I'm trying to deploy a docker container to Kubernetes using YAML file (local system).

Part 1: Docker container (Working fine)

  • I am able to run the container and push into docker hub
  • Able to access container application over a browser.

Part 2: Kubernetes (Not working)

  • Wrote deployment.yaml file that includes both deployment and service
  • Deployment: It is creating pod successfully
  • Service: Added service and trying to access the application over a browser but it is not working

    Error: Site can't be reached

Docker:

  • Container pushed into docker hub
    • name: $ID/tomcat-jenkins
    • version: 3

Kubernetes:

  • deployment.yaml
    apiVersion: apps/v1 # for versions before 1.9.0 use apps/v1beta2
    kind: Deployment
    metadata:
      name: jenkins
    spec:
      selector:
        matchLabels:
          app: tomcat
      replicas: 2 # tells deployment to run 2 pods matching the template
      template:
        metadata:
          labels:
            app: tomcat
        spec:
          containers:
          - name: tomcat-jenkins
            image: $DOCKER-ID/tomcat-jenkins:3
            ports:
            - containerPort: 80
    # Service
    apiVersion: v1
    kind: Service
    metadata:
      name: jenkins
    spec:
      selector:
        app: tomcat
      ports:
      - protocol: TCP
        port: 80
        targetPort: 80
        nodePort: 31011
      type: NodePort

I am not able to access the application after deploying the container in Kubenetes pod.

I'm not sure whether my deployment.yaml file contains some syntax errors.

As you are exposing the service on NodePort , then you can access it with the http://NodeIP:NodePort` . the value of nodeport is 31011 for the above service.

Here is the a detail tutorail which explain exposing the service on k8s.

ClusterIP (default) - Exposes the Service on an internal IP in the cluster. This type makes the Service only reachable from within the cluster.

NodePort - Exposes the Service on the same port of each selected Node in the cluster using NAT. Makes a Service accessible from outside the cluster using :. Superset of ClusterIP.

LoadBalancer - Creates an external load balancer in the current cloud (if supported) and assigns a fixed, external IP to the Service. Superset of NodePort
