Run in a non-default namespace

The Velero installation and backups by default are run in the velero namespace. However, it is possible to use a different namespace.

1) Customize the namespace during install

Use the --namespace flag, in conjunction with the other flags in the velero install command (as shown in the the Velero install instructions). This will inform Velero where to install.

2) Customize the namespace for operational commands

To have namespace consistency, specify the namespace for all Velero operational commands to be the same as the namespace used to install Velero:

velero client config set namespace=<NAMESPACE_VALUE>

Alternatively, you may use the global --namespace flag with any operational command to tell Velero where to run.
