Avoid deploying a Load Balancer Service on unsupported cloud providers

Some infrastructure providers do not support Service of type: LoadBalancer, e.g. because the load-balancers don't integrate with Kubernetes. In such cases your administrator may deploy a policy to prevent such Services from being deployed.

When attempting to apply a Service with type: LoadBalancer anyway, the following error message would be returned:

Creation of LoadBalancer Service is not supported. Contact your platform administrator for questions about Load Balancers.

apiVersion: v1
kind: Service
  name: my-service
  selector: MyApp
  type: LoadBalancer
    - protocol: TCP
      port: 80
      targetPort: 9376

How to solve:

Consult your platform documentation for how to handle load balancing.
