When you deploy Rancher and use it to provision clusters, Rancher installs its components on the nodes you use. There are two contexts in which you’d remove Rancher from a Kubernetes cluster node.
- Removing Rancher from Your Rancher Server Nodes: In this context, you are removing Rancher from the Kubernetes cluster that you configured for your Rancher installation. This can be done using System Tools.
- Removing Rancher Components from Rancher Launched Kubernetes Clusters: In this context, you are removing Rancher components from Kubernetes clusters that you launched using Rancher.
