I might need someone who points me to the correct point of documentation ­čśÉ I opened the issue but have no idea how I can tackle it. Basically I have old user-addons and dont want to maintain them anymore with the
rancher-cluster.yaml

What happens if you remove the addons and do
rke up
?

when rke comes to the point where the user-addon provisioning starts. it starts deleting my addons. This happened to one of our clusters storagedriver (rook-ceph)

How are your addons deployed now?

1. They got deployed when we deployed the cluster initially say 1.3 2. Then they got updated via for example helm in the meantime 1.7 3. After a while we decided to upgrade the cluster and removed the user-addons 4. When running rke up, the finishing job for user-addons removes the in 1 provided addons from the cluster
@agreeable-oil-87482 any idea how i can proceed here?

Did rancher provision this cluster?
Or did you run rke up
Oh you ran rke up. I would remove the add-ons block, rke up and then reinstall from helm or your preferred method

Yeah the issue with the storage driver is that its rook, and its not recoverable after its removed. So that means that there is no way for me to achive this while i can keep my data or do the manual steps all the time when upgrading rke

Could do a backup and restore of the pvs

@agreeable-oil-87482 this is not possible. As this storage-provider only writes directly on a raw disk.
So what I just wanted to know, there is no way to just remove them from the rancher-cluster.yml and just say
ignore_user_addons: true
, right?
