Prepare the cluster

First we need to prepare the cluster.


minikube start --cpus 4 --memory 16384 --disk-size 20gb --addons ingress

Once the cluster is up and running, you need the start the load balancer tunnel in a new terminal, as this command must be running until you shut down your cluster, or the tunnel.

minikube tunnel


Creating a new cluster with Kind only requires to execute the following command:

kind create cluster


For any other cluster:

  • You need to have a working context for kubectl (e.g. oc login).

  • You will need to be able to create new namespaces, being admin helps.

  • You need some kind of LoadBalancer support. For OpenShift, you can use Routes.

  • You must have PersistentVolumes available to bind to.
