Before you can create clusters using Tanzu Kubernetes Grid (TKG), you must connect to your management cluster. How you do this depends on the type of the management cluster that you plan to use:
Tanzu Kubernetes Grid 2 with Supervisor. You can connect to the Supervisor using either of the following methods:
TKG with a standalone management cluster. To connect to the standalone management cluster, you integrate the cluster with an OIDC or LDAP identity provider or use the build-in authentication mechanism provided by TKG. For instructions, see Identity and Access Management.
After you create a cluster using a Supervisor or standalone management cluster, you can connect to the cluster using:
kubectlby itself or in conjunction with the Tanzu CLI. For instructions, see Connecting to TKG Clusters on Supervisor Using vCenter SSO Authentication.
For conceptual information about identity and access management in TKG, see:
