RedHat OpenShift Container Platform - commanding the line ..

As per previous posts, I'm working with RedHat OpenShift Container Platform (OCP) a lot at present, and was looking for the most recent command-line tool, namely oc, for my Mac.

RedHat have the downloads for macOS, Windows and Linux here: -

Command-line interface (CLI) tools

so I pulled the appropriate tarball 



which resulted in: -

-rw-r--r--@   1 hayd  staff    41481963 28 Oct 15:35 openshift-client-mac.tar.gz

Having unpacked this: -

ls -al ~/Downloads/openshift-client-mac

total 384664
drwx------@ 5 hayd  staff       160 28 Oct 15:51 .
drwx------@ 7 hayd  staff       224 28 Oct 15:51 ..
-rw-r--r--@ 1 hayd  staff       954  1 Oct 01:41 README.md
-rwxr-xr-x@ 2 hayd  staff  98469344  1 Oct 01:41 kubectl
-rwxr-xr-x@ 2 hayd  staff  98469344  1 Oct 01:41 oc


I checked the version of oc - having had 4.7 previously: -

~/Downloads/openshift-client-mac/oc version

Client Version: 4.9.0

However, I also noted that the bundle includes kubectl 

When I checked the version of that: -

~/Downloads/openshift-client-mac/kubectl version

Client Version: version.Info{Major:"1", Minor:"21", GitVersion:"v0.21.0-beta.1", GitCommit:"96e95cef877ba04872b88e4e2597eabb0174d182", GitTreeState:"clean", BuildDate:"2021-10-01T00:41:12Z", GoVersion:"go1.16.6", Compiler:"gc", Platform:"darwin/amd64"}

which is out of sync with the version that I'm already using: -

kubectl version

Client Version: version.Info{Major:"1", Minor:"22", GitVersion:"v1.22.2", GitCommit:"8b5a19147530eaac9476b0ab82980b4088bbc1b2", GitTreeState:"clean", BuildDate:"2021-09-15T21:31:32Z", GoVersion:"go1.16.8", Compiler:"gc", Platform:"darwin/amd64"}

I'm not 100% sure why, and will ask around, but... in the meantime, I'll stick with what I have ...
