Version 1.6. This version is fully supported, offering the latest patches and updates for security vulnerabilities, exposures, and issues impacting Anthos clusters on VMware. Refer to the release notes for more details. This is the most recent version.

Connecting to a cluster from the Google Cloud Console

With Connect, you can use the Google Cloud Console to manage your user clusters for Anthos clusters on VMware (GKE on-prem).

Before you begin

Create a user cluster (quickstart | full instructions).

Cluster registration

Each Anthos clusters on VMware user cluster that you create automatically runs the Connect agent and is registered with Connect to your project environ—a unified way to view and manage multiple clusters and their workloads as part of Anthos. You can find out more about environs and the functionality that they enable in our Environs guide.

Registered clusters are visible in your Anthos Clusters page in the Cloud Console and can be used with Anthos components and features.

If you need to manually register a Anthos clusters on VMware cluster with Connect (for example, if you want to move the cluster's membership to a different environ, or if you unregistered it by mistake), follow the instructions in Registering a cluster.

Logging into your cluster

To manage a registered Anthos clusters on VMware cluster from the Cloud Console, you need to log into the cluster from the console. Doing this lets you view, monitor, debug, and manage workloads on your Anthos clusters on VMware clusters through the Google Cloud Console.

Follow the instructions in logging into clusters to create the necessary roles and accounts and log in to your cluster.
