want to use the monitoring-grafana service which is installed by default on the nodes. I change the service type of the monitoring grafana service to Nodeport to expose it to a specific port. However i am still unable to access it. Below are the config details.

port-fowarding should work:

kubectl port-forward -n kube-system "$(kubectl get -n kube-system pod --selector=k8s-app=grafana -o jsonpath='{}')" 3000

Hi @jrosengren I ran the above command and it started listening on port 3000, however i was unable to access it using <Rancher_server_IP>:3000

Below is the out put of the kubectl cluster-info command : and also the screenshot of the grafana dashboard when trying to access the mentioned url in the info:

After you create the port-forward through kubectl, you would access via http://localhost:3000

thanks @jrosengren. I exposed the grafana service type as loadbalancer and was able to access the dashboard.
