This guide shows you how you can easily deploy Portworx on IBM Cloud Private and IBM Cloud Private for Data
All worker nodes must have some unmounted disk or partition to contribute. Ideally this is raw/unformatted, but must be unmounted regardless.
ICP 3.1 and Above
For ICP 3.1 and above, Portworx is installed by Helm: https://github.com/IBM/charts/tree/master/community/portworx
Ex: helm install --name portworx-icpd --set "clusterName=px-icpd,usedrivesAndPartitions=true,usefileSystemDrive=true,internalKVDB=true,imageVersion=1.6.1" ./community/portworx
For the definitions, please refer to : https://github.com/IBM/charts/blob/master/community/portworx/values.yaml
Please note that
usefileSystemDrivewill make use of any drives/partitions that have formatted filesystems, but which are not mounted.
For ICP 22.214.171.124, Portworx should be installed via the Portworx installer at https://install.portworx.com/
