Install the MKE image¶
To install MKE:
Log in to the target host using Secure Shell (SSH).
Pull the latest version of MKE:
docker image pull mirantis/ucp:3.5.8
docker container run --rm -it --name ucp \ -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock \ mirantis/ucp:3.5.8 install \ --host-address <node-ip-address> \ --interactive
The ucp install command runs in interactive mode, prompting you for the necessary configuration values. For more information about the ucp install command, including how to install MKE on a system with SELinux enabled, refer to the MKE Operations Guide: mirantis/ucp install.
MKE installs Project Calico for Kubernetes container-to-container communication. However, you may install an alternative CNI plugin, such as Cilium, Weave, or Flannel. For more information, refer to the MKE Operations Guide: Installing an unmanaged CNI plugin.
