All installs of Tectonic produce an
assets.zip bundle used to bootstrap the cluster. Though this archive is used to create the initial components, it contains several useful assets for administrators concerned with cluster lifecycle.
The main use of these files is to troubleshoot failing components.
If Tectonic Identity has been misconfigured, the kubeconfig and manifests in
assets.zip can be used to regain access and reset Identity to its default configuration.
unzip assets.zip export KUBECONFIG=$PWD/assets/auth/kubeconfig kubectl apply -f ./assets/tectonic/identity-config.yaml
Administrators should take proper precautions to ensure these assets remain secure.
