Before you begin using the Kommander UI, you must:
Install the DKP binary before executing any
dkpcommands. Ensure you have the version of the CLI that matches the DKP version you want to install.
Configure a Konvoy cluster using the Advanced Konvoy Configuration for instructions infrastructure provider specific instructions on building a cluster based on environment.
Review the Management Cluster Application Requirements and Workspace Platform Application Defaults and Resource Requirements to ensure that your cluster has sufficient resources.
To ensure the Git repository that Kommander ships with deploys successfully, the cluster where Kommander is installed must have a default
StorageClass configured. Run the following command:
kubectl get sc
The output should look similar to this. Note the
(default) after the name:
NAME PROVISIONER RECLAIMPOLICY VOLUMEBINDINGMODE ALLOWVOLUMEEXPANSION AGE ebs-sc (default) ebs.csi.aws.com Delete WaitForFirstConsumer false 41s
StorageClass is not set as default, add the following annotation to the
annotations: storageclass.kubernetes.io/is-default-class: "true"
More information on setting a StorageClass as default can be found at Changing the default storage class in k8s docs.
Install Kommander on Konvoy
To customize a Kommander installation, see the Kommander Install Configuration for more details.
Before running the commands below, ensure that your
kubectl configuration references the cluster on which you want to install Kommander, otherwise it will install on the bootstrap cluster. You can do this by setting the
KUBECONFIG environment variable to the appropriate kubeconfig file’s location.
NOTE: An alternative to initializing the KUBECONFIG environment variable as stated earlier is to use the
--kubeconfig=cluster_name.conf flag. This ensures that Kommander is installed on the workload cluster.
Begin with this command:
dkp install kommander
Once the Konvoy cluster is built and Kommander has been installed, you will want to verify your installation of Kommander in that section of documentation.
For other environments, see the section of documentation called Advanced Kommander Configuration.
