How to use KubeVirt with minikube
- kvm2 driver
Enable KubeVirt on minikube
Minikube can be started with default values and those will be enough to run a quick example, that being said, if you can spare a few more GiBs of RAM (by default it uses 2GiB), it’ll allow you to experiment further.
We’ll create a profile for KubeVirt so it gets its own settings without interfering what any configuration you might have already, let’s start by increasing the default memory to 4GiB:
minikube config -p kubevirt set memory 4096 minikube config -p kubevirt set vm-driver kvm2 minikube start -p kubevirt
To enable this addon, simply run:
minikube addons enable kubevirt
In a minute or so kubevirt’s default components will be installed into your cluster.
You can run
kubectl get pods -n kubevirt to see the progress of the kubevirt installation.
To disable this addon, simply run:
minikube addons disable kubevirt
See official Minikube Quickstart documentation for more information and to install KubeVirt without using the addon.
