Post-update actions

Configure Kubernetes auditing and profiling for log rotation

After the MKE update to 3.7.8, if you are going to enable or already enabled Kubernetes auditing and profiling on your managed or management cluster, keep in mind that enabling audit log rotation requires an additional step. Set the following options in the MKE configuration file after enabling auditing and profiling:


For the configuration procedure, see MKE documentation: Configure an existing MKE cluster.

While using this procedure, replace the command to upload the newly edited MKE configuration file with the following one:

curl --silent --insecure -X PUT -H "X-UCP-Allow-Restricted-API: i-solemnly-swear-i-am-up-to-no-good" -H "accept: application/toml" -H "Authorization: Bearer $AUTHTOKEN" --upload-file 'mke-config.toml' https://$MKE_HOST/api/ucp/config-toml
  • The value for MKE_HOST has the <loadBalancerHost>:6443 format, where loadBalancerHost is the corresponding field in the cluster status.

  • The value for MKE_PASSWORD is taken from the ucp-admin-password-<clusterName> secret in the cluster namespace of the management cluster.

  • The value for MKE_USERNAME is always admin.
