Optional: Pivot management cluster
A guide for bootstrapping Sidero management plane
Having the Sidero cluster running inside a Docker container is not the most robust place for it, but it did make for an expedient start.
Conveniently, you can create a Kubernetes cluster in Sidero and then pivot the management plane over to it.
Start by creating a workload cluster as you have already done.
In this example, this new cluster is called
After the new cluster is available, install Sidero onto it as we did before, making sure to set all the environment variables or configuration parameters for the new management cluster first.
export SIDERO_CONTROLLER_MANAGER_API_ENDPOINT=sidero.mydomain.com export SIDERO_CONTROLLER_MANAGER_SIDEROLINK_ENDPOINT=sidero.mydomain.com clusterctl init \ --kubeconfig-context=management -i sidero -b talos -c talos
Now, you can move the database from
clusterctl move \ --kubeconfig-context=sidero-demo \ --to-kubeconfig-context=management
Delete the old Docker Management Cluster
If you created your
sidero-demo cluster using Docker as described in this
tutorial, you can now remove it:
talosctl cluster destroy --name sidero-demo
