Hands-On Lab

In this lab, you will build a cluster from scratch, as well as test the components of the cluster (including the deployments, pods, port forwarding, and services) and execute a command from within a pod. In order to build the Kubernetes cluster, we need to install the container runtime, as well as kubeadm, kubectl, and kubelet. We will then initialize the cluster, add our CNI, and add the nodes to the cluster.

Note: Please wait an extra minute at the start of the lab and provide some extra time between steps to make sure the previous lab steps has fully completed.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
