Remove Operator

Simply Deleting/Removing an imported cluster in the Rafay Console (i.e. Controller) does not automatically remove all artifacts associated with the Rafay Kubernetes Operator on imported clusters. Rafay provides a tool that can be used to force remove/delete all Rafay resources provisioned on imported clusters.


This utility will not delete customer deployed add-ons and workloads because these are customer managed


Run the utility provided below with the imported cluster's "bootstrap yaml" that was generated by Rafay during the import process.

./ my-cluster-bootstrap.yaml

Force Remove Script

if [ $# -lt 1 ]; then
    echo "please specify the cluster bootstrap file location as an argument"
    echo  "Usage: ./ my-cluster-bootstrap.yaml" && exit -1
