Before you can use the Tanzu CLI or installer interface to deploy a management cluster, you must make sure that your infrastructure provider is correctly set up.
For production deployments, it is strongly recommended to enable identity management for your clusters. For information about the preparatory steps to perform before you deploy a management cluster, see Enabling Identity Management in Tanzu Kubernetes Grid.
If you need to deploy Tanzu Kubernetes Grid in an environment with no external Internet access, see Deploying Tanzu Kubernetes Grid in an Internet-Restricted Environment.
To deploy Tanzu Kubernetes Grid to VMware Cloud on AWS or to Azure VMware Solution, see Prepare a vSphere Management as a Service Infrastructure.
