Installing the Podman Preset with OpenShift Local
On Windows, running the Podman container engine requires running a Linux distribution on a virtual machine.
Consider installing the Podman Preset in OpenShift Local rather than installing Podman with Podman Desktop when you require one of following:
- No WSL 2
- Full control on the HyperV virtual machine
- User without administrator privileges
- Windows 10
- The user is a member of the Hyper-V Administrators group. The user can add a virtual machine, start or stop this virtual machine, and access the resources related to this virtual machine.
- Windows 10 version 1709 or later, Enterprise or Professional edition, or Windows 11, Enterprise or Professional edition
Select the Podman container runtime preset:
$ crc config set preset podman
Set up your host machine for Red Hat OpenShift Local:
