Does anyone have a opinion if you manage an AWS EKS cluster via terraform why you would would pick Generic vs EKS to import the cluster into Rancher? We are building up new EKS clusters via our own terraform and found out that in order to import them via the EKS method into Rancher requires them to have at least one managed node group. We are exploring that if we import via the Generic method might be a better way to go for us, because it allows us to runs our EKS clusters with only self managed node groups. And since we aren't using Rancher to manage our EKS cluster, we don't need that functionality.
