Intro to PX-Backup on Kubernetes

Step 1 of 5

Wait for Kubernetes nodes to be ready

First, we need to wait for Kubernetes and Portworx to be ready. Be patient, this is not a very high performance environment, just a place to learn something.

Step: Wait for Kubernetes to be ready

Click the below section which waits for all Kubernetes nodes to be ready.

watch kubectl get nodes

When all 4 nodes show status Running then hit clear to ctrl-c and clear the screen.

Step: Wait for Portworx to be ready

Watch the Portworx pods and wait for them to be ready on all the nodes. All nodes in the below command output should show 1/1.

watch kubectl get pods -n kube-system -l name=portworx -o wide

When all the pods show STATUS Running and READY 1/1 then hit clear to ctrl-c and clear the screen.
