Hey there. This isn’t really a question but more of a comment that hopefully may spin up a good debate.
I am playing with the latest Rancher release (well, at least i pulled the latest from Docker hub) and I instantiated a K8s cluster. As I was playing with it I instantiated with kubectl (on my mac) a container (kubectl run mynginx --image=nginx). This showed up as a pod in Rancher. Good.
As I was trying to delete that pod (either from the UI or from the CLI) I noticed it kept recreating. After some digging I noticed that the CLI was considering it a “deployment” (and not just a “pod”). As soon as deleted the “deployment” the pod disappeared and never came back.
This reminded me that deployments / jobs have been recently introduced to K8s and perhaps the Rancher K8s distribution doesn’t yet support those (or at least they were not surfaced in the UI). Then I tried to run kubectl version and I noticed that the server version is v1.2.4-rancher10.
Let alone the micro issues I had … I am wondering if 1.2.4 isn’t realistically a too old version to play with? Is there any plan to upgrade to one of the latest K8s versions? The gap between 1.2.4 (May-ish) and the current latest official (1.4.6) seems to be fairly wide.
