# Initialize
$> gcloud init
Welcome! This command will take you through the configuration of gcloud.

Your current configuration has been set to: [default]

You can skip diagnostics next time by using the following flag:
  gcloud init --skip-diagnostics

Network diagnostic detects and fixes local network connection issues.
Checking network connection...done.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     
Reachability Check passed.
Network diagnostic passed (1/1 checks passed).

Pick cloud project to use: 
 [1] kinetic-physics-111111
 [2] Create a new project
Please enter numeric choice or text value (must exactly match list 
item):  1

Your current project has been set to: [kinetic-physics-293121].

Not setting default zone/region (this feature makes it easier to use
[gcloud compute] by setting an appropriate default value for the
--zone and --region flag).
See section on how to set
default compute region and zone manually. If you would like [gcloud init] to be
able to do this for you the next time you run it, make sure the
Compute Engine API is enabled for your project on the page.

Created a default .boto configuration file at [/home/vagrant/.boto]. See this file and
[] for more
information about configuring Google Cloud Storage.
Your Google Cloud SDK is configured and ready to use!

* Commands that require authentication will use by default
* Commands will reference project `kinetic-physics-293121` by default
Run `gcloud help config` to learn how to change individual settings

This gcloud configuration is called [default]. You can create additional configurations if you work with multiple accounts and/or projects.
Run `gcloud topic configurations` to learn more.

Some things to try next:

* Run `gcloud --help` to see the Cloud Platform services you can interact with. And run `gcloud help COMMAND` to get help on any gcloud command.
* Run `gcloud topic --help` to learn about advanced features of the SDK like arg files and output formatting

Set defaults

# Set project default Compute Engine zone, [17] europe-west1-b
$> gcloud config set compute/zone europe-west1-b

# Set project default Compute Engine region
$> gcloud config set compute/region europe-west1

Install kubectl from Google

$> gcloud components install kubectl
ERROR: (gcloud.components.install) 
You cannot perform this action because the Cloud SDK component manager 
is disabled for this installation. You can run the following command 
to achieve the same result for this installation: 

sudo apt-get install kubectl


# List accounts whose credentials are stored on the local system:
gcloud auth list
       Credentialed Accounts
ACTIVE             ACCOUNT

# List the properties in your active SDK configuration:
gcloud config list
account =
disable_usage_reporting = False
project = responsive-sun-123456

# List multiple so called 'named configurations' 
gcloud config configurations list
default  True   responsive-sun-123456  europe-west1-b  europe-west1

# View information about your Cloud SDK installation and the active SDK configuration:

# Verify gcloud project context
$ gcloud info | grep '\(Google\|Account\|Project\)'

Create cluster

Note: Do not enable cluster-autoscaler --enable-autoscaling option if you plan to size to zero

Note: GCP GKE release versions

gcloud services enable

gcloud container clusters describe $CLUSTER_NAME || gcloud container clusters create $CLUSTER_NAME \
  --release-channel $CLUSTER_RELEASE_CHANNEL \

  --max-nodes 6 \
  --enable-autoscaling \
  --enable-network-policy \
  --preemptible \
  --no-enable-autoupgrade \
# --cluster-version=$CLUSTER_VERSION
# --preemptible        # aka as spot instances, much cheaper but can be terminated at any time
# --enable-autoupgrade # this is a default now 2020-11

# Optional. Create your specific 'cluster-admin' user
kubectl get    clusterrolebinding $(gcloud config get-value core/account)-cluster-admin ||
kubectl create clusterrolebinding $(gcloud config get-value core/account)-cluster-admin \
--clusterrole=cluster-admin \
--user="$(gcloud config get-value core/account)"

gcloud container clusters resize $CLUSTER_NAME --num-nodes 0 # --node-pool $NODE_POOL_NAME can be skipped of only it's one

Update cluster setting

Network policy enforce, will cause rolling nodes update,

gcloud container clusters update istio2 --no-enable-network-policy
gcloud container clusters update istio2 --no-enable-stackdriver-kubernetes # default: no-enabled

List available K8s versions for GKE
