How to install and use the preflight binary

This content is associated with a legacy version of the Replicated product. For the current Replicated product documentation, see docs.replicated.com.

If krew plugins are not an option, it’s still possible to run the same Preflight tool by installing a binary on your workstation, or by running preflights in a Docker container.
