Create bootstrap tokens on the server

Synopsis

This command will create a bootstrap token for you. You can specify the usages for this token, the “time to live” and an optional human friendly description.

The [token] is the actual token to write. This should be a securely generated random token of the form “[a-z0-9]{6}.[a-z0-9]{16}“. If no [token] is given, kubeadm will generate a random token instead.

kubeadm token create [token]

Options

      --config string        Path to a kubeadm configuration file.
      --description string   A human friendly description of how this token is used.
      --groups strings       Extra groups that this token will authenticate as when used for authentication. Must match "\\Asystem:bootstrappers:[a-z0-9:-]{0,255}[a-z0-9]\\z" (default [system:bootstrappers:kubeadm:default-node-token])
  -h, --help                 help for create
      --print-join-command   Instead of printing only the token, print the full 'kubeadm join' flag needed to join the cluster using the token.
      --ttl duration         The duration before the token is automatically deleted (e.g. 1s, 2m, 3h). If set to '0', the token will never expire (default 24h0m0s)
      --usages strings       Describes the ways in which this token can be used. You can pass --usages multiple times or provide a comma separated list of options. Valid options: [signing,authentication] (default [signing,authentication])

Options inherited from parent commands

      --dry-run             Whether to enable dry-run mode or not
      --kubeconfig string   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. (default "/etc/kubernetes/admin.conf")
      --rootfs string       [EXPERIMENTAL] The path to the 'real' host root filesystem.
