How to connect to a cluster with kubectl
Once your cluster is created, a
.kubeconfig file is available for download to manage several Kubernetes clusters. You can use this with kubectl, the Kubernetes command line tool, allowing you to run commands against your Kubernetes clusters. You can use kubectl from a terminal on your local computer to deploy applications, inspect and manage cluster resources, and view logs.
Install kubectl on your local computer.
.kubeconfigfiles from your Cluster’s overview page:
Configure access to your cluster. You can do this in one of two ways:
use $HOME/.kube/config file:
mv $HOME/Downloads/Kubeconfig-ClusterName.yaml $HOME/.kube/config
Either way, make sure you replace
/$HOME/Downloads/Kubeconfig-ClusterName.yamlwith the correct name and path of your downloaded
Run the following command to finish:
kubectl get nodes
