How to Set Up KUBECONFIG on Windows

1. Download config file from the Management Portal

Save the config file to the .kube folder under the user’s home directory %HOME%.kube .

For example: C:\Users{YourAccount}.kube .

2. Set up the system environment variable KUBECONFIG

Open System Properties . Click Environment Variables.

3. Under System Variables

If you don’t see any variable called KUBECONFIG , click New to create one. If you do have the variable, select the variable and click Edit .

4. Add or append the file path of the new config file.

Note that you need to enter the exact full path for the config. %HOME% will not work for this setting.

5. Verify the new config.

Type kubectl config view . You should see the new cluster name in the output.
