Does anyone know if it is possible to use the built in loadblancer in Rancher to balance services that are not managed by the Rancher server?
I need to set up a lb that can handle by Rancher HA setup. I have set up a “parent” Rancher Server to handle the databases for the HA Servers. I was thinking I could set up a stack with a rancher LB service, run this on a couple of lb hosts managed by my “Rancher Parent” - and have this point to my backend Rancher servers.
The reason I need this is because we cannot use something like AWS EBS, as all of the servers we will be using are not hosted there.
I could just add HAProxy or a set of containers manually to the lb hosts - but it would be nicer to have it managed by Rancher as well.
Comments and ideas are welcome… .
