I would like to know if is possible having the rancher server and a cluster on the same machine (not isolating any of them with virtual machine or dind). If possible how could I do that? As far as I know it would have some conflicts with things like the node ports.
Can someone comment on why it is not recommended to use the same K8s cluster for Rancher as well as your workloads? In planning a cluster for our production, with all HA and best practices in mind, it boggles my mind that I’d need a separate “rancher k8s” cluster? What are the practical advantages to having separate clusters?
