github rancher/rke2 v1.24.1+rke2r2

15 months ago

This release is RKE2's first in the v1.24 line. This release updates Kubernetes to v1.24.1.

As this release includes a number of significant changes from previous versions, we will not make v1.24 available via the stable release channel until v1.24.2+rke2r1 or later.

Before upgrading from earlier releases, be sure to read the Kubernetes Urgent Upgrade Notes.

Important Note

If your server (control-plane) nodes were not started with the --token CLI flag or config file key, a randomized token was generated during initial cluster startup. This key is used both for joining new nodes to the cluster, and for encrypting cluster bootstrap data within the datastore. Ensure that you retain a copy of this token, as is required when restoring from backup.

You may retrieve the token value from any server already joined to the cluster:

cat /var/lib/rancher/rke2/server/token
