The Rancher v2.x Windows log collector script

This document (000020064) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.


Rancher v2.x Windows worker node log collection

Logs can be collected from a Windows worker node within a Rancher v2.x cluster using the Rancher v2.x Windows worker node log collection script.

N.B. The script needs to be downloaded and run directly on a Windows worker node using a Powershell session with Administrator Privileges.

To run the script, open a new Powershell window with Administrator Privileges and run the following command:

Set-ExecutionPolicy Bypass | . {iwr -useb} | iex

Upon successful completion, the log bundle will be written to the root of the C:\ drive in a file named rancher_<hostname>_<datetime>.tar.gz.
