View kubernetes startup logs

Kubernetes is not working for me. etcd is not starting. I’d like to see some logs.

How can I increase the log level in Docker for Desktop?

Are any logs written in other places ( not on the linux vm, maybe on the windows host)?

I’ve looked in these places and have not seen a reason for etcd failing

  1. logs of the kubernetes containers, “docker logs k8s_POD…”
  2. under my home directory AppData\Local\Docker
  3. logs on mobylinux host with:
    docker run -it --net=host --ipc=host --uts=host --pid=host --security-opt=seccomp=unconfined --privileged --rm -v //:/host alpine cat /host/var/log/docker.log | less
