K8s Helm Setup

Enable Helm in cluster

  • Create a Service Account tiller for the Tiller server (in the kube-system namespace). Service Accounts are meant for intra-cluster processes running in Pods.

  • Bind the cluster-admin ClusterRole to this Service Account. ClusterRoleBindings to be applicable in all namespaces. Tiller to manage resources in all namespaces.

  • Update the existing Tiller deployment (tiller-deploy) to associate its pod with the Service Account tiller.

    kubectl create serviceaccount tiller --namespace kube-system
    kubectl create clusterrolebinding tiller-cluster-rule --clusterrole=cluster-admin --serviceaccount=kube-system:tiller
    kubectl patch deploy --namespace kube-system tiller-deploy -p '{"spec":{"template":{"spec":{"serviceAccount":"tiller"}}}}'
    

    or ``` cat tiller-clusterrolebinding.yaml kind: ClusterRoleBinding apiVersion: rbac.authorization.K8S.io/v1beta1 metadata: name: tiller-clusterrolebinding subjects:

  • kind: ServiceAccount name: tiller namespace: kube-system roleRef: kind: ClusterRole name: cluster-admin apiGroup: “”

docker pull registry.cn-beijing.aliyuncs.com/k4s/tiller:v2.12.3

kubectl create -f tiller-clusterrolebinding.yaml

Update the existing tiller-deploy deployment with the Service Account

helm init –service-account tiller –upgrade ```
