Jupyterhub in kubeadm cluster

Issues and Solutions

Issue #1: hub service is pending

Reason: the persistanceVolumeClaim cannot claim the volume.

Solution: create a persistentVolume name hub-db-dir before running the helm command.

Issue #2: hub service stucks at ContainerCreating

Reason: permissions denied on writing to mount volume, by default when create the hostpath, kubernetes will add the user and group as root.
