Time to lab

Excellent piece! . Anthony installed the external snapshoter which I know confuses people sometimes when they suppose that it is part of the core api. A lot of distributions will take care of installing those for you. By the way if json is intimidating to you, the dashboard password you can also get by doing. 

kubectl -n rook-ceph get secret rook-ceph-dashboard-password -oyaml

This will bring up the yaml where the base64 encoded password is 

 

The do a:

echo fktWJFRRPWRWfW02IVNBJihuKDM= | base64 -d

So many things to try in lab 😎

I have to ask for a time off to do this all 😀

This is the part that stumped me for almost ever with Kubernetes setups… and only really clicked in the last couple of weeks. Think I even mention that in the YouTube walkthrough… I wish that this finds it’s way into some of the managed Kubernetes platforms I use like Platform9, Jelastic and Rafay.
