When you deploy the CDM or the CDK, the
amster pod starts and imports AM dynamic configuration. Once dynamic configuration is imported, the
amster pod is stopped and remains in
$ kubectl get pods NAME READY STATUS RESTARTS AGE admin-ui-b977c857c-2m9pq 1/1 Running 0 10m am-666687d69c-94thr 1/1 Running 0 12m amster-4prdg 0/1 Completed 0 12m ds-idrepo-0 1/1 Running 0 13m end-user-ui-674c4f79c-h4wgb 1/1 Running 0 10m idm-869679958c-brb2k 1/1 Running 0 12m login-ui-56dd46c579-gxrtx 1/1 Running 0 10m
After you install AM, use the amster run command to start the
amster pod for manually interacting with AM using the amster run command line interface and perform tasks such as exporting and importing AM configuration and troubleshooting:

Export and import AM configuration
To export AM configuration, use the amster export command.
Similarly, use the amster import command to import AM configuration.
At the end of the export or import session, the
amster pod is stopped by default. To keep the
amster pod running, use the --retain option. You can specify the time (in seconds) to keep the
amster running. To keep it running indefinitely, specify --retain infinity.
In the following example, the
amster pod is kept running for 300 seconds after completing export:
$ ./bin/amster export --retain 300 /tmp/myexports Cleaning up amster components job.batch "amster" deleted configmap "amster-files" deleted Packing and uploading configs configmap/amster-files created configmap/amster-export-type created configmap/amster-retain created Deploying amster job.batch/amster created Waiting for amster job to complete.
