Azure Kubernete Services (AKS) DIFFERENT of Azure Container Services with Kubernetes (ACS)

Hi,

I'm planning to install OneAgent to monitor Kubernetes on Azure Kubernetes Services (AKS), but in product documentation (https://www.dynatrace.com/support/help/shortlink/a...) I just find procedure to Azure Container Services with Kubernetes (ACS) that is completely different than AKS.

ACS have a master server that is managed by customer, and in AKS, Microsoft manages the Master server.

In this documentation, is requested to enable OneAgent extention and 2 data is required:

"<resource group name>" and "<VM name>"

In ACS, I have VMs, but in AKS I just have nodes, not VMs. Question 1: This command is valid to nodes too?

If answer for question 1 is yes, we came to Question 2: I have an auto-scaling enabled, in this scenario, new nodes can be added automatically, how to enable OneAgent extension for all new nodes, auto-scaling can add to my environment?

According to this blog (https://www.dynatrace.com/news/blog/managed-kubernetes-azure-check/) from @Katalin Varga, ACS now is AKS, but both services are quite different, specially to who manage VM Master Server, as I mentioned above.

I have the same question, but I am guessing that we should use the "normal" kubernetes deployement to handle the scaling.

This is a naming glitch within the documentation between ACS for Kubernetes and AKS.

For AKS you can install the OneAgent on the compute nodes via the VM-Extension or (even manually) but the preferred way is the kubernetes native operator-rollout mechanism: https://www.dynatrace.com/support/help/technology-...
