About this Hands-on Lab

In this lab you will be deploying resources for your OpenShift installation using an Azure Resource Manager (ARM) template from the git repo for this lab. You will need to deploy using the Azure CLI tools, so you will need to configure your cloud shell and use the bash terminal for this lab. After you have deployed your resources, you should have all the resources necessary for your OpenShift installation.

Learning Objectives

Successfully complete this lab by achieving the following learning objectives:

Configure Cloud Shell

Set up Cloud Shell by clicking the Cloud Shell button in the top-right corner of the screen:

"Azure Cloud Shell"

  1. When prompted to choose an environment, click Bash to begin configuring the Cloud Shell.
  2. On the "You have no storage mounted" window, click Show advanced settings.
  3. Use the same location as your lab provided resource group.
  4. Use the lab provided subscription.
  5. Use the existing resource group.
  6. Under Storage account, click the radio button for Use existing. If not available, choose create new and put in a valid unique name.
  7. Under File share, choose the radio button for Create new and specify 123okd as the new file share name.
    Click Create storage.
Download SSH Keys for the Lab

You will need to pull down the SSH keys to connect to the VMs using SSH. First, make the .ssh directory, if it isn’t already there, with the mkdir command.

Then cd into the .ssh directory.

Now, use wget to pull down the SSH keys using these links:

Change the permission to the files to 600.

Deploy OpenShift Resources

Deploy the resources for the OpenShift installation using an ARM template from the lab’s Git repo. The URL to use is:

You will need to use Azure CLI to deploy the template.

Once the resources have been deployed, connect to the bastion host using SSH confirm it is working.

Reset SSH public key for each VM

Reset the SSH public key by going to the VM and going to the "Reset password" section of Support + Troubleshooting. Select Reset SSH public key. Next enter the username azureuserand the contents of your file you downloaded in Task 2.

"Reset SSH public key"

Additional Resources

A developer by the name of Wichita, who you befriended earlier in the day, popped into your office to warn you that the boss is on a rampage! He just got chewed out in a meeting with the top brass, who were not happy with the progress that has been made so far with the super-secret project. They are expecting to see more than just a key vault deployed. We need to get the resources for OpenShift deployed and fast. Use the Azure CLI Tools to deploy the Azure Resource Manager template you created to deploy all the resources needed with one fell swoop.

UPDATE: Use West US for this lab.
