IBM Cloud

  1. Create a Kubernetes cluster using the wizard on the IBM Cloud platform. When it's running, follow the instructions for operating with the cluster on your local command line:

     curl -sL https://ibm.biz/idt-installer | bash
     ibmcloud login -a https://api.eu-gb.bluemix.net
     ibmcloud cs region-set uk-south
     ibmcloud cs cluster-config diffblue
     export KUBECONFIG=~/.bluemix/plugins/container-service/clusters/diffblue/kube-config-lon02-diffblue.yml
    
  2. Create a registry to push the Diffblue Cover images to:

     ibmcloud plugin install container-registry -r Bluemix
     ibmcloud login -a https://api.eu-gb.bluemix.net
     ibmcloud cr namespace-add <my_namespace>
     ibmcloud cr login
    
  3. Set the repoName environment variable to point to your registry and namespace:

     export REPO_NAME=registry.eu-gb.bluemix.net/diffblue-cr
    

Known issues

ImagePullError

If you see errors pulling images from the repository this tends to mean the registry is in a different zone. By default, registries are open to nodes inside the same zone. If they are different, you can add a token like this:

ibmcloud cr token-add --description "Registry token" --non-expiring --readwrite
kubectl --namespace diffblue create secret docker-registry registry-token --docker-server=registry.eu-de.bluemix.net --docker-username=token --docker-password=<token from first step> --docker-email=a@b.com

Ensure that the token is replaced as well as the correct registry server. Then add these lines to the spec sections of the deeptest-worker, keymaker, and front-end deployment YAMLs and the application-server stateful set YAML:

spec:
imagePullSecrets:
- name: registry-token

Then reapply these YAMLs.

Mongo CrashLoopBackoff

In some cases Mongo can fail to start in the initial interval timeframe set in the manifest YAML files. This seems to be an issue with IBM Cloud only, and how volumes take some time to start. The solution is to increase the initialDelaySeconds: 30 value to around 100 seconds in both the liveness and readiness checks.

Now return to the main cloud deployment page and follow the instructions to deploy Diffblue Cover to the cluster.
