Can I move from self-managed Rancher to Rancher Prime Hosted?
This document (000020040) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.
- You must be running the latest stable version of Rancher (currently v2.7.6) for at least one week.
- Rancher cluster must be running Kubernetes v1.23 or higher for at least one week.
- All managed/downstream clusters must be running Kubernetes v1.23 or higher for at least one week.
- Have a kubeconfig file for all your managed (downstream) Kubernetes clusters. The kubeconfig file should point directly to the cluster’s kube-apiserver endpoint and not to Rancher. For RKE clusters, see Authorized Cluster Endpoint for setup.
- Authentication integration must be with a public endpoint that Rancher Prime Hosted can reach.
- Global and cluster catalogs must have a public endpoint that Rancher Prime Hosted can reach.
- Clusters provisioned using the vSphere node driver cannot be managed unless the vSphere API endpoint is made available to Rancher Prime Hosted.
- All downstream/managed clusters must have outbound Internet access over port 443, or at least outbound access to Rancher Prime Hosted.
- You must provide the output of Helm Chart values used to install Rancher:
helm get values -n cattle-system rancher > rancher-values.yaml
- You must provide a copy of the system summary report for your Rancher environment. See this article for instructions.
