Management of the Platform9 CLI
This page provides instructions to install, update and uninstall the Platform9 CLI
The CLI currently supports
- Ubuntu 16.04
- Ubuntu 18.04
- CentOS 7.6/7.7/7.8
From the command line of your machine, run the following commands to download the CLI installer and run it to install the CLI.
bash <(curl -sL http://pf9.io/get_cli)
This will download a script named
cli_setup.sh and invoke the script.
This process will ask for the following:
- Your PMK deployment URL
- Your PMK account username and password
IMPORTANT - The CLI uses the ‘Service’ tenant and ‘RegionOne’ region by default. If you want to override these settings set
Region [RegionOne]: and
Tenant [service]: when prompted for during the CLI installation.
You need to supply the credentials only once - during the CLI installation. You can change the specified credentials later by editing the CLI configuration.
Once the CLI is successfully installed, you can run the CLI to create PMK clusters.
To upgrade the CLI to the latest version, simply run the cli-setup.sh script again.
It will update the installed packages if new versions are available in the upstream repository. NOTE - You will need to specify your PMK account credentials again.
Uninstall of all PMK components installed on the node
- Detach and deauthorize the node from the cluster by using PMK UI
