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 […]

How to enable and use a custom S3 or S3-compatible storage location for Data Protection backups in TMC

In my previous post, Enable and use Data Protection in TMC, I walked through the process of using the Data Protection feature in TMC to backup and restore a workload. While this works great, it has a limitation in that you must use an Amazon S3 bucket for the backup storage location. While this might

Provision and upgrade WCP clusters via TMC

In my previous post Attaching a vSphere 7.0 with Tanzu supervisor cluster to Tanzu Mission Control and creating new Tanzu Kubernetes clusters, I walked through the process of registering a vSphere 7.0 with Tanzu supervisor cluster to Tanzu Mission Control for the purpose of creating and managing workload clusters. Since then, I’ve spent some more

Attaching a vSphere 7.0 with Tanzu supervisor cluster to Tanzu Mission Control and creating new Tanzu Kubernetes clusters

Adding a Tanzu Kubernetes cluster to TMC management as an attached cluster has been possible for quite a while. You didn’t have the same level of control as you would for a cluster created by TMC on AWS but it at least provided some visibility and the policy functionality provided by TMC. As of yesterday,

How to use Tanzu Observability by Wavefront in a TMC-managed Kubernetes cluster

If you haven’t tried out Tanzu Observability by Wavefront (in TMC or otherwise), I can’t recommend it enough. I’m relatively new to it but am still finding myself amazed with the depth of understanding it can bring to any kind of data that you send to it. TMC recently introduced an integration with Tanzu Observability

Validating a Kubernetes cluster with TMC Inspections

Inspections in TMC are using Sonobuoy within the cluster to do their work. You could use Sonobuoy directly and bypass TMC but it would take a little bit of configuration that TMC handles for you…it’s really not much if you’ve got access to TMC, why bother with it? You also wouldn’t get the great UI experience that

See the effect of moving a TKG cluster from one TMC cluster group to another (and a brief look at TMC quota policies)

TMC recently added functionality for moving a cluster from one cluster group to another. Cluster groups are a logical construct in TMC that provide means of organizing Kubernetes clusters in a way that makes sense to you and then applying common policies to the clusters in the same group. You can read more about cluster
