  • 1.  Tanzu Kubernetes in vSpere: additional vNIC on worker nodes

    Posted May 10, 2022 02:50 PM

    Hello,


    for a specific application we need to have spares vNIC on worker nodes.

    The tanzu in vSphere does not seems to allow such configuration.

    The VM Classes under VM Service only allow to specify CPU / memory...

    Is there any way we can spin up a k8 cluster where workers have additional vNIC ?


    Thank you!

    I found following note:

    "The VM disk size is set by the OVA template, not the VM class definition. For Tanzu Kubernetes releases, the disk size is 16GB"

    So I guess also number of vNICs is part of the OVA definitions...
    Wondering if we can "deploy" ("New VM from this template), modify the specs and "Clone as Template to Library" to a secondary "Content Library" and let vsphere fetch from that...
