Hello All

I am new to Nutanix and new to Kubernetes so my apologises for the newbie questions?

I've played with docker and kubernetes on my Windows machine but having a brain freeze transitioning to the karbon cluster.

How do I get kubectl to use my configure file I downloaded from Karbon?

Currently kubectl is only talking to my docker VM's?

Many thanks in advance

Hi Thewanandonly,

Please see this Kubernetes documentation for more information:

In summary, you have 3 options:
  1. Place the kubeconfig file in ~/.kube/config
  2. Set it as an environment variable ($ export KUBECONFIG=karbon-kubectl.cfg)
  3. Specify it each time you run a kubectl command ($ kubectl --kubeconfig karbon-kubectl.cfg get pods)
