Enable Kubernetes

Docker Desktop comes with a built-in single Kubernetes cluster, which must be enabled to use Calyptia Core for Docker Desktop. Make sure Kubernetes is running before installing Calyptia Core. Steps:
  • Click on the Settings gear icon from the top right.
  • In the left menu, go to Kubernetes.
  • Check the box for Enable Kubernetes.
  • Click the Apply & Restart button.
Note that enabling Kubernetes for the first time can take a few minutes depending on your internet bandwidth since the process involves downloading a couple of container images.

Manual check from the terminal (optional)

If you want to manually check the status of Kubernetes open your terminal and use the command:
kubectl get pods --all-namespaces
You will get a list of the Pods that are running or still being deployed:
