Nodebalancer configuration constantly getting reset

Hi there,

I'm running a linode LKE setup with rancher

It automatically generates an linode balancer for my services. I use a script or manually place my SSL certificates into the node balancer configuration for my ports. However, when linode has connectivity issues and a node balancer goes down or a machine goes down, it seems to reset the port configuration, so I have to add my SSL certificates again.

Is there anyway to avoid this? Would I have to rely on SSL termination at the pod level?

Hi @irlanco -

From what you're describing, it sounds like you may be missing an ingress controller which manages the routing of requests to your backend cluster. We have a guides on how to configure an Nginx ingress, and how to set-up load balancing with TLS/SSL for our LKE service that you may find helpful.
