About this Hands-on Lab

This lab provides practice scenarios to help prepare you for the Certified Kubernetes Application Developer (CKAD) 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 CKAD exam. Good luck!

Learning Objectives

Successfully complete this lab by achieving the following learning objectives:

Expose an Application with a NodePort Service

There is a Deployment called willow in the buffy Namespace.

Expose this Deployment on port 8082 and target port 80 using a NodePort-type Service called willow-svc.

Provide Network Access between Pods via a NetworkPolicy

There are several Pods in the giles Namespace. The xander Pod needs to be able to reach out to both api-1 and api-2, but it currently cannot do so due to the NetworkPolicy setup.

Without creating, changing, or removing any existing NetworkPolicies, provide the xander Pod with access to api-1 and api-2, but not any other Pods in the Namespace. You should be able to do this by only making changes to the xander Pod and no other objects.

Additional Resources

Use the provided environment to complete the tasks detailed in the learning objectives.

You can access all components of the cluster from the CLI server. The control plane server is k8s-control, and the worker is k8s-worker1. If you need to log in to the control plane server, for example, just use ssh k8s-control from the CLI server.

You can also use kubectl from the CLI server, control plane node, or worker to interact with the cluster. In order to use kubectl from the CLI server, you will need to select the acgk8s cluster to interact with, like so: kubectl config use-context acgk8s.

kubectl is aliased to k, and Kubernetes autocompletion is enabled. You can use the k alias like so: k get pods.

This lab includes a verification script to help you determine whether you have completed the objectives successfully. You can run the verification script with /home/cloud_user/verify.sh.
