As of v0.40.0 of Troubleshoot, you can now use host collectors and analyzers in support bundles. These are useful when you need to debug a Kubernetes cluster that is offline, troubleshoot a kURL install that failed before the control plane was initialized, or if you need to collect and analyze information that isn’t available in in-cluster collectors.
Follow these steps to use host collectors and analyzers to troubleshoot a Kubernetes cluster that is down:
Install the support bundle binary on a host in the cluster you need to debug
NOTE: Presently, there is no method in Troubleshoot to run host collectors on remote nodes. If you have a multi-node Kubernetes cluster, you must run the support bundle binary on each node and generate a bundle for each.
Generate the support bundle
./support-bundle --interactive=false https://raw.githubusercontent.com/replicatedhq/troubleshoot-specs/main/host/cluster-down.yaml
