The CSI Driver for Dell Unity XT, PowerScale and PowerStore supports VMware Tanzu. The deployment of these Tanzu clusters is done using the VMware Tanzu supervisor cluster and the supervisor namespace.
Currently, VMware Tanzu with normal configuration(without NAT) supports Kubernetes 1.20 and higher. The CSI driver can be installed on this cluster using Helm. Installation of CSI drivers in Tanzu via Operator has not been qualified.
To login to the Tanzu cluster, download kubectl and kubectl vsphere binaries to any of the system
Connect to the VCenter using kubectl vSphere commands as shown below.
kubectl vsphere login --insecure-skip-tls-verify --vsphere-username vSphere username --server=https://<tanzu-server-ip>/ -v 5
Once login is done to the Tanzu cluster, the installation of CSI driver is done using kubectl binary similar to how we do for other systems.
