Remote CLI AccessΒΆ

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

  1. The first method involves using the remote CLI tarball from a StarlingX mirror to install a set of container-backed remote CLIs for accessing a remote StarlingX. This provides access to the kubernetes-related CLIs (kubectl, helm). This approach is simple to install, portable across Linux, OSX and Windows, and provides access to all StarlingX CLIs. However, commands such as those that reference local files or require a shell are awkward to run in this environment.

  2. 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.
