1. Deploy the ipmitool helm chart on Azure Managed Openshift Service


    Deploying an ipmitool Helm chart on Azure Managed OpenShift service involves setting up an Azure Red Hat OpenShift (ARO) cluster, acquiring the Helm chart for ipmitool, and deploying it onto the cluster.

    Here's a step-by-step guide on how this can be implemented using Pulumi with TypeScript:


    1. Pulumi CLI installed and configured with Azure provider.
    2. An existing Azure Active Directory application with a Service Principal for authenticating with Azure.
    3. kubectl and Helm CLI installed for deploying and managing the Helm chart.

    Step 1: Define the Azure Red Hat OpenShift cluster

    First, you'll need to set up the ARO cluster. Here, one would typically use the azure-native.redhatopenshift.OpenShiftCluster resource. You will need to provide it with several mandatory properties such as the location, resource group name, and cluster profile information including the OpenShift version.

    Step 2: Install the ipmitool Helm Chart

    Once the cluster is running, you can use the kubernetes.helm.v3.Chart resource from the Kubernetes provider to install the ipmitool Helm chart. This is assuming that there exists a Helm chart for ipmitool. If one doesn't exist, then you would have to create one or find an alternative tool that meets your needs. For this example, we will assume that such a chart exists and is hosted in a reachable Helm repository.

    Let's go through the Pulumi program that accomplishes both steps:

    import * as pulumi from "@pulumi/pulumi"; import * as azure from "@pulumi/azure-native"; // Define the resource group where all the resources will live const resourceGroup = new azure.resources.ResourceGroup("exampleResourceGroup"); // Define the Azure Red Hat OpenShift cluster const openshiftCluster = new azure.redhatopenshift.OpenShiftCluster("exampleAROCluster", { resourceGroupName: resourceGroup.name, location: pulumi.getConfig("location"), // Example: "eastus" clusterProfile: { pulSecret: pulumi.getConfig("pullSecret"), domain: "exampleDomain", version: "4.7", // specify your OpenShift version }, masterProfile: { vmSize: "Standard_D8s_v3", subnetId: pulumi.interpolate`${yourVirtualNetworkSubnetId}`, }, workerProfiles: [{ name: "worker", vmSize: "Standard_D4s_v3", diskSizeGB: 128, subnetId: pulumi.interpolate`${yourVirtualNetworkSubnetId}`, count: 3, }], servicePrincipalProfile: { clientId: pulumi.getConfig("aadClientId"), clientSecret: pulumi.getConfig("aadClientSecret"), }, networkProfile: { podCidr: "", serviceCidr: "", }, }); // Install the `ipmitool` Helm chart on the ARO cluster import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; const chart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("ipmitool-chart", { chart: "ipmitool", version: "1.2.3", // specify the version of the chart fetchOpts: { repo: "https://charts.yourhelmrepo.com/", // specify the Helm chart repository URL }, }, { provider: k8sProvider }); // Export the OpenShift cluster's API server URL export const openshiftApiServerUrl = openshiftCluster.clusterProfile.domain;


    • The above program initializes a new Azure resource group to hold our resources.
    • It then defines a new OpenShiftCluster using azure.redhatopenshift.OpenShiftCluster with a set of minimum required configurations such as the domain and network profiles.
    • In the workerProfiles, you'd adjust the VM size, number of nodes, disk size, and their subnet IDs according to your resource and performance needs.
    • The servicePrincipalProfile contains credentials that the ARO cluster will use to integrate with other Azure services.
    • Once the cluster is ready, we create a new instance of k8s.helm.v3.Chart to deploy the ipmitool Helm chart onto the cluster. The chart's version and repository URL should be specified.
    • The provider k8sProvider should be an instance of the Kubernetes provider that's configured to target the newly created ARO cluster. This isn't shown in the above code and would typically involve retrieving the cluster's kubeconfig file.
    • We finally export the API server URL, which would be used to interact with the OpenShift cluster.

    Please note that in a real-world scenario, you would need to replace placeholder values with actual configuration details like yourVirtualNetworkSubnetId, the Helm chart's version, and the repository URL. The service principal's clientId and clientSecret, the domain for the OpenShift cluster, and the cluster's pullSecret should be acquired from your Azure account and securely managed.

    This example may require advanced permissions and configurations that are not covered fully here due to complexity. Be sure to review the Azure and OpenShift documentation for detailed setup requirements.
