Can I move an existing Kubernetes cluster to Rancher Hosted Prime?

This document (000020156) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.


Existing Kubernetes clusters can be imported into Rancher Hosted Prime. However, you cannot currently move a cluster that is already managed by Rancher to Rancher Hosted Prime. We are currently looking to enhance our management capabilities to allow users to move clusters between Rancher clusters. See GitHub issue 16471. As a workaround, you can redeploy workloads running in an existing cluster over to a new Rancher Hosted Prime managed cluster.
