Access cRPD CLI

You can access the command-line interface (CLI) of the cloud-native router controller by accessing the shell of the running cRPD container.


The commands below are provided as an example. The cRPD pod name must be replaced from your environment. The command outputs may differ based on your environment.

View the running pods in the cluster:

Copy the name of the cRPD pod—kube-crpd-worker-ds-8tnf7 in this example output . You will use the pod name to connect to the running container's shell.

Connect to the cRPD CLI

Issue the kubectl exec command to access the running container's shell:

where <namespace> identifies the namespace in which the pod is running, <pod name> specificies the name of the pod and the <container name> specifies the name of the container (to be specified if the pod has more than one container).

The cRPD pod has only one running container. Here is an example command:

At this point, you have connected to the shell of the cRPD. Just as with other Junos-based shells, you access the operational mode of the cloud-native router the same way as if you were connected to the console of a physical Junos OS device.
