3.3. Installing a cluster quickly on Azure
In OpenShift Container Platform version 4.5, you can install a cluster on Microsoft Azure that uses the default configuration options.
- Review details about the OpenShift Container Platform installation and update processes.
- Configure an Azure account to host the cluster and determine the tested and validated region to deploy the cluster to.
- If you use a firewall, you must configure it to allow the sites that your cluster requires access to.
- If you do not allow the system to manage identity and access management (IAM), then a cluster administrator can manually create and maintain IAM credentials. Manual mode can also be used in environments where the cloud IAM APIs are not reachable.
