Master and Nodes on minikube

#1

Cluster information:

Kubernetes version: v1.14.1
Cloud being used: bare-metal
Installation method: Minikube installation
Host OS: CentOS 7

Hi everyone,

For testing and learning, I’ve installed the kubernetes ‘minikube’ version on virt and the start was successfully too.

I’ve one node and I think it is correct for this installation:
$ kubectl get nodes
NAME STATUS ROLES AGE VERSION
minikube Ready master 147m v1.14.0

For my learning path I’d like to have the master and two nodes configured. I’ve read some documentations but I didn’t find it.
Please let me know if it is possible to have 1 master and 2 nodes on the minikube version on 1 VM?

Thanks in advance and regards,
H

Minikube itself does not support that. If you want to experiment with multi-node in a fast iterable fashion, check out the KinD project.

What’s the KinD project? Sorry for my ignorance, but can you tell me more about it?
Thanks a lot…

Derp, I posted it with a broken link (fixed). It’s this: https://kind.sigs.k8s.io

It lets you run a multi-node cluster inside containers. It does have limitations, but is useful for quickly iterating on things.
