Hi all, I am attempting to install RKE2 on GCE (testing before installing on bare-metal). When running the install script it is not able to schedule the nginx pod due to the single node having a disk pressure taint. I do see that my
file system being at 98% utilization when running
df -h
. I attached a new disk and created a new file system with a 30gb ssd. I am not seeing how to get rancher to use this new filesystem. Could someone give me any insight into what I am not understanding? Thanks

You can’t just make RKE2 use arbitrary additional disks. You should increase your root partition size when provisioning the GCE instance; or if you cant do that then uninstall rke2, partition/format/mount the additional disk at /var/lib/rancher, and then reinstall. This is all just kinda basic linux system administration stuff though.

Thanks for the response Brandon, that is helpful. The linux system administration concepts are definitely muddy waters for me. Going to adjust my script to create the new file system to use
as you mentioned.
