  • (Longhorn/K3s) Failed cluster, made new cluster, are PVs salvageable?
    2 projects | /r/kubernetes | 27 Mar 2023
    I recently broke my cluster somehow (see this thread) so I decided to start fresh because I can't get K3s up and running again. I now have 5 nodes (3 master, 2 worker) with etcd configured using the K3s-ansible guide found here. Is it possible to recover the PVs from my failed cluster? I still have SSH access to each of the machines that participated in the cluster. It would save me a lot of rebuilding time if I could extract them (even from an older backup, if Longhorn stores them in an accessible format) and apply to the new cluster.
  • Kubernetes (k3s) Tutoring/Instructor

    I'm having a hard time understanding how to setup the network/cluster for HA. I've basically been following along with this guide: https://docs.technotim.live/posts/k3s-etcd-ansible/ which uses MetalLB + kube-vip. I have the cluster running and have the MetalLB IP range set for a block of internal LAN IPs / Layer 2 (unsure if this is correct for what I'm looking to do). All of this seems to be working internally. My confusion is how to get WAN traffic in.
  • LXC Containers... but why?
    2 projects | /r/Proxmox | 12 Feb 2023
    I’m Nomsplease on GitHub, and I’m currently running the latest Proxmox 7.x with the opt-in kernel 6.X. https://github.com/techno-tim/k3s-ansible
    2 projects | /r/Proxmox | 12 Feb 2023
    Next, in my efforts to learn Kubernetes, I wanted to start up a cluster based on this youtube using Ansible. Works great when my guests are full VM's, but fail when using LXC containers. I don't remember the specific error right now, but there as recently another thread that caught my eye on a similar topic.

    For the Ansible part, have a look at techno-tim/k3s-ansible for a basic k3s (not the full thing) with MetalLB ansible setup. There's also the original one (based on Traefik): k3s-io/k3s-ansible. Modfiy hosts and vars accordingly to your needs. Run your terraform plan, then run the ansible playbook once you've modified the vars accordingly. They're good starters, but for a full blown k8s ansible recipe, I'll be able to help you when I come back from holidays :) (16th of August).
