Cluster configuration file sample

The following is a sample of the YAML file that gets created when you run the bmctl create cluster command. For more information on this command, and how you use it to create different kinds of cluster configurations, see the following topics:

Cluster configuration file


# bmctl configuration variables. Because this section is valid YAML but not a valid Kubernetes
# resource, this section can only be included when using bmctl to
# create the initial admin/hybrid cluster. Afterwards, when creating user clusters by directly
# applying the cluster and node pool resources to the existing cluster, you must remove this
# section.
gcrKeyPath: <path to GCR service account key>
sshPrivateKeyPath: <path to SSH private key, used for node access>
