This page describes how to manage your GKE on VMware clusters.
Before you begin
SSH into your admin workstation:
ssh -i ~/.ssh/vsphere_workstation ubuntu@[IP_ADDRESS]
Log in to Google Cloud using your account credentials:
gcloud auth login
Set a default project. Setting a default Google Cloud causes all gcloud CLI commands to run against the project, so that you don't need to specify your project for each command:
gcloud config set project [PROJECT_ID]
[PROJECT_ID]with your project ID. (You can find your project ID in Google Cloud console, or by running
gcloud config get-value project.)
Viewing your clusters
kubectl get clusters --kubeconfig [ADMIN_CLUSTER_KUBECONFIG]
If you chose to register your clusters with Google Cloud by populating
gkeconnect field of the GKE on VMware configuration file,
you can view your clusters in Google Cloud console. To learn more, see
Viewing registered clusters
in the Connect documentation.
Connecting to your clusters
If you want to connect to your clusters, you have two options:
- You can SSH into cluster nodes.
- Your user clusters are automatically registered to your Google Cloud project when you create them. This means you can view and log in to clusters from the Google Cloud console.
Checking cluster version
kubectl get cluster --kubeconfig [USER_CLUSTER_KUBECONFIG] -o yaml | grep bundle.gke.io/version
The cluster's version is the same as the bundle version returned by this command.
kubectl get pod -l api=clusterapi --kubeconfig [ADMIN_CLUSTER_KUBECONFIG] -o yaml -n kube-system | grep image:.*controller-manager
The cluster's version is the same as the image version returned by this command.
