Kubernetes and OVN

This contains a Vagrant setup for Kubernetes and OVN integration. This needs a minimum vagrant version of 1.8.5 and is known to atleast work on Mac, Ubuntu 16.04 and Windows 10.


From the cloned ovn-kubernetes repo,

  • cd vagrant

Pull down Kubernetes (it's big)

Bringup the Vagrant setup

  • vagrant up

Run some containers

The Vagrant will create some sample yaml files for configuring a pod running Apache, as well as yaml for creating an east-west service and a north-south service. To try these out, follow these instructions.

  • cd ~/k8s/server/kubernetes/server/bin
  • ./kubectl create -f ~/apache-pod.yaml
  • ./kubectl create -f ~/nginx-pod.yaml
  • ./kubectl create -f ~/apache-e-w.yaml
  • ./kubectl create -f ~/apache-n-s.yaml

You can verify the services are up and running now:

  • ./kubectl get pods
  • ./kubectl get svc

You can now get to the service from the host running Virtualbox by using the Nodeport and the IP (the public-ip for the master found in the vagrant/provisioning/virtualbox.conf.yml file).

  • curl[nodeport]

Since the vagrant initializes gateway node on the minions too, you should be able to access the same service via the IP addresses of the minion nodes too.

  • curl[nodeport]
  • curl[nodeport]

You should see OVN doing load-balancing between the pods, which means you will both the apache example page and the nginx example page.

Launch a busybox pod:

  • kubectl run -i --tty busybox --image=busybox -- sh

Verify this pod:

  • kubectl get pods
  • kubectl describe pod

You can now login to the busybox pod on the minion host and ping across pods.
