The most simple deployment of PKE is a single-node installation without cloud integrations. This is useful for short-lived or development clusters.
PKE is currently available for CentOS 7.x, RHEL 7.x, and Ubuntu 18.04 LTS. Your machine should have at least 2 CPU cores.
Download and run the installer as root:
curl -L -v https://banzaicloud.com/downloads/pke/latest -o /usr/local/bin/pke && chmod +x /usr/local/bin/pke export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/bin/ pke install single
Set up the context for
kubectl(run as your preferred user):
mkdir -p $HOME/.kube sudo cp -i /etc/kubernetes/admin.conf $HOME/.kube/config sudo chown $(id -u):$(id -g) $HOME/.kube/config
You can use
kubectl from now on. Test it by executing kubectl get nodes.
