Configuration

Package v1alpha1 configuration file contains all the options available for configuring a machine.

To generate a set of basic configuration files, run:

talosctl gen config --version v1alpha1 <cluster name> <cluster endpoint>

This will generate a machine config for each node type, and a talosconfig for the CLI.

Config

Config defines the v1alpha1 configuration file.

version: v1alpha1
persist: true
machine: # ...
cluster: # ...

version string

Indicates the schema used to decode the contents.

Valid values:

  • v1alpha1


debug bool

Enable verbose logging to the console.

Valid values:

  • true
  • yes
  • false
  • no


persist bool

Indicates whether to pull the machine config upon every boot.

Valid values:

  • true
  • yes
  • false
  • no


machine MachineConfig

Provides machine specific configuration options.


cluster ClusterConfig

Provides cluster specific configuration options.


MachineConfig

MachineConfig represents the machine-specific config values.

Appears in:

type: controlplane
# InstallConfig represents the installation options for preparing a node.
install:
    disk: /dev/sda # The disk used for installations.
    # Allows for supplying extra kernel args via the bootloader.
    extraKernelArgs:
        - console=ttyS1
        - panic=10
    image: ghcr.io/talos-systems/installer:latest # Allows for supplying the image used to perform the installation.
    bootloader: true # Indicates if a bootloader should be installed.
    wipe: false # Indicates if the installation disk should be wiped at installation time.

type string

Defines the role of the machine within the cluster.

Init

Init node type designates the first control plane node to come up. You can think of it like a bootstrap node. This node will perform the initial steps to bootstrap the cluster -- generation of TLS assets, starting of the control plane, etc.

Control Plane

Control Plane node type designates the node as a control plane member. This means it will host etcd along with the Kubernetes master components such as API Server, Controller Manager, Scheduler.

Worker

Worker node type designates the node as a worker node. This means it will be an available compute node for scheduling workloads.

Valid values:

  • init
  • controlplane
  • join


token string

The token is used by a machine to join the PKI of the cluster. Using this token, a machine will create a certificate signing request (CSR), and request a certificate that will be used as its' identity.

Warning: It is important to ensure that this token is correct since a machine's certificate has a short TTL by default.

Examples:

token: 328hom.uqjzh6jnn2eie9oi

ca PEMEncodedCertificateAndKey

The root certificate authority of the PKI. It is composed of a base64 encoded crt and key.

Examples:

ca:
    crt: TFMwdExTMUNSVWRKVGlCRFJWSlVTVVpKUTBGVVJTMHRMUzB0Q2sxSlNVSklla05DTUhGLi4u
