Requirements

Deploy cluster

  • In Azure dashboard choose Create a resource
  • Choose Kubernetes Service

Cluster basics (version >=1.10)

basics

Cluster authentication (Enable RBAC)

basics

Wait for cluster to be created

basics

Move to control using kubectl

  • Login to Azure using CLI

    $ az login
      [
        {
          "cloudName": "AzureCloud",
          "id": "...",
          "isDefault": true,
          "name": "ArangoDB-INC",
          "state": "Enabled",
          "tenantId": "...",
          "user": {
            "name": "xxx@arangodb.com",
            "type": "user"
          }
        }
      ]
    
  • Get AKS credentials to merge with local config, using resource group and cluster names used for above deployment

      $ az aks get-credentials --resource-group clifton --name ArangoDB
    
  • Verify successful merge

    $ kubectl get svc
      NAME         TYPE        CLUSTER-IP   EXTERNAL-IP   PORT(S)   AGE
      kubernetes   ClusterIP   10.0.0.1     <none>        443/TCP   38m
    
  • Initialize helm

    $ kubectl create serviceaccount --namespace kube-system tiller
      serviceaccount/tiller created
    
    $ kubectl create clusterrolebinding tiller-cluster-rule \
          --clusterrole=cluster-admin --serviceaccount=kube-system:tiller
      clusterrolebinding.rbac.authorization.k8s.io/tiller-cluster-rule created
    
    $ helm init --service-account tiller
      $HELM_HOME has been configured at /home/xxx/.helm.
      ...
      Happy Helming!
    
      Tiller (the Helm server-side component) has been
      installed into your Kubernetes Cluster.
