Install the Run:ai Control Plane (Backend)

Create a Control Plane Configuration


The control-plane installation on Openshift assumes that an identity provider has been configured in OpenShift.

Run: oc login. Then create a configuration file to install the Run:ai control plane:

Generate a values file by running:

runai-adm generate-values --openshift \
    --first-admin <FIRST_ADMIN_USER_OF_RUNAI> 

Generate a values file by running the following under the deploy folder:

runai-adm generate-values --openshift --airgapped  \
    --first-admin <FIRST_ADMIN_USER_OF_RUNAI>

A file called runai-backend-values.yaml will be created.

Install the Control Plane (Backend)

Run the helm command below:

helm repo add runai-backend
helm repo update
helm install runai-backend -n runai-backend runai-backend/runai-backend \
    -f runai-backend-values.yaml 


To install a specific version, add --version <version> to the install command.

helm install runai-backend runai-backend/runai-backend-<version>.tgz -n \
    runai-backend -f runai-backend-values.yaml 
(replace <version> with the control plane version)


Use the --dry-run flag to gain an understanding of what is being installed before the actual installation.

Connect to Run:ai User Interface

Run: oc get routes -n runai-backend to find the Run:ai Administration User Interface URL. Log in using the default credentials: User:, Password: password
