Akash Guidebook

Prepare Kubernetes Cluster


In this section we will create necessary Kubernetes labels, install Helm, and ensure the necessary Helm repositories are available.

Create Necessary Kubernetes Labels

  • Create the akash-services label if not done so prior
kubectl create ns akash-services
kubectl label ns akash-services akash.network/name=akash-services akash.network=true

Install Helm

  • Install Helm for Kubernetes package management if not done so prior
  • Execute on these steps on a Kubernetes control plane node
wget https://get.helm.sh/helm-v3.11.0-linux-amd64.tar.gz
tar -zxvf helm-v3.11.0-linux-amd64.tar.gz
install linux-amd64/helm /usr/local/bin/helm
###Remove any potential prior repo instances
helm repo remove akash
helm repo add akash https://akash-network.github.io/helm-charts

Update the Akash Helm Repo

helm repo update akash
