1. Deploy the rke2-metrics-server helm chart on Rancher


    To deploy the rke2-metrics-server helm chart on Rancher using Pulumi, you'll need to set up your Pulumi program to interact with the Rancher2 provider. This involves instantiating a Rancher2 provider and using it to manage resources within a Rancher Kubernetes cluster.

    First, ensure you have the necessary prerequisites:

    • Pulumi CLI installed.
    • Access to a Rancher server with permissions to deploy applications.
    • Helm chart details for the rke2-metrics-server.

    Below is a detailed program in TypeScript which you can use with Pulumi. This program will deploy a Helm chart into a Rancher Kubernetes cluster. It assumes you have already configured your Pulumi credentials for interacting with Rancher.

    import * as rancher2 from "@pulumi/rancher2"; import * as pulumi from "@pulumi/pulumi"; // Create a new catalog containing Helm chart repositories on the Rancher server. // You might need to add your specific catalog URL and other parameters required for your setup. const catalog = new rancher2.CatalogV2("metrics-server-catalog", { // Add the helm chart URL here, replace `<HELM_CHART_REPO>` with the actual repository URL. url: "<HELM_CHART_REPO>", clusterId: "<CLUSTER_ID>", // Your cluster ID. }); // Deploy the rke2-metrics-server chart using the Rancher2 provider. const metricsServer = new rancher2.AppV2("rke2-metrics-server", { // Specify the namespace where you want to install the metrics server. namespace: "kube-system", // Cluster ID into which the metrics server will be deployed. clusterId: "<CLUSTER_ID>", // Repository where the chart is located, reference the name of the catalog created above. repoName: "metrics-server-catalog", // The name of the chart you want to deploy. chartName: "rke2-metrics-server", // You can specify a chart version here. chartVersion: "<CHART_VERSION>", // Define any values.yaml parameters you want to override. values: ` image: repository: <IMAGE_REPOSITORY> tag: <IMAGE_TAG> `, }); // Exporting the name of the deployed app for easy access/reference. export const metricsServerName = metricsServer.name;

    Replace placeholders like <CLUSTER_ID>, <HELM_CHART_REPO>, <CHART_VERSION>, <IMAGE_REPOSITORY>, and <IMAGE_TAG> with the actual values specific to your setup.

    This program performs the following steps:

    1. It creates a catalog in your Rancher Kubernetes cluster pointing to the rke2-metrics-server helm chart's repository.
    2. It deploys the helm chart to the specified namespace and cluster using the rancher2.AppV2 class.

    To understand more about the Rancher2 provider and the resources used in Pulumi, visit the following documentation links:

    After writing this program to a file like index.ts, you can run it using the Pulumi CLI with the following commands:

    pulumi up # To deploy the changes.

    This will initiate the deployment process of the rke2-metrics-server on your Rancher managed Kubernetes cluster.

    Make sure to check the details and configurations based on your Rancher setup and the specifics of the rke2-metrics-server chart you want to deploy. You may need to use additional properties or adjust the provided ones to match your exact requirements.
