KubeVirt Demo

Step 1 of 2

Launch cluster and deploy KubeVirt

Wait for the cluster to be ready

Before we can startm, we need to wait for the Kubernetes cluster to be ready


Now we are ready to continue.

Deploy KubeVirt

Provide some initial configuration

kubectl create configmap -n kube-system kubevirt-config --from-literal debug.useEmulation=true

And finally deploy KubeVirt

kubectl apply -f https://github.com/kubevirt/kubevirt/releases/download/v0.10.0/kubevirt.yaml

Now let's wait until the API server is ready: kubectl wait -n kube-system --for condition=ready --timeout=120s pod -l kubevirt.io=virt-api

virtctl is a client utility to provide some more convenient ways to interact with the VM:

curl -L -o virtctl https://github.com/kubevirt/kubevirt/releases/download/v0.10.0/virtctl-v0.10.0-linux-amd64

chmod +x virtctl

Now everything is ready to continue and launch a VM.
