Download bmctl

bmctl is the command-line tool for Anthos clusters on bare metal that simplifies cluster creation and management. For more information about what you can do with bmctl, see bmctl tool.

From your Linux admin workstation, use the following commands to download bmctl and make it executable:

gsutil cp gs://anthos-baremetal-release/bmctl/VERSION/linux-amd64/bmctl .
chmod +x ./bmctl

Replace VERSION with the version of Anthos clusters on bare metal you want to install or upgrade your clusters to. The latest available patch version is 1.11.1.

Verify bmctl using openssl

Verify the bmctl binary against the public key using openssl, where VERSION is the file's version:

gsutil cp gs://anthos-baremetal-release/bmctl/VERSION/linux-amd64/bmctl.1.sig .
openssl dgst -verify - -signature ./bmctl.1.sig ./bmctl <<'EOF'
-----BEGIN PUBLIC KEY-----

wQfk16sxprI2gOJ2vFFggdq3ixF2h4qNBt0kI7ciDhgpwS8t+/960IsIgw==
-----END PUBLIC KEY-----
EOF

Expected output of this command is Verified OK.

Download the images package

You only need the images package if you plan on setting up a registry mirror. The package provides all of the container images used by Anthos clusters on bare metal for the specified version. Make sure the package you download is the same version as the bmctl download.

From your Linux admin workstation, run the following command to download the package:

gsutil cp gs://anthos-baremetal-release/bmctl/VERSION/linux-amd64/bmpackages_VERSION.tar.xz .

Verify the images package using openssl

Verify the images package binary against the public key using openssl, where VERSION is the file's version:

gsutil cp gs://anthos-baremetal-release/bmctl/VERSION/linux-amd64/bmpackages_VERSION.tar.xz.1.sig .
openssl dgst -verify - -signature ./bmpackages_VERSION.tar.xz.1.sig ./bmpackages_VERSION.tar.xz <<'EOF'
