In Windows Kubernetes clusters, available in Rancher v2.3.0 and above, the
rancher-wins service provides a method for Rancher to operate the Windows host. Whilst troubleshooting a Windows cluster issue it may be necessary to pull the logs from this service, as documented in this article.
- A Windows Kubernetes cluster provisioned by Rancher v2.3.0 and above
To pull the logs from the
rancher-wins service, execute the following command in a Powershell session on the node:
Get-EventLog -LogName Application -Source rancher-wins > wins.log
This will write the logs to the file
wins.log in the working directory, which you can then provide in your Rancher Support Ticket, for analysis.
