3.7. Installing a private cluster on Azure
In OpenShift Container Platform version 4.5, you can install a private cluster into an existing Azure Virtual Network (VNet) on Microsoft Azure. The installation program provisions the rest of the required infrastructure, which you can further customize. To customize the installation, you modify parameters in the
install-config.yaml file before you install the cluster.
- 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.
