Deploying the Gardener into a Minikube with Local Provider


Make sure that you have completed the following steps:


Then in a terminal execute:

# Minikube requires extra memory for this setup
$ minikube start --cpus=3 --memory=4096 --extra-config=apiserver.authorization-mode=RBAC

# Allow Tiller and Dashboard to run in RBAC mode
$ kubectl create clusterrolebinding add-on-cluster-admin --clusterrole=cluster-admin --serviceaccount=kube-system:default

# Start Helm's Tiller
$ helm init

# Deploy Gardener with local specific configuration
$ helm install charts/gardener \
  --name gardener \
  --namespace garden \
  --values=charts/gardener/values.yaml \

# Check that everything is deployed successfully and running without a problem
$ kubectl -n garden get pods
NAME                                           READY     STATUS    RESTARTS   AGE

$ make dev-setup-local
namespace "garden-dev" created
cloudprofile "local" created

You can now continue with Check Local Setup
