Certificate management

Certificate management commands allow you to install custom certificates for a variety of StarlingX use cases. For example:

  • StarlingX REST APIs and StarlingX Horizon web server.

  • StarlingX local Docker registry.

  • OpenStack REST APIs and OpenStack Horizon web server.

  • StarlingX trusted certificate authority(s).

certificate-install

Install certificate.

certificate-list

List certificates.

certificate-show

Show certificate details.

Local Docker registry management

Local Docker registry management commands enable you to remove images and free disk resources consumed by the local Docker registry. This is required if the local Docker registry’s file system (docker-distribution) becomes full.

registry-garbage-collect

Run the registry garbage collector.

This frees up the space on the file system used by deleted images. In rare cases, the system may trigger a swact in the small time window when garbage-collect is running. This may cause the registry to get stuck in read-only mode. If this occurs, run garbage-collect again to take the registry out of read-only mode.

registry-image-delete

Remove the specified Docker image from the local registry.

The image should be specified in the form name:tag. This command only removes the image from the local Docker registry. It does not free space on the file system.

Note

Any stx-openstack images in a system with stx-openstack applied should not be deleted. If space is needed, you can delete the older tags of stx-openstack images, but do not delete the most recent one. Deleting both the registry stx-openstack images and the one from the Docker cache will prevent failed pods from recovering. If this happens, manually download the deleted images from the same source as application-apply and push it to the local registry under the same name and tag.

registry-image-list

List all images in local docker registry.

registry-image-tags

List all tags for a Docker image from the local registry.
