How to pull the logs from the rancher-wins service on a Windows node in a Rancher v2.x provisioned Kubernetes cluster
This document (000020107) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.
In Windows Kubernetes clusters, available in Rancher v2.3.0 and above, the
rancher-wins service provides a method for Rancher to operate the Windows host. Whilst troubleshooting a Windows cluster issue it may be necessary to pull the logs from this service, as documented in this article.
- A Windows Kubernetes cluster provisioned by Rancher v2.3.0 and above
To pull the logs from the
rancher-wins service, execute the following command in a Powershell session on the node:
Get-EventLog -LogName Application -Source rancher-wins > wins.log
This will write the logs to the file
wins.log in the working directory, which you can then provide in your Rancher Support Ticket, for analysis.
