Using PKS

Page last updated:

Warning: Pivotal Container Service (PKS) v1.3 is no longer supported because it has reached the End of General Support (EOGS) phase as defined by the Support Lifecycle Policy.
To stay up to date with the latest software and security updates, upgrade to a supported version.

This section describes how to use Pivotal Container Service (PKS).

Note: Because PKS does not currently support the Kubernetes Service Catalog or the GCP Service Broker, binding clusters to Kubernetes services is not supported.

The procedures for using PKS have the following prerequisites:

  • You must have an external TCP or HTTPS load balancer configured to forward traffic to the PKS API endpoint. For more information, see the Configure External Load Balancer section of Installing PKS for your IaaS.

  • You must know the address of your PKS API endpoint and have a UAA-created user account that has been granted PKS cluster access. For more information, see Managing Users in PKS with UAA.

    Note: If your PKS installation is integrated with NSX-T, use the DNAT IP address assigned in the Retrieve the PKS Endpoint section of Installing PKS on vSphere with NSX-T Integration.
