kubeadm-token-generate - Man Page

Generate and print a bootstrap token, but do not create it on the server

Eric Paris Jan 2015


kubeadm token generate [OPTIONS]


This command will print out a randomly-generated bootstrap token that can be used with the "init" and "join" commands.

You don't have to use this command in order to generate a token. You can do so yourself as long as it is in the format "[a-z0-9]{6}.[a-z0-9]{16}". This command is provided for convenience to generate tokens in the given format.

You can also use "kubeadm init" without specifying a token and it will generate and print one for you.

Options Inherited from Parent Commands

--azure-container-registry-config="" Path to the file containing Azure container registry configuration information.

--dry-run=false Whether to enable dry-run mode or not

--kubeconfig="/etc/kubernetes/admin.conf" The kubeconfig file to use when talking to the cluster. If the flag is not set, a set of standard locations can be searched for an existing kubeconfig file.

--rootfs="" [EXPERIMENTAL] The path to the 'real' host root filesystem.

--version=false --version, --version=raw prints version information and quits; --version=vX.Y.Z... sets the reported version
