github rancher/rke2 v1.26.5+rke2r1

4 months ago

This release updates Kubernetes to v1.26.5, and fixes a number of issues.

Important Note

  1. 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
  1. Many systems have updated their packages with newer version of container-selinux (> v2.191.0) which is incompatible with our rke2-selinux policy and require a change in policy. We have updated our policy; you will notice the rke2-selinux package being upgraded from version v0.11.1 to newer version v0.12.0.
