Creating Konvoy Clusters on Premises

A guide for creating Konvoy clusters on your own premises' infrastructure


Inventory Your Hosts

You need an Ansible inventory file to describe the hosts where you want to install Konvoy. You can use Konvoy to generate the skeleton of your inventory and cluster definitions:

konvoy init --provisioner=none [--cluster-name <your-specified-name>]

Cluster Configuration

After editing the inventory file, edit the generated cluster.yaml file. The cluster.yaml file provides the configuration details for creating your Konvoy cluster.

See the Install on-premise guide in the Konvoy documentation for more details.

Provision in UI

Add Cluster Options

From the Add Cluster menu, select the Upload YAML to Create a Cluster option and select the On Premise Cloud Provider from the Select Cloud Provider field.

Paste the contents of the cluster.yaml and inventory.yaml files into the form and select Continue to begin provisioning Konvoy onto your hosts.
