Context: I am trying to setup a kubernetes cluster on my PC using virtual box. Here's the setup - In this setup i am able to launch pods from the control plane, as well as able to send http requests to pods enter image description here

here CP01: master/control plane, W01 - worker1, W02 - worker2 node.

I had initialized control plane using -

master] kubeadm init --apiserver-advertise-address 10.5.5.1 --pod-network-cidr 10.244.0.0/16 --cri-socket unix:///var/run/cri-dockerd.sock
worker] kubeadm join 10.5.5.1:6443  --token jv5pxe.t07snw8ewrbejn6i   --cri-socket  unix:///var/run/cri-dockerd.sock      --discovery-token-ca-cert-hash sha256:10fc6e3fdc2085085f1ea1a75c9eb4316f13759b0d3773377db86baa30d8b972

I am able to create deployment as -

run.yaml

apiVersion: apps/v1
kind: Deployment
metadata:
  name: nginx-deployment
  labels:
    app: nginx
spec:
  replicas: 2
  selector:
    matchLabels:
      app: nginx
  template:
    metadata:
      labels:
        app: nginx
    spec:
      containers:
      - name: nginx
        image: nginx:1.14.2
        ports:
        - containerPort: 80

Here's the load balancer -

serv.yaml

apiVersion: v1
kind: Service
metadata:
  name: hello-world
spec:
  type: LoadBalancer
  selector:
    app: nginx
  ports:
    - name: http
      protocol: TCP
      port: 80
      targetPort: 80

and from the cp01 node , i am able to hit both the pods via load balancer

[root@cp01 ~]# kubectl get services
NAME          TYPE           CLUSTER-IP     EXTERNAL-IP   PORT(S)        AGE
hello-world   LoadBalancer   10.96.81.128   <pending>     80:31785/TCP   3m56s
[root@cp01 ~]# curl 10.96.81.128|grep Welcome
   <title>Welcome to nginx!</title>
   <h1>Welcome to nginx!</h1>

I have following 2 Queries -

Q1: What settings to i need to carry out to make the flannel work without enp0s3 interface? I don't need external connectivity on w01 and w02. So if i disable the enp0s3 on w01 and w02, the flannel pods on worker starts failing. Here's is how i tried reproducing issue on w01 -

[root@cp01 ~]# kubectl get pods -A

here's the reason -

[root@cp01 ~]# kubectl logs -n kube-flannel kube-flannel-ds-2kqq5

Q2: I plan to send http request to the load balancer via enp0s3 interface on cp01 node. do i need to :

  • reset the cluster and do the kube init again using 0.0.0.0 ip or,
  • is there a way to accomplish it without disturbing existing configurations/setup (using ingress?) ?

Please advice. I have started learning kubernetes recently, so please excuse if i missed out on some basic concepts of the kubernetes world while framing these queries. Please do let me know if something is unclear.

UPDATE:

Q2: i tried initializing kubeadm node via -

[root@cp01 ~]# kubeadm init --apiserver-advertise-address 0.0.0.0  --pod-network-cidr 10.244.0.0/16 --cri-socket unix:///var/run/cri-dockerd.sock

but with this method, worker nodes are unable to join cluster from 10.5.5.0/24 (enp0s8) network. they are able to join cluster as -

kubeadm join 192.168.29.73:6443 --cri-socket  unix:///var/run/cri-dockerd.sock   --token 6srhn0.1lyiffiml08qcnfw --discovery-token-ca-cert-hash sha256:ab87e3e04da65176725776c08e0f924bbc07b26d0f8e2501793067e477ab6379

Kubelet would usually bind to whichever interface holds your default gateway. I suspect your SDN pods are failing to start up due to this. At that stage, I would check for netstat, ip routes and iptables rules.

You may want to remove the internal network thing. Deploying Kubernetes, it is recommended for your nodes to run in a LAN, using loadbalancers to expose your ingresses.

Otherwise, you need your default gateway to point to your internal network. And then, you'll need some kind of router, NAT-ing traffic while sending it back to your bridged network.
