Bootstrap a kind cluster
A bootstrap cluster refers to a special type of local Kubernetes cluster used to bootstrap other clusters. The bootstrap cluster is required because the controllers that create other Kubernetes clusters require a Kubernetes cluster to run.
Konvoy deploys all cluster lifecycle services to a bootstrap cluster, which deploys a workload cluster. When the workload cluster is ready, move the cluster lifecycle services to the workload cluster. The workload cluster then manages its own lifecycle.
Bootstrap a Kind Cluster and CAPI controllers
Use the following command to create a bootstrap cluster:
dkp create bootstrap
If your environment uses HTTP/HTTPS proxies, you must include the flags
--no-proxy and their related values in this command for it to be successful. More information is available in Configure HTTP Proxy.
The output resembles:
✓ Creating a bootstrap cluster ✓ Initializing new CAPI components
When the bootstrap cluster is up, create the correct secrets and overrides.
