Azure Container Service Engine (aka ACS-Engine)
Just a quick update this week. I have been working on a project where we are going to migrate Kubernetes to Azure, we really wanted to offload the management using AKS, which is Kubernetes as a Service on Azure, but unfortunately at the time of writing (Mar 18) we are not able to provision AKS into a custom VNET. At this time, AKS creates it own VNET using
10.0.0.0\8, which isn’t great at this overlaps with the migration network.
Provisioning Azure Container Service via the portal also has the same limitation so I needed something else. Luckily the container folks @ Microsoft have created the ACS-Engine, which is an open source project that creates ARM templates to deploy different orchestrators to Azure.
I experimented with a number of options, but the below gist was the end result. Make sure you know the different network policies and also the CIDR mappings for the K8s networks. There is a section in the docs that state the VNET must be in the same Resource Group as the ACS cluster. We did look at a “workaround” this but ended up giving the ACS Service Principal
Owner rights on the subscription, which is not something I would let go into production!!
