Raspberry Pi Kubernetes Cluster - Part 2
Alright, my 8 port switch showed up so I was able to connect my raspberry 3B+ boards to my home network. I plugged it in with 6 1ft CAT5 cables I had in my catch-all box that all of us nerds have. I’d highly suggest flexible CAT 6 cables instead if you can get them, like here. I ordered them and they showed up before I finished this post, so I am using the CAT6 cables.
The IP addresses they will receive initialy from my home router via DHCP can be determined with nmap. Lets imagine my subnet is 192.168.1.0/24.
Once I got them on the network I did the following:
Install Raspberrian OS On SD Cards
You can get the Raspberry Pi Stretch Lite OS from here.
Then use the Etcher tool to install it to each of the 6 SD cards.
Before putting the cards into the Raspberry Pis you need to add a
ssh folder to the root of the SD cards. This will allow you to ssh to each Raspberry Pi with default credentials (username:
pi and password
ssh pi@raspberry_pi_ip where
raspberry_pi_ip is obtained from the nmap command above.
Next post will be setting up kubernetes. Thank you for reading.
