If you are exposing your cluster publicly (e.g. via a load balancer), you can connect to it using the pachctl connect command. This command will configure your local pachctl to connect to your cluster.

  1. Open a terminal.
  2. Retrieve the external IP address of your load balancer or your domain name.
    kubectl get services | grep pachyderm-proxy | awk '{print $4}'
  3. Update the context of your cluster using the IP address.
    pachctl connect https://pachyderm.<>
  4. Verify you are using the correct context.
    pachctl config get active-context
  5. Verify you can connect to your cluster by printing the PachD version.
    pachctl version
