Learn how to set the context to work with your cluster by using the
kubectl CLI, access the Kubernetes dashboard, and gather basic information about your cluster.
Set the context for your cluster in your CLI. Every time you log in to the IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service CLI to work with the cluster, you must run these commands to set the path to the cluster's configuration file as a session variable. The Kubernetes CLI uses this variable to find a local configuration file and certificates that are necessary to connect with the cluster in IBM Cloud.
a. List the available clusters.
ibmcloud ks clusters
b. Set an environment variable for your cluster name:
c. Download the configuration file and certificates for your cluster using the
ibmcloud ks cluster config --cluster $MYCLUSTER
Get basic information about your cluster and its worker nodes. This information can help you manage your cluster and troubleshoot issues.
a. View details of your cluster.
ibmcloud ks cluster get --cluster $MYCLUSTER
b. Verify the worker nodes in the cluster.
ibmcloud ks workers --cluster $MYCLUSTER
Validate access to your cluster by viewing the nodes in the cluster.
kubectl get nodes
From the command line
kubectl get all
or each deployment and service listed run
kubectl delete deploy [deployment 1] [deployment n]kubectl delete service [service 1] [service n]
From your command line, run:
git clone https://github.com/IBM/istio101cd istio101/workshop
This is the working directory for the workshop. You will use the example
.yaml files that are located in the
workshop/plans directory in the following exercises.
