Connect to the created cluster
Now that the cluster is built and kubectl is already installed, it is time to connect to the cluster. This is done by clicking on "Download-Config" in the context menu next to the cluster in the NWS backend.
The just downloaded Config must now be moved to the correct place.
To do this, we create a directory in the user home that is still required (if it does not exist) and copy the file into it. At the end we adjust the rights. All work is done as a local user:
mv ~/Downloads/config ~/.kube/
chmod 0600 ~/.kube/config
Now way is free for the first connection and the test with the cluster. Therefore, we execute the following command and check whether nodes are displayed. If you use NWS-ID, your browser will open for authentication. After that, just switch back to the terminal.
kubectl get nodes
