As already mentioned, the Gardener is designed to run as API server extension in an existing Kubernetes cluster. In order to deploy it, you require valid Kubernetes manifests. We use Helm in order to generate these manifests. The respective Helm chart for the Gardener can be found here. In order to deploy it, execute
# Check https://github.com/gardener/gardener/releases for current available releases. RELEASE=0.19.1 # Since master can have breaking changes after last release, checkout the tag for your release git checkout $RELEASE cat <<EOF > gardener.values global: apiserver: image: tag: $RELEASE controller: image: tag: $RELEASE EOF helm install charts/gardener \ --namespace garden \ --name gardener \ -f gardener.values \ --wait
gardennamespace (not overrideable).
:warning: The Seed Kubernetes clusters need to have a
nginx-ingress-controller deployed to make the Gardener work properly. Moreover, there should exist a DNS record
<SEED-CLUSTER-DOMAIN> is the value of the
ingressDomain field of a Seed cluster resource.
