Creating a Service and Discovering DNS Names in Kubernetes
In this hands-on lab, you will be presented with a three-node cluster. You will be creating a simple nginx deployment, in which you must create a service from that deployment. In order to accomplish this, you will use the kubectl command line to create the deployment. Then, you will expose the deployment to create the service. When you have verified the service is up and running, you will create a busybox pod to test the DNS resolution to that service.

Create a service, and verify the service was successful.
Use this command to create a service:

Create a pod that will allow you to query DNS, and verify it’s been created.
Use the following YAML to create the busybox pod spec:
apiVersion: v1 kind: Pod metadata: name: busybox spec: containers: - image: busybox:1.28.4 command: - sleep - "3600" name: busybox restartPolicy: Always
Use the following command to create the busybox pod:
kubectl create -f busybox.yaml
Use the following command to verify the pod was created successfully:
kubectl get pods
Perform a DNS query to the service.
Use the following command to query the DNS name of the nginx service:
kubectl exec busybox -- nslookup nginx
Record the DNS name.
