1. Deploy the mssql-linux helm chart on Rancher


    To deploy the mssql-linux Helm chart on a Kubernetes cluster managed by Rancher, we will use the Pulumi Rancher2 provider, which allows us to interact with Rancher resources. The Pulumi program below demonstrates how to deploy a Helm chart on a Rancher-managed Kubernetes cluster. You'll need a running Rancher instance, a Kubernetes cluster registered with Rancher, and Helm chart details of mssql-linux.

    Here is a step-by-step guide and a Pulumi TypeScript program that deploys the mssql-linux Helm chart:

    1. Import Necessary Libraries: We'll start by importing the necessary libraries from Pulumi and the Rancher2 provider.

    2. Configure Rancher2 Provider: The rancher2 provider needs to be configured with the necessary credentials. In this case, we'll assume that you have already set up your Pulumi configuration with Rancher access, including the API URL and token.

    3. Retrieve the Cluster: Before deploying the Helm chart, we need to get a reference to the cluster in Rancher where you want to install the chart.

    4. Deploy Helm Chart: Deploy the Helm chart by creating an rancher2.App instance. You'll need to provide the necessary parameters such as the Helm chart name, version, and any configuration options required by mssql-linux.

    Note: Before running this Pulumi program, ensure that you have the rancher2 provider installed and configured.

    import * as rancher2 from "@pulumi/rancher2"; import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // The name of the Rancher2 cluster where you want to deploy the Helm chart. const clusterName = "my-cluster"; // Fetch the cluster from Rancher using the cluster name. const cluster = rancher2.getCluster({ name: clusterName }); // Deploying the mssql-linux Helm chart to the Rancher-managed Kubernetes cluster. const mssqlLinuxApp = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("mssql-linux-app", { // Assuming there is a Helm repository that contains the mssql-linux chart, you specify the repo URL // and the chart name. chart: "mssql-linux", version: "latest", // Specify the chart version you wish to deploy. fetchOpts: { repo: "https://<helm-repo-url-where-mssql-linux-chart-is-hosted>", }, // Values to pass to the Helm chart which would typically include configuration for the mssql-linux deployment. values: { // ... specify necessary values ... } }, { provider: new k8s.Provider("k8s-provider", { kubeconfig: cluster.kubeConfig }) }); // Export the app name of the deployed mssql-linux Helm chart. export const appName = mssqlLinuxApp.name;

    This Pulumi program defines the steps required to deploy a Helm chart to a Kubernetes cluster managed by Rancher. The configuration values (values) should be replaced with the specific settings required for the mssql-linux Helm chart, including any custom settings for SQL Server. The Helm repository URL also needs to be specified where the mssql-linux chart is hosted.

    You can execute this Pulumi program by running:

    pulumi up

    This command will provision the mssql-linux Helm chart in the specified Kubernetes cluster managed by Rancher.

    Remember to replace placeholders such as <helm-repo-url-where-mssql-linux-chart-is-hosted> with actual values pertinent to your environment. If the mssql-linux Helm chart requires specific configuration parameters, you'll need to supply these inside the values property of the Chart resource.
