Overriding Discovered OS Distribution

By default Konvoy will automatically discover the Operating System(OS) distribution. In certain situations your OS may be based on a supported OS, but Ansible may still report an unsupported ansible_distribution.

You can configure Konvoy to assume a different OS distribution. Valid values are CentOS, RedHat, Ubuntu, and Debian:

kind: ClusterConfiguration
apiVersion: konvoy.mesosphere.io/v1beta2
spec:
  nodePools:
    - name: worker
      operatingSystem:
        assumeDistribution: CentOS
