Test the Cluster

Test the cluster:

Confirm your nodes:

kubectl get nodes # if we see our 3 nodes, we know we have authenticated correctly

Export the Worker Role Name for use throughout the workshop:

STACK_NAME=$(eksctl get nodegroup --cluster eksworkshop-eksctl -o json | jq -r '.[].StackName')
ROLE_NAME=$(aws cloudformation describe-stack-resources --stack-name $STACK_NAME | jq -r '.StackResources[] | select(.ResourceType=="AWS::IAM::Role") | .PhysicalResourceId')
echo "export ROLE_NAME=${ROLE_NAME}" | tee -a ~/.bash_profile


You now have a fully working Amazon EKS Cluster that is ready to use!
