CPS Quickstart OperatorHub

Make sure all the prerequisites are done before continuing with the below steps.

The installation of StorageOS using the Red Hat Marketplace requires the Openshift cluster to be registered to the Marketplace Portal, including the roll out of the PullSecret in your cluster. Failure to do so will result in an image pull authentication failure with the Red Hat registry.

1) Go to Operators -> OperatorHub on your OpenShift console

2) Search for Appranix in OperatorHub and choose the Certified Operator installation
