Note: – This walkthrough uses Fedora 30 and uses a desktop so would work for similar configurations. Also you need to have atleast 4vCPUs, 9GB RAM and 35GB disk space. The RAM is a hard stop so make sure you have around 10GB on the Desktop/Laptop that you are using to install comfortably. You would have to register for a free redhat/developer account.

  1.  Download the Code Ready container archive from this link – https://developers.redhat.com/products/codeready-containers/overview
codeready-download-1

2. Extract the downloaded file and change to the directory.

tar-crc-2
crc-extracted-3
change to the crc directory-4

 3. Run the crc setup command and provide the admin password. If the requirements are met the setup script will complete.

crc setup progress
crc-setup complete

4. Run crc start to start the cluster

crc-start-image-pull-secret

5. Get the pull secret from from here – https://cloud.redhat.com/openshift/install/pull-secret

You might need to login into your redhat account if not already logged in.

6. You can just click on copy pull secret which will copy the secret to your clipboard and then go back to the terminal, right click and paste it and hit on enter and it will show the following screen.

7. After the cluster has started, take a note of your login credentials and the oc env commands to run.

oc-credentials
oc-env

7. Test the admin and developer logins.

crc admin login
crc developer login

8. Use crc console to open the web console and test the kubeadmin credentials. Note that you would have to accept the warnings for the certificate and proceed to the site.

crc console
ocp console
kubeadmin login
kube admin dashboard

The installation is complete.
