Before you start with bootstrapping the Equinix Metal based management cluster with public networking, complete the following prerequisite steps:
Inspect the Requirements for an Equinix Metal based cluster to understand the potential impact of the Container Cloud deployment on your Equinix Metal project.
Configure the bootstrap node:
Log in to any personal computer or VM running Ubuntu 20.04 that you will be using as the bootstrap node.
If you use a newly created VM, run:
sudo apt-get update
Install the current Docker version available for Ubuntu 20.04:
sudo apt install docker.io
USERaccess to the Docker daemon:
sudo usermod -aG docker $USER
Log off and log in again to the bootstrap node to apply the changes.
Verify that Docker is configured correctly and has access to Container Cloud CDN. For example:
docker run --rm alpine sh -c "apk add --no-cache curl; \ curl https://binary.mirantis.com"
The system output must contain no error records. In case of issues, follow the steps provided in Troubleshooting.
If you require all Internet access to go through a proxy server for security and audit purposes, configure Docker proxy settings as described in the official Docker documentation.
Proceed to Equinix Metal project setup.
