Kubernetes Cluster on AWS using Kops running on Docker for Mac


brew update && brew install kops

Adding Access & Secret Key

aws configure

This will store your credential under ~/.aws/credentials


Create a AWS Bucket

[Captains-Bay]🚩 >  aws s3api create-bucket --bucket ${bucket_name} --region us-east-1
    "Location": "/collabstore"


aws s3api put-bucket-versioning --bucket ${bucket_name} --versioning-configuration Status=Enabled

Configure DNS Name

 aws route53 create-hosted-zone --name collabnix.com --caller-reference 2
export KOPS_CLUSTER_NAME=ajeet.k8s.local

Export Cluster Name

export KOPS_CLUSTER_NAME=ajeet.k8s.local

Exporting Kops State Store

[Captains-Bay]🚩 >  export KOPS_STATE_STORE=s3://${bucket_name}
ssh-keygen -t rsa
kops create secret --name ajeet.k8s.local sshpublickey admin -i ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub
[Captains-Bay]🚩 >  kops create cluster \
> --node-count=2 \
> --node-size=t2.medium \
> --zones=us-east-1a \

Must specify –yes to apply changes

Cluster configuration has been created.


Finally configure your cluster with: kops update cluster ajeet.k8s.local –yes

[Captains-Bay]🚩 >  kops get cluster
ajeet.k8s.local	aws	us-east-1a
[Captains-Bay]🚩 >

Deploy Kubernetes

kops update cluster --name ${KOPS_CLUSTER_NAME} --yes
kops get cluster
ajeet.k8s.local	aws	us-east-1a

[Captains-Bay]🚩 >  kops update cluster --name ${KOPS_CLUSTER_NAME} --yes

kops has set your kubectl context to ajeet.k8s.local

Cluster changes have been applied to the cloud.

Changes may require instances to restart: kops rolling-update cluster

Now you can see K8s cluster under Context UI.

My image

 * validate cluster: kops validate cluster
 * list nodes: kubectl get nodes --show-labels
 * ssh to the master: ssh -i ~/.ssh/id_rsa admin@api.ajeet.k8s.local
 * the admin user is specific to Debian. If not using Debian please use the appropriate user based on your OS.
 * read about installing addons at: https://github.com/kubernetes/kops/blob/master/docs/operations/addons.md.
