Adding nameservers to kubernetes

0 votes

I'm using Kubernetes v1.0.6 on AWS that has been deployed using
Cluster is using kube-dns.

$ kubectl get svc kube-dns --namespace=kube-system
NAME       LABELS                                                                           SELECTOR           IP(S)       PORT(S)
kube-dns   k8s-app=kube-dns,,   k8s-app=kube-dns   53/UDP

Which works fine.

$ kubectl exec busybox -- nslookup kubernetes.default
Address 1:
Name:      kubernetes.default
Address 1:

This is the resolv.conf of a pod.

$ kubectl exec busybox -- cat /etc/resolv.conf
search default.svc.cluster.local svc.cluster.local cluster.local eu-west-1.compute.internal

Is it possible to have the containers use an additional nameserver?

I would like my kubernetes containers to be able to use for dns resolution.

A safe way to maybe do this would be adding the nameserver in skydns' configuration.

For those usign Kubernetes kube-dns, flag -nameservers nor environment variable SKYDNS_NAMESERVERS are no longer avaiable.

Usage of /kube-dns:
  --alsologtostderr                  log to standard error as well as files
  --config-map string                config-map name. If empty, then the config-map will not used. Cannot be  used in conjunction with federations flag. config-map contains dynamically adjustable configuration.
  --config-map-namespace string      namespace for the config-map (default "kube-system")
  --dns-bind-address string          address on which to serve DNS requests. (default "")
  --dns-port int                     port on which to serve DNS requests. (default 53)
  --domain string                    domain under which to create names (default "cluster.local.")
  --healthz-port int                 port on which to serve a kube-dns HTTP readiness probe. (default 8081)
  --kube-master-url string           URL to reach kubernetes master. Env variables in this flag will be expanded.
  --kubecfg-file string              Location of kubecfg file for access to kubernetes master service; --kube-master-url overrides the URL part of this; if neither this nor --kube-master-url are provided, defaults to service account tokens
  --log-backtrace-at traceLocation   when logging hits line file:N, emit a stack trace (default :0)
  --log-dir string                   If non-empty, write log files in this directory
  --log-flush-frequency duration     Maximum number of seconds between log flushes (default 5s)
  --logtostderr                      log to standard error instead of files (default true)
  --stderrthreshold severity         logs at or above this threshold go to stderr (default 2)
  -v, --v Level                      log level for V logs
  --version version[=true]           Print version information and quit
  --vmodule moduleSpec               comma-separated list of pattern=N settings for file-filtered logging

Now, either you put your name servers on the hosts resolv.conf, so DNS is inherited from the node, or you use custom resolv.conf and add it to Kubelet with the flag --resolv-conf
