About this Hands-on Lab

This lab guides students through the creation of a cluster using `kops`, then upgrading the Kubernetes version by editing the cluster configuration and performing a rolling update. This terminates and then re-instantiates the master node and each of the worker nodes.

Learning Objectives

Successfully complete this lab by achieving the following learning objectives:

Create the Cluster

Use the script provided on the bastion host to create and validate a cluster.

Update the Kubernetes Version

Use the kops edit cluster command to edit the cluster configuration file and update the Kubernetes version as needed. Then, update the cluster and run the rolling update.

You can watch the cluster update from the AWS console as it terminates and re-instantiates nodes.
