Launch downstream K3s cluster using MySQL datastore

Hi, it is unclear how we can launch a downstream K3S cluster from Rancher and set up the new cluster with an external datastore on MySQL.

In the UI, we see the capabilities for disabling the etcd datastore by default, but not sure how to pass the datastore values.

Any help?

Hi @spatialy,

The recomendations regarding database for donwstream clusters is to use etcd datasource, because it follows the principles of kubernetes. You can only setup mysql in upstream clusters.
