k3s on Raspberry Pi: Private Docker

6 Feb 2020 17:52 k3s raspberry-pi docker

In order to run our own apps on the cluster, we’re going to need a private docker repository.

Install docker

curl -sSL get.docker.com | sh
sudo usermod -aG docker pi

Log out and log back in to reload your group memberships.

docker run hello-world

Create a self-signed server cert

I couldn’t figure out how to get containerd to use HTTP when talking to the private docker repository, so I created a self-signed server certificate instead.

openssl req -newkey rsa:4096 \
    -nodes -sha256 \
    -keyout rpi201.key \
    -x509 -days 365 -out rpi201.crt \
    -subj "/C=GB/L=Location/O=Org Name/CN=rpi201"

Run the private repo container

docker run \
    -d -p 5000:5000 \
    --restart=always \
    --name registry \
    -v "$(pwd)":/certs \
    -e REGISTRY_HTTP_TLS_CERTIFICATE=/certs/rpi201.crt \
    -e REGISTRY_HTTP_TLS_KEY=/certs/rpi201.key \

Install the cert as trusted

On each node:

sudo cp rpi201.crt /usr/local/share/ca-certificates/
sudo update-ca-certificates

In order to persuade containerd to trust the certificate, you’ll need to restart it. You might as well reboot the node:

sudo shutdown -r now
