Certified Kubernetes Administrator (CKA) Practice Exam: Part 7

  • 3 Learning Objectives

About this Hands-on Lab

This lab provides practice scenarios to help prepare you for the Certified Kubernetes Administrator (CKA) Exam. You will be presented with tasks to complete as well as server(s) and/or an existing Kubernetes cluster to complete them in. You will need to use your knowledge of Kubernetes to successfully complete the provided tasks, much like you would on the real CKA exam. Good luck!

Learning Objectives

Successfully complete this lab by achieving the following learning objectives:

Create a PersistentVolume
  1. Create a PersistentVolume called host-storage-pv with a storage capacity of 1Gi in the acgk8s context. Configure this PersistentVolume so that volumes that use it can be expanded in the future.

    Note: This may require you to create additional objects.

  2. Configure the PersistentVolume to use a hostPath for storage located at /etc/data.
  3. Configure the PersistentVolume so that it can be automatically reused if all claims are deleted.
Create a Pod That Uses the PersistentVolume for Storage
  1. Create a Pod called pv-pod in the auth Namespace. Configure this Pod so that it uses the host-storage-pv PersistentVolume for storage.

    Note: This will require the creation of a PersistentVolumeClaim in the same namespace as the Pod.

  2. Name the PersistentVolumeClaim host-storage-pvc. Give your PersistentVolumeClaim a size of 100Mi.
  3. Use the busybox image for this Pod, and configure it to run the command sh -c while true; do echo success > /output/output.log; sleep 5; done.
  4. Mount the volume that uses the PersistentVolume for storage, such that the /output directory ultimately writes to the PersistentVolume.
Expand the PersistentVolumeClaim

Expand the PersistentVolumeClaim so that the requested storage size is 200Mi.

Additional Resources

This question uses the acgk8s cluster. After logging in to the exam server, switch to the correct context with the command kubectl config use-context acgk8s.

Each of the objectives represents a task that you will need to complete using the available cluster and server(s). Read each objective carefully and complete the task specified.

For some objectives, you may need to ssh into other nodes or servers from the exam server. You can do so using the hostname/node name (i.e., ssh acgk8s-worker1).

Note: You cannot ssh in to another node, or use kubectl to connect to the cluster, from any node other than the root node. Once you have completed the necessary tasks on a server, be sure to exit and return to the root node before proceeding.

If you need to assume root privileges on a server, you can do so with sudo -i.

You can run the verification script located at /home/cloud_user/verify.sh at any time to check your work!
