Here's my thought on 💭 Quick-Start Guide | K3s

I recently spun up k3s in my homelab. I'm trying to offload some work off of my free tier fly.io app in order to keep it free tier without crashing.

# install and start k3s
curl -sfL https://get.k3s.io | sh -
# check to see if your nodes are started
sudo kubectl get nodes

My main hiccup so far was the machine I am running on runs zfs on root, and it would not start the master node. Rather than figuring out how to make zfs play nice I just pointed k3s to a drive that is not zfs.

# manuallly
sudo k3s server -d /mnt/vault/.rancher/k3s
# without editing systemd service
sudo ln -s /mnt/vault/.rancher/k3s /var/lib/rancher/k3s
