    I hit this today too. Looks like kubectl didn't have the --address flag until >v1.13. I think re-running az aks install-cli should fix things? If not, check and see if you have more than one kubectl in your path (cmd prompt, run "where kubectl"). I had a second copy inside the docker install that was overriding the azure installed version.

    I just hit the same thing today trying to run az aks browse in Azure Cloud Shell.

    thanks superlime! updating kubectl to > 1.13 worked for me. I would've expected the azure-cli to force a kubectl update if there is a dependency on a specific version.

    That worked for me locally but Cloud Shell doesn't appear to allow kubectl upgrades.

    Upgrading CLI seems to download new version 1.13.4: $ az aks install-cli Downloading client to "C:\Users\paaland.azure-kubectl\kubectl.exe" from "https://storage.googleapis.com/kubernetes-release/release/v1.13.4/bin/windows/amd64/kubectl.exe"

    But running kubecl version afterwards shows v1.10.11.

    Not sure where az aks install-cli puts the file. But it's apparently not the first place in my path.

    Running "which kubectl.exe" (cygwin) shows it will run /Program Files/Docker/Docker/Resources/bin/kubectl.exe which is the v1.10.11 version.

    Searching for kubectl.exe also shows a copy in:

    c:\Users\.azure-kubectl\kubectl.exe which is the v1.13.4 one. So changeing path order to ensure it hits the last one should work.

    tldr: If you have Docker for Windows installed with kubernetes support it stores an older version of kubectl.exe in c:\Program Files\Docker\Docker\Resources\bin\kubectl.exe which is earlier in the PATH setting than c:\Users\.azure-kubectl\kubectl.exe which is the one AZ CLI places.

    Either upgrade/remove the docker one, or change your path order.

    I had a similar issue due to conflicting versions of kubectl on my mac. which kubectl was resolving to a version installed via google-cloud-sdk, which installed a script in my .bash_profile that prepended /Users/me/google-cloud-sdk/bin to my PATH. I removed the script (you might want to manually append google-cloud-sdk to your path), opened a new shell, and the az aks browse worked!

    Should be fixed with recent versions of kubectl.
