Before you begin

Because the technology preview is an optional part of the Cloud Pak for Applications v4.2 installation, the same hardware and software pre-requisites apply for OpenShift® and the Cloud Pak installer CLI. For more information, see Preparing for installation.

The Accelerator tools require dynamic storage provisioning with a default StorageClass of type Filesystem. For more information, see Dynamic provisioning External link icon in the Red Hat® documentation.

Installation steps

The following steps describe the installation process. You can find more detailed information for steps 1 through to 3 in Installing with the Cloud Pak CLI.

Step 1: Obtain the entitlement key that is assigned to your ID.

Step 2: Extract the installation configuration from the installer image on the entitled registry.

Step 3: Review the installation configuration files.

Step 4: Run the installer.

  docker run -v ~/.kube:/root/.kube:z -u 0 -t \
              -v $PWD/data:/installer/data:z \
              -e LICENSE=accept \
