KTHW - Load balance requests to controller nodes

July 26, 2020 - Reading time: ~1 minute

The loadbalancer will be use to access both controllers from a single point. In this example we'll use nginx with a stream load balancer for port 443 and 6443

sudo apt-get install -y nginx
sudo systemctl enable nginx
sudo mkdir -p /etc/nginx/tcpconf.d
sudo vi /etc/nginx/nginx.conf
## Add the line: 
## include /etc/nginx/tcpconf.d/*;
## create the kubernetes config: 
cloud_user@kubelb:~$ cat /etc/nginx/tcpconf.d/kubernetes.conf
stream {
    upstream kubernetes {

    server {
        listen 6443;
        listen 443;
        proxy_pass kubernetes;
sudo nginx -s reload
