11.5.13. Verifying cluster status
You can verify your OpenShift Container Platform cluster’s status during or after installation.
In the cluster environment, export the administrator’s kubeconfig file:
$ export KUBECONFIG=<installation_directory>/auth/kubeconfig 1
<installation_directory>, specify the path to the directory that you stored the installation files in.
kubeconfigfile contains information about the cluster that is used by the CLI to connect a client to the correct cluster and API server.
View the control plane and compute machines created after a deployment:
$ oc get nodes
View your cluster’s version:
$ oc get clusterversion
View your Operators' status:
$ oc get clusteroperator
View all running pods in the cluster:
$ oc get pods -A
If the installation fails, the installation program times out and displays an error message. To learn more, see Troubleshooting installation issues.
