To create a new Kubernetes cluster from scratch using Nirmata follow the steps below. With this option, Kubernetes cluster will be deployed on an existing host group.
Configure firewall/security groups
Please ensure that the following ports are open in the host group:
TCP: 6443, 8080 (from master only), 2379 (for etcd), 12050 (all hosts) UDP: 4789 (VXLAN) ICMP on all ports
Create a Managed Kubernetes Cluster:
- Go to the Clusters panel and click on the Add Cluster button.
- Select: No - Install and manage Kubernetes for me
- Provide the cluster name and add host groups that you would like to install the cluster on. Also select the cluster type. Other fields are optional. Click on Create cluster and start the installation button to proceed with the cluster install.
- Within a few minutes, the cluster will be deployed, the Nirmata controller should connect and the cluster state will show as Connected.
Once the cluster is deployed and in Ready state, you can create Environments for this cluster to deploy your applications.
