This chart installs the AWS CNI Daemonset:


  • Kubernetes 1.11+ running on AWS

Installing the Chart

First add the EKS repository to Helm:

helm repo add eks

To install the chart with the release name aws-vpc-cni and default configuration:

$ helm install --name aws-vpc-cni --namespace kube-system eks/aws-vpc-cni

To install into an EKS cluster where the CNI is already installed, you can run:

helm upgrade --install --recreate-pods --force aws-vpc-cni --namespace kube-system eks/aws-vpc-cni

If you receive an error similar to Error: release aws-vpc-cni failed: <resource> "aws-node" already exists, simply rerun the above command.


The following table lists the configurable parameters for this chart and their default values.

Specify each parameter using the --set key=value[,key=value] argument to helm install or provide a YAML file containing the values for the above parameters:

$ helm install --name aws-vpc-cni --namespace kube-system eks/aws-vpc-cni --values values.yaml
