The all new minty fresh "What are you up to?" thread!

I didn't go into full-blown Kubernetes out of the gate; I started with k3s, with this playlist: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kgVz4-SE...SSpJLLL90G

This video is probably the easiest "zero to k3s cluster" video to follow, and contains additional information about Rancher, which is fantastic: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X9fSMGkjtug

The ten VMs I built in the post I mentioned before were spread across three clustered Hyper-V boxes. One was a k3s server (the "leader" machine), and the other nine were k3s workers (the ones that run the containers). There was an eleventh machine I built a week or so after the others that ended up running Rancher. The first ten were running Debian Buster, and the eleventh was running Rocky Linux 8. The k3s server and Rancher VM were in one availability set, and the k3s workers were in three other availability sets, which ensures that each hypervisor runs three workers and that they get rebalanced automatically after a host is taken out of maintenance mode.

I ended up running Pi-Hole, squid, and nginx on there long-term, with several other experiments involved. Cluster has been torn down now, as we have full-blown k8s running on bare metal now.

I'm currently running AWX in MiniKube.  And going through SUSE's Up & Running K3S course.  All I plan on running in Kubernetes is AWX, but I should probably have it on more than one VM since it will be for updating machines.

Speaking of Hyper-V, Broadcom's acquisition of VMware has me worried.  They want to transition to a subscription model "quickly".  All our hosts run VMware.  I'm not a fan of Hyper-V, and unfortunately Cisco & Avaya VMs won't run on anything but VMware Sad  I can at least move our Windows & Linux VMs to Hyper-V or Proxmox though.

I enjoy Proxmox. KVM in general is excellent, but a full OpenStack deployment is my dream. I'm going to withhold judgement on the VMware situation until there's more clarity around it, but I'm also on the pessimistic side as I saw what they did to Symantec, specifically with Blue Coat.

On a side note, the free version of vmware supports GPU passthrough right???? Or do you need the pro version?

Congrats!!!!! the 12 core is freaking sweet, so you'll enjoy the 16 no issue. I love the crosshair so lemme know what you think of the X570-P

I can't boot Gentoo on my home desktop, darn secure boot for Windows 11.

Awe yissssss....

I just realized something.... I hope i have the appropriate bracket and posts to fit my TT Ring Floe 360mm AIO waterblock / pump on the new motherboard. I may have to pick up a third party Asetek compatible AM4 kit....

I wish I remembered where I put my Kindle Paperwhite. I put it someplace I could easily find it again, which was a bad idea I know. I've been reading on my Kindle Fire which is not nearly as nice Sad
