As described in Solution Overview, it is possible to define four types of clusters with Anthos on bare metal - admin cluster, user cluster, hybrid cluster, and stand-alone cluster.
This section provides the steps to create a hybrid cluster.
To create the hybrid cluster:
gcloud auth application-default login
bmctl create config -c <HYBRID_CLUSTER_NAME>
./bmctl create cluster -c CLUSTER_NAME
The bmctl command runs preflight checks on the cluster config file before it creates a cluster. If the checks are successful, the cluster is created.
The bmctl logs, the preflight check and the node installation logs, are in the baremetal/bmctl-workspace/<CLUSTER_NAME>/log directory:
kubectl --kubeconfig bmctl-workspace/<CLUSTER_NAME>/<CLUSTER_NAME>-kubeconfig get nodes
