Install Kubernetes Tools

Amazon EKS clusters require kubectl and kubelet binaries and the aws-cli or aws-iam-authenticator binary to allow IAM authentication for your Kubernetes cluster.

In this workshop we will give you the commands to download the Linux binaries. If you are running Mac OSX / Windows, please see the official EKS docs for the download links.

Install kubectl

sudo curl --silent --location -o /usr/local/bin/kubectl https://amazon-eks.s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/1.14.6/2019-08-22/bin/linux/amd64/kubectl


sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bin/kubectl
