How to setup kubernete | 416 day | 531

Note: At the moment, Micro-Services-Architect (MSA) is very popular, and if you don't know about it, please access this link to get information, and the image below is an MSA.

Like the image above, we have a lot of services, so how to deploy maintain and scale-out it. Lucky, Google has been developed an open-source to help solve it, it is Kubernetes.

What is Kubernetes?

Kubernetes (K8s) is an open-source system for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications.

How to do it?

First of all, we need 2 or 3 Linux-machines due to k8s only work with Linux. You can use VirtualBox or Hyper-V to create a virtual machine.

Linux for Hyper-v.

Linux for virtual-box.

At the moment, I will practice with Hyper-v.

  1. Setup a virtaul-network like below.

2. Create a Linux-virtual-Machine.

3. After done, you can access the machine, and make all steps like below.

First, login as ‘sudo’ user because the following set of commands need to be executed with ‘sudo’ permissions. Then, update your ‘apt-get’ repository.

$ sudo su
# apt-get update

Note: After logging-in as ‘sudo’ user, note that your shell symbol will change to ‘#’ from ‘$’.

Turn Off Swap Space:

Next, we have to turn off the swap space because Kubernetes will start throwing random errors otherwise. After that you need to open the ‘fstab’ file and comment out the line which has mention of swap partition.

# swapoff -a

Install Docker:

Now we have to install Docker because Docker images will be used for managing the containers in the cluster. Run the following commands

# sudo su
# apt-get update 
# apt-get install -y

Next we have to install these 3 essential components for setting up Kubernetes environment: kubeadm, kubectl, and kubelet.

Run the following commands before installing the Kubernetes environment.

# apt-get update && apt-get install -y apt-transport-https curl
# curl -s | apt-key add -
# cat <<EOF >/etc/apt/sources.list.d/kubernetes.list
deb kubernetes-xenial main
# apt-get update

Install kubeadm, Kubelet And Kubectl

Now its time to install the 3 essential components. Kubelet is the lowest level component in Kubernetes. It’s responsible for what’s running on an individual machine. Kuebadm is used for administrating the Kubernetes cluster. Kubectl is used for controlling the configurations on various nodes inside the cluster.

# apt-get install -y kubelet kubeadm kubectl 

So now, we have been done with "Kubernetes", and now we will create node like the image below.

Like the image above we have 4 nodes, 1 master nodes, and 3 workers nodes. So, I will create a master node first with a command like below.

# kubeadm init --apiserver-advertise-address=<ip-address-of-kmaster-vm> --pod-network-cidr=

After executing the command we will get a result like below.

  1. You will get the below output. The commands marked as (1), execute them as a non-root user. This will enable you to use kubectl from the CLI.
$ mkdir -p $HOME/.kube
$ sudo cp -i /etc/kubernetes/admin.conf $HOME/.kube/config
$ sudo chown $(id -u):$(id -g) $HOME/.kube/config

To verify, if kubectl is working or not, run the following command:

$ kubectl get pods -o wide --all-namespaces

You will notice from the previous command, that all the pods are running except one: ‘kube-dns’. For resolving this we will install a pod network. To install the CALICO pod network, run the following command:

kubectl apply -f 

At the moment, we are done with master node, next, we will join the worker node like below.

kubeadm token create --print-join-command

 Then do like the image below.

To verify, if kubectl is working or not, run the following command:

kubectl get nodes

Now everything is done, next We will install dash-board like below

kubectl apply -f
kubectl proxy

 Next, we will create the service account for the dashboard and get it’s credentials.

kubectl create serviceaccount dashboard -n default

kubectl create clusterrolebinding dashboard-admin -n default 

kubectl get secret $(kubectl get serviceaccount dashboard -o jsonpath="{.secrets[0].name}") -o jsonpath="{.data.token}" | base64 --decode

You should get the token like this:

Copy this token and paste it in Dashboard Login Page, by selecting token option

 You have successfully logged into your dashboard!

So it's done now, next article I will guide you on how to deploy service on k8s.
