Create a Kubernetes cluster on pre-provisioned infrastructure

The following procedure describes creating a Konvoy cluster on a pre-provisioned infrastructure using SSH.

First you will use Konvoy Image Builder to ensure that the correct versions of kubeadm, kubelet, and containerd are installed with their relevant configurations to enable Konvoy to run on your infrastructure. Then you use dkp CLI to create a Konvoy cluster on your infrastructure.

Completing this procedure results in a Kubernetes cluster, including a Container Networking Interface (CNI) and a Local Persistence Volume Static Provisioner, that is ready for workload deployment.

Before moving to a production environment, you may want to add applications for logging and monitoring, storage, security, and other functions. You can use Kommander to select and deploy applications, or deploy your own.

To get started, be sure that you have fulfilled the Prerequisites.
