Load images in to kind


In KIND, if you don't want to push images to a remote registry, you can load them in to the cluster your self.


kind load docker-image <image-name>:<tag> -n <cluster-name>

Example loading alpine:1234 in to our cluster called kind

kind load docker-image alpine:1234 -n kind

My image cant be found!

Do not use the tag latest as it will try and find the image on Docker hub.

You can either:

set pull policy to Never

imagePullPolicy: Never

retag your image

docker tag alpine:latest alpine:1234

and then re-load the image

kind load docker-image alpine:1234 -n kind
