Migration with Stork on OKE

Pairing with an OKE cluster requires the following additional steps because you also need to pass in your Oracle credentials which will be used to generate the authentication token.

Create a Secret with your Oracle credentials

Follow how to generate an API signing key from the Oracle documentation to create your API signing key. Note down the PATH where you store the API signing key.

On the source cluster, create a secret in the kube-system namespace with your Oracle credentials file:

kubectl create secret generic --from-file=$HOME/.oci/config --from-file $HOME/.oci/oci.pem -n  kube-system oci-creds
secret/oci-creds created

In this example, the API signing key is stored under the path $HOME/.oci/oci.pem, and the OCI config file is stored under $HOME/.oci/config.

Pass the Secret to Stork

You need to provide the credentials created in the previous step to Stork. When deploying through the Portworx Operator, add the following to the stork section of the StorageCluster spec:

    enabled: true    
    - name: oci-creds
      mountPath: /root/.oci/
      readOnly: true
        secretName: oci-creds
    - name: OCI_CLI_KEY_FILE
      value: /root/.oci/oci.pem
      value: /root/.oci/config
NOTE: Make sure that your OCI configuration file does not have a key_file argument pointing to your local path. Your local path to the key file will not match with what is being presented to the Stork container.
