Snippet-Install Openshift Origin on a centos/rht machine

06 May 2019

This is a snippet that i use when i have to install a test instance of Openshift.

Someone could argues that this is the wrong way to install a test instance of Openshift because of minishift but i hate it!!

The reason is that i usually have a dedicated machine to install to so here is the snippet:


# Install required packages and repos
sudo -i
yum -y update
yum -y install -y yum-utils device-mapper-persistent-data lvm2 wget
yum-config-manager --add-repo https://download.docker.com/linux/centos/docker-ce.repo
yum -y install docker-ce docker-ce-cli containerd.io
systemctl enable docker
systemctl start docker
usermod -aG docker centos
# Download and install Openshift Origin
wget https://github.com/openshift/origin/releases/download/v3.11.0/openshift-origin-client-tools-v3.11.0-0cbc58b-linux-64bit.tar.gz
tar xvfz openshift-origin-client-tools-v3.11.0-0cbc58b-linux-64bit.tar.gz
cd openshift-origin-client-tools-v3.11.0-0cbc58b-linux-64bit
# make `oc` and `kubectl` available system wide 
sudo cp oc /bin/
sudo cp kubectl /bin/
# Add an entry for the openshift network
sudo -i
touch /etc/docker/daemon.json
echo "
   \"insecure-registries\": [
" > /etc/docker/daemon.json
# Reload docker service
systemctl daemon-reload
systemctl restart docker
# Add firewall rules
firewall-cmd --permanent --new-zone dockerc
firewall-cmd --permanent --zone dockerc --add-source
firewall-cmd --permanent --zone dockerc --add-port 8443/tcp
firewall-cmd --permanent --zone dockerc --add-port 53/udp
firewall-cmd --permanent --zone dockerc --add-port 8053/udp
firewall-cmd --permanent --add-port=8443/tcp
firewall-cmd --permanent --add-port=443/tcp
firewall-cmd --reload
# Start Openshift cluster
# pass --base-dir as argument so i can delete everything when finished
oc cluster up --public-hostname=[your IP] --base-dir=/home/${USER}/oc/config_dir/
