Installation guide

Set up RBAC

Set up basic RBAC rules for etcd operator:

$ example/rbac/

Install etcd operator

Create a deployment for etcd operator:

$ kubectl create -f example/deployment.yaml

etcd operator will automatically create a Kubernetes Custom Resource Definition (CRD):

$ kubectl get customresourcedefinitions
NAME                                    KIND

Uninstall etcd operator

Note that the etcd clusters managed by etcd operator will NOT be deleted even if the operator is uninstalled.

This is an intentional design to prevent accidental operator failure from killing all the etcd clusters.

To delete all clusters, delete all cluster CR objects before uninstalling the operator.

Clean up etcd operator:

kubectl delete -f example/deployment.yaml
kubectl delete endpoints etcd-operator
kubectl delete clusterrole etcd-operator
kubectl delete clusterrolebinding etcd-operator

Installation using Helm

Disclaimer: The following Helm chart is an external project not maintained by the etcd operator maintainers; so it may not be up to date.

etcd operator is available as a Helm chart. Follow the instructions on the chart to install etcd operator on clusters.
