How to integrate vSphere 8 with Tanzu clusters with Aria Operations for Applications

You can use the vSphere UI to get a high-level view of events in your Tanzu Kubernetes clusters, and you can use the CLI to see very detailed information. Neither of these is both comprehensive and easy though. If you have onboarded your vSphere 8 with Tanzu installation to Tanzu Mission Control (TMC) (see my […]

How to migrate a vSphere 8 with Tanzu TKG cluster from one datastore to another

If you ever have a need to move a deployed TKG cluster from one datastore to another, the process is not too difficult. The process results in new nodes being created (realized as new virtual machines on the new datastore). If you have a single worker node, or single-pod deployments, this will be a disruptive

Managing a vSphere 8 with Tanzu Workload Cluster in Tanzu Mission Control

In my previous post, Registering a vSphere 8 with Tanzu Supervisor Cluster with Tanzu Mission Control, I detailed the steps needed to register a vSphere 8 with Tanzu supervisor cluster with Tanzu Mission Control (TMC). Once this step is done, you can use TMC to manage existing Tanzu Kubernetes clusters (TKCs) created under the supervisor

Registering a vSphere 8 with Tanzu Supervisor Cluster with Tanzu Mission Control

I did a walkthrough of this process for vSphere 7 with Tanzu in my earlier post, Attaching a vSphere 7.0 with Tanzu supervisor cluster to Tanzu Mission Control and creating new Tanzu Kubernetes clusters, and the process is largely the same for vSphere 8 with Tanzu. Once you have your supervisor cluster registered as a

Using Velero in a vSphere 8 with Tanzu TKG cluster

In my earlier post, Enabling and Using the Velero Service on a vSphere 8 with Tanzu Supervisor Cluster, I walked through the process of getting the Velero service running in a vSphere 8 with Tanzu supervisor cluster. This process largely leveraged the Velero operator to ensure that all components were created properly and the Velero

Using the vSphere 8 with Tanzu Image Registry service (Harbor) in a TKG cluster

In my previous post, Installing Harbor Image Registry to a vSphere 8 with Tanzu Supervisor Cluster, I detailed the steps needed to deploy and use the Image Registry service (Harbor) in a vSphere 8 with Tanzu supervisor cluster. This same Harbor instance can be used in a TKG cluster deployed under the same supervisor cluster.

Installing Packages to a TKG cluster in vSphere 8 with Tanzu

I’ve written a few posts in the past about using packages (previously extensions) within the context of TGK clusters installed on vSphere (Upgrading from TKG 1.3 to 1.4 (including extensions) on vSphere, How to configure external-dns with Microsoft DNS in TKG 1.3 (plus Harbor and Contour), Working with TKG Extensions and Shared Services in TKG

Creating a Tanzu Kubernetes cluster in vSphere 8 with Tanzu

In my earlier post, Supervisor Cluster Namespaces and Workloads, you saw that you can run workloads in the supervisor cluster but there are some limitations. The supervisor cluster is very opinionated and you might find it difficult to get anything/everything you want to work there. With this in mind, you might find it more useful

Enabling and Using the Velero Service on a vSphere 8 with Tanzu Supervisor Cluster

I’ve written about using Velero for backing up Kubernetes workloads in the past but never in regards to vSphere with Tanzu and never having used the Velero Operator (or service as it’s called in vSphere with Tanzu). Velero can be enabled as a service at the Supervisor level and provide backup and restore functionality to

Installing Harbor Image Registry to a vSphere 8 with Tanzu Supervisor Cluster

I’ve done a number of posts related to the Harbor image registry in the past but never one on enabling the Image Registry (Harbor) service on a vSphere with Tanzu supervisor cluster. I’ve done it on older versions of vSphere with Tanzu but decided to document the process in my recent vSphere 8 with Tanzu
