Setting up Bare Metal Instances 

if you wish to create Bare Metal Ubuntu Instances , please refer this link

How to Create Oracle Bare metal Compute Instance [Oracle Cloud Infrastructure]

Install Kubernetes and setup using Kubernetes Admin ( Kubeadm )

SSH to Master Machine Ubuntu 16.04 as user ubuntu , using Putty

Note : I had challenges connecting SSH from my Linux Machine , Used Windows Putty it connected like a cake, in Putty you would need to Rlogin set username as ubuntu and go to SSH/Auth/ and select privatekey.ppk

Update Ubuntu 16.04

sudo su

sudo apt-get update

# sudo apt-get install -y socat apt-transport-https
# curl -s -L \ | tar xJv
# sudo dpkg -i kubernetes-xenial-preview-bundle/*.deb

Refer installation Link :
