About this Hands-on Lab

In this hands-on lab, we will install Helm and configure the standard repository. Once that is complete, we will release a chart to ensure everything is working properly. After the release is verified, we will use Helm to clean up our cluster and remove the resources we created.

Learning Objectives

Successfully complete this lab by achieving the following learning objectives:

Install and Configure Helm

On the Kubnernetes primary server, download and install Helm from its packaged binary.

Once Helm is installed, add the bitnami repo using helm repo add bitnami and install bitnami/wordpress using helm install test bitnami/wordpress.

Create a Helm Release

Ensure Helm is working by creating a Helm release in the default namespace. The release should be named test and the WordPress should be the application that is released.

Verify the Release and Clean Up

Check the status of the release to ensure the release succeeded, then verify in kubectl that the resources were created.

Once you are satisfied that resources were created, remove the resources from the cluster. Then, confirm there are no resources present in the default namespace.

Additional Resources

You have been tasked with installing and verifying Helm in your company's Kubernetes environment. You will need to install Helm on the Kubernetes primary server instance and then ensure that it is working correctly. Once this is complete, you should return the cluster to the state it was in when you found it.

On the Kubnernetes primary server, download and install Helm from its packaged binary. Once it is installed, configure the repo and ensure it is named stable and is up-to-date.
