Checking the cluster’s compliance for security or hidden problems is meanwhile a standard task. There are automated tools to do the job such as VMware Skyline or Runecast Analyzer. In addition to standard vSphere clusters, the latter can also check vSAN, NSX-T, AWS, Kubernetes and, since version 5.0, Azure for compliance.
In this blog post I’d like to outline how to connect a vSphere with Tanzu [*] environment to Runcast Analyzer. [* native Kubernetes Pods and TKG on vSphere]
Some steps are simplified because it is a Lab environment. I will point this out at the given point.
Before we can register Tanzu in Runecast Analyzer, we need some information.
- IP address or FQDN of the SupervisorControlPlane
- Service account with access to the SupervisorControlPlane
- Service account access token
