Zeus on Kubernetes with Windows OS
This tutorial was performed on a PC running Windows 10 Enterprise OS.
- Have VirtualBox 5.2.12 platform packages installed
- .NET Framework 4+ (the installation will attempt to install .NET 4.0 if you do not have it installed)
- Enabled VT-x or AMD-v virtualization (use the Performance tab for the CPU in the Task Manager to verify it)
Install Kubernetes command-line tool
- Install Chocolatey
1.1. Run the following command:
@"%SystemRoot%\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\powershell.exe" -NoProfile -InputFormat None -ExecutionPolicy Bypass -Command "iex ((New-Object System.Net.WebClient).DownloadString('https://chocolatey.org/install.ps1'))" && SET "PATH=%PATH%;%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\chocolatey\bin"
If you don't see any errors, you are ready to use Chocolatey!
1.2. To ensure that Chocolatey is successfully installed, type choco or choco -?.
For more information see https://chocolatey.org/install.
- Install the Kubernetes command-line tool kubectl with Chocolatey
2.1. Execute the command:
choco install kubernetes-cli
2.2. To verify that the version you’ve installed is up-to-date, run
2.3. Configure kubectl to use a remote Kubernetes cluster:
cd C:\users\yourusername (Or wherever your %HOME% directory is)
mkdir .kube cd .kube New-Item config -type file
Edit the config file with a text editor of your choice.
2.4. Check that kubectl is properly configured by getting the cluster state:
- Install Minikube v0.26.1
Download the minikube-installer.exe file, and execute the installer. This will automatically add minikube.exe to your path.
Run CMD as Administrator
Navigate to Chocolatey root folder
choco install docker
- Confirm with y
Build the image
Build an image without uploading it:
- Set the environment variables with
@FOR /f "tokens=*" %i IN ('minikube docker-env') DO @%i
- Clone the Zeus packaging project using Git Bash by executing:
git clone https://github.com/dirigiblelabs/zeus-v3-package.git
- Build the image with the Docker daemon of Minikube:
mvn clean install
docker build -t zeus .
- Set the image in the pod spec like the build tag: zeus
- Set the imagePullPolicy to Never, otherwise Kubernetes will try to download the image
Important note: You have to run eval $(minikube docker-env) on each terminal you want to use, since it only sets the environment variables for the current shell session.
