Configure kubectl to connect to Kubernetes Sandbox

To configure a locally-installed copy of kubectl to connect to the Kubernetes Sandbox, follow these steps:

  • Connect to the Bitnami Kubernetes Sandbox using SFTP.
  • Download the /etc/kubernetes/admin.conf file to your local system.
  • Edit the downloaded file and update the server variable to reflect the public IP address of the running Bitnami Kubernetes Sandbox instance.

    ...
    - cluster
      server: https://SERVER-IP:6443
    ...
    
  • Move the downloaded file to ~/.kube/sandbox.conf:

    $ sudo mv admin.conf ~/.kube/sandbox.conf
    
  • Set the KUBECONFIG environment variable to reflect the new configuration file:

    $ export KUBECONFIG=~/.kube/sandbox.conf
    

Your locally installed copy of kubectl should now be configured to use the Bitnami Kubernetes Sandbox. Verify this by executing kubectl cluster-info and checking the output.
