Perform these steps to prepare your Kubernetes cluster to run a WebLogic domain:
Create the domain namespace(s). One or more domains can share a namespace. A single instance of the operator can manage multiple namespaces.
$ kubectl create namespace domain-namespace-1
domain-namespace-1 with name you want to use. The name must follow standard Kubernetes naming conventions, that is, lower case,
numbers, and hyphens.
Create a Kubernetes secret containing the Administration Server boot credentials. You can do this manually or by using the provided sample. To create the secret manually, use this command:
$ kubectl -n domain-namespace-1 \ create secret generic domain1-weblogic-credentials \ --from-literal=username=username \ --from-literal=password=password
domain-namespace-1with the namespace that the domain will be in.
domain1-weblogic-credentialswith the name of the secret. The operator expects the secret name to be the
domainUIDfollowed by the literal string
-weblogic-credentialsand many of the samples assume this name.
usernamein the third line with the user name for the administrative user.
passwordin the fourth line with the password.
Optionally, create a PV & persistent volume claim (PVC) which can hold the domain home, logs, and application binaries. Even if you put your domain in a Docker image, you may want to put the logs on a persistent volume so that they are available after the pods terminate. This may be instead of, or as well as, other approaches like streaming logs into Elasticsearch.
Optionally, configure load balancer(s) to manage access to any WebLogic clusters.
