OpenShift Origin (OKD) 3.10 : Allow External Access
2018/08/22
 
Allow Accesses to Applications in Openshift Cluster from the External Network.
This example is based on the environment like follows.
-----------+-----------------------------------------------------------+------------
           |10.0.0.25                    |10.0.0.51                    |10.0.0.52
+----------+-----------+      +----------+-----------+      +----------+-----------+
|  [ ctrl.srv.world ]  |      | [ node01.srv.world ] |      | [ node02.srv.world ] |
|     (Master Node)    |      |    (Compute Node)    |      |    (Compute Node)    |
|     (Infra Node)     |      |                      |      |                      |
|     (Compute Node)   |      |                      |      |                      |

    Node.js 8
    ---------
    Node.js 8 available as container is a base platform for building and running various Node.js 8 applications and frameworks. Node.js is a platform built on Chrome's JavaScript runtime for easily building fast, scalable network applications. Node.js uses an event-driven, non-blocking I/O model that makes it lightweight and efficient, perfect for data-intensive real-time applications that run across distributed devices.

    Tags: builder, nodejs, nodejs8

    * The source repository appears to match: nodejs
    * A source build using source code from https://github.com/openshift/nodejs-ex will be created
      * The resulting image will be pushed to image stream "nodejs-ex:latest"
      * Use 'start-build' to trigger a new build
    * This image will be deployed in deployment config "nodejs-ex"
    * Port 8080/tcp will be load balanced by service "nodejs-ex"
      * Other containers can access this service through the hostname "nodejs-ex"

--> Creating resources ...
    imagestream "nodejs-ex" created

--> Success
    Build scheduled, use 'oc logs -f bc/nodejs-ex' to track its progress.
    Application is not exposed. You can expose services to the outside world by executing one or more of the commands below:
     'oc expose svc/nodejs-ex'
    Run 'oc status' to view your app.

# few minutes later, deploy has finished and Pod becomes running state

[cent@ctrl ~]$
oc get pods

[4] Access to the access-path from any Clients in external network which the Clients can resolve access-path with DNS name to make sure the application responds.
[5]
For DNS name resolution for many applications in Openshift Cluster,
it's useful if you can add waildcard entry in DNS System like BIND or Dnsmasq.
On this example, Openshift default subdomain setting is [apps.srv.world] like the initial setting, and also we added DNS entry in BIND like follows. Then, it's possible to resolve hostname if any name are added on the head of the subdomain [apps.srv.world].
[root@dns ~]#
cat /var/named/srv.world.lan
