You want to manage Kubernetes (e.g., Amazon EKS) via a server in AWS. You want to install the aws-iam-authenticator on a Linux server. How do you do this?
1. To install aws-iam-authenticator go here to obtain the link that is relevant for your server. You will search the above link for "aws-iam-authenticator binary from Amazon S3"
2. If you are using Linux, run these commands to download, install and configure aws-iam-authenticator:
curl http://link/above > /tmp/aws-iam-authenticator # This tests the installation
chmod +x /tmp/aws-iam-authenticator
cp /tmp/aws-iam-authenticator $HOME/bin/aws-iam-authenticator && export PATH=$HOME/bin:$PATH
echo 'export PATH=$HOME/bin:$PATH' >> ~/.bashrc
