Linkerd 2.0 - Getting Started on OpenShift

Step 1 of 4

Step 1 - Setup the CLI

As this is your first time running Linkerd2, you’ll need to download the command-line interface (CLI) onto your machine. You’ll then use this CLI to install Linkerd2 on a Kubernetes cluster.

curl -k https://run.linkerd.io/install | sed -e 's/-sLO/-sLO -k/g' | sed -e 's/-sL \"/-sL -k \"/g' | sh

Next, add Linkerd2 to your path with:

export PATH=$PATH:$HOME/.linkerd2/bin

Verify that the CLI is installed and is running correctly with the following command:

linkerd version

With Server version: unavailable, don’t worry, we haven’t added the control plane… yet.
