    This document introduces the basics of Tencent Kubernetes Engine (TKE) and answers questions you may encounter when using TKE to help you quickly get started with TKE.


    Can I use TKE in a basic network?
    No. Currently, you can use TKE in a VPC instance but not a basic network.

    Simple Trial

    • How do I use TKE?
      Create a cluster and then create a service. For more information, see Examples.

    • Can I add an existing CVM to a cluster?
      Yes. After a cluster is created, you can add existing CVMs to it.

    • Why does my service keep starting?
      If there is no process running in the container, the service may keep starting. For more information on service startup, see Event FAQs.

    • How do I access a created service?
      Different access methods have different access entries.

    • **How does a container access the public network?
      If the host where the container resides has a public IP address and public network bandwidth, the container can access the public network directly. Otherwise, a NAT gateway is required for accessing the public network.

    Service Deployment

    • How do I manage configuration files or environment variables for my services?
      You can manage configuration files by editing configuration items.

    • How do different services access one another?
      In a cluster, services with the same namespace can directly access one another, whereas services with different namespaces access one another by using <service-name>.<namespace-name>.svc.cluster.local.

    • What are the differences between ingress and "Public Network Access"?
      Ingress is a collection of rules to route external HTTP(S) traffic to services, and is not directly related to "Public Network Access".

    • Can my stateful service have a disk to rely on?
      Yes. You can mount data disks to a container by mounting CBS data volumes.

    • Will my service be interrupted when I run an update?
      No. Services can be updated in rolling update or quick update mode. Your service is not interrupted in rolling update mode.
