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.
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
kops edit clustercommand 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.
