Setting Up the Training Platform

During the training, it is recommended to use the provided platform. This section describes how to reproduce it after the training to replay the labs.


Local Machine Configuration

  • Fedora is recommended
  • 8 cores, 16 GB of RAM, 30 GB for the partition hosting Docker entities (images, volumes, containers, etc). Use the df command as shown below to find its size.
sudo df -sh /var/lib/docker # or /var/snap/docker/common/var-lib-docker/
  • Internet access without proxy
  • sudo access
  • Install the dependencies below:
sudo dnf install curl docker git vim bash-completion

# then add the current user to the docker group
sudo usermod -a -G docker $USER
# or restart the gnome session
newgrp docker

Then, you can create the Kubernetes cluster in two lines by following the ktbx documentation.

Creating an OpenShift Cluster with OpenShift Local

For creating an OpenShift cluster using openshift-local, follow these steps:

  1. Clone the k8s-server repository:
git clone
cd k8s-server/bootstrap/fedora
  1. Run the setup script to install OpenShift Local:
  1. Start the OpenShift cluster:

These scripts will handle the installation and startup of your OpenShift cluster, providing a local environment for practicing with OpenShift.
