1. Deploy the rke2-calico-crd helm chart on Rancher


    To deploy the rke2-calico-crd helm chart on Rancher using Pulumi, we'll need to follow a series of steps:

    1. Set up the Rancher provider: This allows us to interact with the Rancher API. It requires the URL of the Rancher instance and an API token.

    2. Create a Kubernetes cluster: Since helm charts are deployed onto a Kubernetes cluster, we need an existing Kubernetes cluster managed by Rancher.

    3. Install the Helm Chart: We will install the rke2-calico-crd helm chart on the Kubernetes cluster.

    Below is a Pulumi program written in TypeScript that outlines these steps, along with comments explaining each part of the code.

    import * as rancher2 from "@pulumi/rancher2"; import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; import * as pulumi from "@pulumi/pulumi"; // Initialize the Rancher provider with the required configuration. // You need to provide the Rancher instance URL and the API token. const rancherProvider = new rancher2.Provider("my-rancher-provider", { apiToken: "YOUR_RANCHER_API_TOKEN", apiUrl: "YOUR_RANCHER_API_URL", }); // Assume that 'rancher-cluster-id' is provided externally, e.g., from a previously created Rancher cluster. const rancherClusterId = "existing-rancher-cluster-id"; // Create a Kubernetes Provider pointing to the Rancher-managed cluster. // This uses the output properties of the Rancher cluster to configure the provider. const k8sProvider = new k8s.Provider("my-k8s-provider", { kubeconfig: rancher2.Cluster.get("cluster", rancherClusterId, { provider: rancherProvider }).kubeConfig, }, { dependsOn: [rancherProvider] }); // Deploy the rke2-calico-crd Helm chart to the cluster. const helmChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("rke2-calico-crd", { chart: "rke2-calico-crd", version: "CHART_VERSION", // specify the version of the Helm chart fetchOpts: { repo: "https://helm.rancher.io", }, }, { provider: k8sProvider }); // Export the name of the chart we installed. export const helmChartName = helmChart.metadata.apply(m => m.name);

    In the above code, replace YOUR_RANCHER_API_TOKEN and YOUR_RANCHER_API_URL with your own Rancher API credentials. Also, replace CHART_VERSION with the specific version of the rke2-calico-crd you wish to install.

    Keep in mind that you might need to add additional configurations to the chart depending on your specific needs, like setting values for the values property of the helm.v3.Chart resource. The given code assumes that the rke2-calico-crd chart is available in the Rancher helm chart repository. If it's in a different repository, adjust the repo URL accordingly.

    Note that I'm assuming there's an existing Rancher cluster identified by existing-rancher-cluster-id. If you need to create a new Rancher cluster, you would use the rancher2.Cluster resource, providing the necessary configuration according to your environment.

    This Pulumi program creates an instance of the Rancher provider, creates a Kubernetes provider that points to the existing cluster managed by Rancher, and finally, installs the Helm chart on that cluster. After running pulumi up with this program, the rke2-calico-crd helm chart will be deployed to the specified Rancher Kubernetes cluster.
