Configure Remote CLI AccessΒΆ

You can access the system from a remote workstation using one of two methods.

  • The first method involves using the remote CLI tarball from StarlingX Public build servers to install a set of container-backed remote CLIs and clients for accessing a remote StarlingX. This provides access to the system and dcmanager StarlingX CLIs, the OpenStack CLI for Keystone and Barbican in the platform, and Kubernetes-related CLIs (kubectl, helm). This approach is simple to install, portable across Linux, macOS, and Windows, and provides access to all StarlingX CLIs. However, commands such as those that reference local files or require a shell are difficult to run in this environment.

  • The second method involves installing the kubectl and helm clients directly on the remote host. This method only provides the Kubernetes-related CLIs and requires OS-specific installation instructions.

The helm client has additional installation requirements applicable to either of the above two methods.
