4.9.15. Wait for bootstrap completion and remove bootstrap resources in GCP

After you create all of the required infrastructure in Google Cloud Platform (GCP), wait for the bootstrap process to complete on the machines that you provisioned by using the Ignition config files that you generated with the installation program.


  • Configure a GCP account.
  • Generate the Ignition config files for your cluster.
  • Create and configure a VPC and associated subnets in GCP.
  • Create and configure networking and load balancers in GCP.
  • Create control plane and compute roles.
  • Create the bootstrap machine.
  • Create the control plane machines.


  1. Change to the directory that contains the installation program and run the following command:

    $ ./openshift-install wait-for bootstrap-complete --dir=<installation_directory> \ 1
        --log-level info 2
    For <installation_directory>, specify the path to the directory that you stored the installation files in.
    To view different installation details, specify warn, debug, or error instead of info.

    If the command exits without a FATAL warning, your production control plane has initialized.

  2. Delete the bootstrap resources:

    $ gcloud compute backend-services remove-backend ${INFRA_ID}-api-internal-backend-service --region=${REGION} --instance-group=${INFRA_ID}-bootstrap-instance-group --instance-group-zone=${ZONE_0}
    $ gsutil rm gs://${INFRA_ID}-bootstrap-ignition/bootstrap.ign
    $ gsutil rb gs://${INFRA_ID}-bootstrap-ignition
    $ gcloud deployment-manager deployments delete ${INFRA_ID}-bootstrap
