tar -xzvf dkp-air-gapped-bundle_v2.5.2_linux_amd64.tar.gz && cd dkp-v2.5.2/kib
Follow the instructions below to build an AMI.
An air-gapped example of override file use is the command below which produces an AWS FIPS-compliant image on RHEL 8.4:
konvoy-image build --overrides overrides/offline-fips.yaml images/ami/rhel-84.yaml
