3. InstallationΒΆ

  • Install cert-manager.

  • Make sure that kubectl is set up to access your cluster.

  • Download kubedr.yaml from the Releases page.


    We are also working on supporting Helm installs in the future.

  • Apply the downloaded kubedr.yaml, like so:

    $ kubectl apply -f kubedr.yaml

    Note that the following two images are required for Kubedr to work.

    • catalogicsoftware/kubedrutil:0.1.0

    • catalogicsoftware/kubedr:0.1.0

  • Applying kubedr.yaml will create a new namespace called kubedr-system and starts all the necessary pods, services, webhooks, and deployments in that namespace. It also installs the following Custom Resource Definitions (CRDs):

    • BackupLocation

    • MetadataBackupPolicy

    • MetadataBackupRecord

  • To verify that installation is successful, run the following command and ensure that all the resources are in running state.

$ kubectl -n kubedr-system get all
