By default, the chart runs in standalone mode. This mode uses a single Vault server with a file storage backend. This is a less secure and less resilient installation that is NOT appropriate for a production setup. It is highly recommended to use a properly secured Kubernetes cluster, learn the available configuration options, and read the production deployment checklist.
Post installation configuration
Additionally you have to make sure that you have the Vault binary installed locally on your workstation.
Accessing the UI Frontend
Vault comes with a nice UI where you can do most of the management instead of using the terminal. To access it you need to install a Kubernetes Ingress Controller like Nginx or HAProxy.
Next create the Kubernetes Manifest for the Ingress resource and apply it.
cat <<EOF | kubectl apply -f - apiVersion: networking.k8s.io/v1 kind: Ingress metadata: name: vault-ingress annotations: kubernetes.io/ingress.class: nginx spec: rules: - host: vault.<MY_CIVO_CLUSTER_DNS_NAME> http: paths: - path: / pathType: Prefix backend: service: name: vault port: number: 8200 EOF
