[Rancher] I see some node drivers tagged as "Active" when I install Rancher. What does this mean?

This document (000020494) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.


Active drivers are those drivers that have been turned on. Only four Built-in node drivers are surfaced up in UI, as Active, in a default Rancher installation. It is only these five Built-in, Active node drivers that are validated and certified in any Rancher 2.x product version and consequently, published in the Rancher support matrix. These five Built-in, Active node drivers that are covered by Rancher Support are for:

  • Digital Ocean
  • AWS
  • Azure
  • vSphere - 6.5, 6.7, 7.0 update 2a
  • Linode (supported only from Rancher v2.3 or higher)
