How to install Verrazzano

The following instructions show you how to install Verrazzano in a single Kubernetes cluster.


Prepare for the installation

Before installing Verrazzano, see instructions on preparing Kubernetes platforms and installing the Verrazzano CLI (optional). Make sure that you have a valid kubeconfig file pointing to the Kubernetes cluster that you want to use for installing Verrazzano.

NOTE: Verrazzano can create network policies that can be used to limit the ports and protocols that pods use for network communication. Network policies provide additional security but they are enforced only if you install a Kubernetes Container Network Interface (CNI) plug-in that enforces them, such as Calico. For instructions on how to install a CNI plug-in, see the documentation for your Kubernetes cluster.

You can install Verrazzano using the Verrazzano CLI or with kubectl. See the following respective sections.

Verify the installation

Verrazzano installs multiple objects in multiple namespaces. In the verrazzano-system namespaces, all the pods in the Running state, does not guarantee, but likely indicates that Verrazzano is up and running.

$ kubectl get pods -n verrazzano-system
