    Please visit the link for the latest information

    https://console.bluemix.net/docs/containers/cs_regions.html#locations

  4. Use one of the location in your bluemix region to create a cluster

    >bx cs cluster-create –location <your location> –name <your ClusterName>

    ConnError4

  5. Verify the cluster is ready with ‘normal’ state

    > bx cs clusters

    ConnError5

     

    ConnError6

    The bluemix console should have ‘Ready’ status

    ConnError7
