Copy code
mirrors:
  <http://registry.k8s.io|registry.k8s.io>:
    endpoint:
      - "<https://harbor.in.xxx.tech/registry.k8s.io>"
configs:
  "<http://registry.k8s.io|registry.k8s.io>":
    auth:
      username: robot$xxx
      password: xxxxxxxxxxx
I have checked the
config.toml
generated for containerd, and there existed an entry for
<http://registry.k8s.io|registry.k8s.io>

Copy code
endpoint:
      - "<https://harbor.in.xxx.tech/registry.k8s.io>"
This is not going to work
if you want to put a prefix on the images within the registry at
<http://harbor.in|harbor.in>.xxx.tech
you can’t just put that in the base path of the URL. The registry API is still actually at
<https://harbor.in.xxx.tech/v2>
- you need to look at applying rewrites to your mirror config. This is covered in the docs.

thank your very much. I catch the point, but I am still in confused about the rewrite rules, for which the images specified with its registry name.
for example, to override registry.k8s.io, and try to pull an image of ‘registry.k8s.io/coredns/coredns:v1.9.3’. Which rewrite rule below is correct
the first one:
Copy code
<http://registry.k8s.io|registry.k8s.io>:
    endpoint:
      - "<https://harbor.in.xxx.tech>"
    rewrite:
      "^<http://registry.k8s.io/(.*)|registry.k8s.io/(.*)>": "<http://registry.k8s.io/$1|registry.k8s.io/$1>"
the second one:
Copy code
<http://registry.k8s.io|registry.k8s.io>:
    endpoint:
      - "<https://harbor.in.xxx.tech>"
    rewrite:
      "^(.*)": "<http://registry.k8s.io/$1|registry.k8s.io/$1>"
I have figured it out, the second one is the right solution.
Another question. what shoudl I do if I want to keep the original one URL as the backoff choice. It is obviously the
rewrite
rule cannot fit for the override one and the origin one at the same time. How should I do. thanks
Copy code
<http://docker.io|docker.io>:
    endpoint
      - "<https://harbor.in.xxx.tech>"
      - "<https://hub.docker.com>"
    rewrite:
      "^(.*)": "<http://docker.io/$1|docker.io/$1>"
@creamy-pencil-82913 does rke2 have fallback behavior like you mentioned here: https://github.com/rancher/rke2/issues/915 . However under my test there isn’t any fallback behavior by default. If my private registry failed, there will be a image pull error and rke2 won’t go and find the image from the original default registry like hub.docker.io. SO should there be some special configuration to enable this feature. great thanks

Nope, containerd always falls back to the default endpoint. Not that this only helps if you're using your local registry as a mirror for another registry. If you're explicitly pulling from your registry then it can't fall back.

great thanks for your help! Is it possible to achieve fallback for local registry. I’am not explicitly pulling from my local registry, but I override e.g.
<http://docker.io|docker.io>
to use my local registry as backend, thus when I pull
kubectl run busybox
, it goes to
local_registry/library/busybox
to find the image. Is there any way to make it fallback to another backend if my local registry failed with out change the front end url, i.e.
kubectl run busybox
@creamy-pencil-82913
I found an issue that you said that containerd could fallback. https://github.com/rancher/rke2/issues/915

If you’ve configured the registries properly, it will try your endpoint first and then fall back to the docker.io default endpoint. Check the containerd.log if you are having issues.

I am confusing about the behavior, and there lacks documentation about this. I’m sorry that I still didn’t know the behavior of the fallback. If I understand your comments correctly, your two comments above describe two different behaviors about the same thing. I will appreciate you very much if you can elaborate it for me more clearly with a concrete example below:
Copy code
<http://docker.io|docker.io>:
    endpoint:
      - "<https://harbor.in.aitopia.tech>"
    rewrite:
      "^(.*)": "<http://docker.io/$1|docker.io/$1>"
what would it behave if the endpoint list in the endpoint failed. It will fallback to registry-1.docker.io the default one to pull the image, or it will failed pulling. Under my test, it’s the second one, it failed. What should I do to make it behave as the first one. Great thanks and there is few documentation about the configuration of rke2 registry. @creamy-pencil-82913
