Using the BOSH CLI

Page last updated:

After you deploy Tanzu Kubernetes Grid Integrated Edition from Tanzu Kubernetes Grid Integrated Edition Management Console on vSphere, you can use the BOSH CLI from both the management console VM and the Ops Manager VM.

Using the BOSH CLI from the Tanzu Kubernetes Grid Integrated Edition Management Console VM

You can use the BOSH CLI from the Tanzu Kubernetes Grid Integrated Edition Management Console VM.

  1. In Tanzu Kubernetes Grid Integrated Edition Management Console, go to the Deployment Metadata view.
  2. Expand the row for BOSH CLI invocation from console appliance.
  3. Click the clipboard icon at the end of the row to copy the BOSH CLI invocation information.
  4. Connect to the management console VM by using SSH.
    ssh <console_vm_address>
  5. Export the value that you copied from Deployment Metadata view to use BOSH CLI from the management console VM.
    export <bosh_cli_invocation_value>

Using BOSH SSH

The management console VM does not support the use of the bosh ssh command to connect to the BOSH VM from the management console VM. To connect to the BOSH VM by using bosh ssh, you must use the BOSH CLI from the Ops Manager VM.

  1. In Tanzu Kubernetes Grid Integrated Edition Management Console, go to the Deployment Metadata view.
  2. Expand the row for BOSH CLI invocation from Ops Manager.
  3. Click the clipboard icon at the end of the row to copy the BOSH CLI invocation command.
  4. Connect to the Ops Manager VM by using SSH.

    For information about how to connect to the Ops Manager VM, see Connect to Operations Manager with SSH.

  5. Export the value that you copied from Deployment Metadata view to use BOSH CLI from Ops Manager.
    export <bosh_cli_invocation_value>
