The following documentation will help you deploy an OpenShift Container Platform (OCP) 4.3 cluster, on a single node. The installation steps deploys a production like OCP4 cluster, in a environment with 3 controlplane and 3 computes on a KVM hosts running Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL)
Refer to the Getting Started Guide to ensure RHEL 7 is installed.
|Navigate to OpenShift Cluster Manager API Token to generate a token and save it as ocp_token. This token will be used to download your pull secret.||From your web browser, navigate to Red Hat OpenShift Cluster Manager. Find the Pull secret heading to either download or copy your pull secret, save it as pull-secret.txt.|
Download and extract the qubinode-installer as a non root user.
cd $HOME wget https://github.com/Qubinode/qubinode-installer/archive/master.zip unzip master.zip rm master.zip mv qubinode-installer-master qubinode-installer
Place your pull secret and the rhel qcow image under the qubinode-installer directory.
If you are using tokens it should be:
* $HOME/qubinode-installer/ocp_token * $HOME/qubinode-installer/rhsm_token
If you downloaded the files instead it should be:
* $HOME/qubinode-installer/pull-secret.txt * $HOME/qubinode-installer/rhel-server-7.8-x86_64-kvm.qcow2 * $HOME/qubinode-installer/rhel-8.2-x86_64-kvm.qcow2
Choose one of the below options. The quick start is ideal if you meet your resource requirements documented in our hardware guide. The advanced option will provide the most flexibilty as you can decide which modules you want to execute and also customize your OCP4 cluster size.
|Standard Deployment||Custom Deployment|
|Answer questions from the installer to deploy a 6 node OpenShift 4.x cluster, 3 controlplane and 3 computes.||This option will allow you to deploy a 3 only or 4 node cluster or to customize the size of the cluster.|
