This document describes steps to deploy Antrea in NetworkPolicy only mode to an AWS EKS cluster.
Assuming you already have an EKS cluster, and have
KUBECONFIG environment variable point to
the kubeconfig file of that cluster.
With Antrea >=v0.9.0 release, you should apply
antrea-eks-node-init.yaml before deploying Antrea.
This will restart existing Pods (except those in host network), so that Antrea can also manage them
(i.e. enforce NetworkPolicies on them) once it is installed.
kubectl apply -f https://raw.githubusercontent.com/vmware-tanzu/antrea/main/build/yamls/antrea-eks-node-init.yml
To deploy a released version of Antrea, pick a deployment manifest from the
list of releases.
Note that EKS support was added in release 0.5.0, which means you cannot
pick a release older than 0.5.0. For any given release
you can deploy Antrea as follows:
kubectl apply -f https://github.com/vmware-tanzu/antrea/releases/download/<TAG>/antrea-eks.yml
To deploy the latest version of Antrea (built from the main branch), use the
checked-in deployment yaml (
kubectl apply -f https://raw.githubusercontent.com/vmware-tanzu/antrea/main/build/yamls/antrea-eks.yml
Now Antrea should be plugged into the EKS CNI and is ready to enforce NetworkPolicy.
