Old cluster configuration file

This document describes the two versions of configuration files use in Anthos clusters on VMware (GKE on-prem).

In Anthos clusters on VMware version 1.4, the configuration files changed substantially. The new files are called v1 configuration files. The configuration files that were used in Anthos clusters on VMware versions earlier than 1.4 are called v0 configuration files.

As of version 1.7 of Anthos clusters on VMware, the v0 configuration files are no longer supported.

Converting configuration files

To convert a v0 configuration file to a v1 admin cluster configuration file:

gkectl create-config admin --from [OLD_CONFIG_PATH] --config [OUTPUT_PATH]

where:

  • [OLD_CONFIG_PATH] is the path of your v0 configuration file.

  • [OUTPUT_PATH] is a path of your choice for the generated v1 admin cluster configuration file. If you omit this flag, gkectl names the file admin-cluster.yaml and puts it in the current directory.

To convert a v0 configuration file to a v1 user cluster configuration file:

gkectl create-config cluster --from [OLD_CONFIG_PATH] --config [OUTPUT_PATH]
  • [OLD_CONFIG_PATH] is the path of your v0 configuration file.

  • [OUTPUT_PATH] is a path of your choice for the generated v1 user cluster configuration file. If you omit this flag, gkectl names the file user-cluster.yaml and puts it in the current directory.
