And why you are not using linux based containers instead?

You mean you have applications that only are able to run on Windows Servers? and not Linux/Ubuntu?

Ok so, you can do it. You just need to build your EC2 template with Windows Server and when you add some new pool node you should pick de AMI ID
EC2 Template = AMI template

hhmm..so according to the Rancher documentation, the only way to create a Kubernetes cluster with both Windows Server and Ubuntu nodes is to create a separate Kubernetes cluster for the Windows Server nodes and then set up a separate cluster for the Ubuntu nodes. Detailed information on how to create heterogeneous Kubernetes clusters with Rancher can be found at this link: https://ranchermanager.docs.rancher.com/v2.5/pages-for-subheaders/use-windows-clusters

you can have 1 custom cluster with both linux and windows worker nodes mixed.
it is already tested and working.
but i don't want to create new clusters to have windows worker nodes
i already have some ec2 provider clusters, and i want to add windows worker node in them. Is there a way to do it?
Do we have anyone from rancher team to confirm if it is officially supported by rancher?
