How to backup Rancher created und managed Clusters


#1

Hey guys, i’ve got a question.

I’m wondering what’s the best practice for backing up a cluster, created by rancher (custom).
Our Rancher Server (HA) install itself is backed up and restored via rke.

But if a rancher created cluster goes boom, the descriptive contents are not backed up within the rancher-ha-backups. (Rancher 2.0 backup)

So i’m curious, how do you guys back up your created clusters, or do you don’t back them up at all?

Regards

This doesn’t really answer your question, but we use RKE to create all of our clusters, and then just import them into Rancher. That way we can use the built-in RKE backups.
