Configuring Storage Classes in Azure

If you are using Azure VMs for your nodes, you can use Azure files as a StorageClass for the cluster.

In order to have the Azure platform create the required storage resources, follow these steps:

  1. Configure the Azure cloud provider.

  2. Configure kubectl to connect to your cluster.

  3. Copy the ClusterRole and ClusterRoleBinding manifest for the service account:

    ---
    apiVersion: rbac.authorization.k8s.io/v1
    kind: ClusterRole
    metadata:
    name: system:azure-cloud-provider
    rules:
    - apiGroups: ['']
    resources: ['secrets']
    verbs: ['get','create']
    ---
    apiVersion: rbac.authorization.k8s.io/v1
    kind: ClusterRoleBinding
    metadata:
    name: system:azure-cloud-provider
    roleRef:
    kind: ClusterRole
    apiGroup: rbac.authorization.k8s.io
    name: system:azure-cloud-provider
    subjects:
    - kind: ServiceAccount
    name: persistent-volume-binder
    namespace: kube-system
  4. Create these in your cluster using one of the follow command.

    # kubectl create -f <MANIFEST>
