To ensure your cluster operates reliably, you should run at least 2 (two) nodes in the default node pool, as essential system services are running across this node pool. Commands to manage node pools in managed Kubernetes cluster. The Kubernetes scheduler can use taints and tolerations to restrict what workloads can run on nodes. User node pools are where you place your application-specific pods. The maximum number of pods deployable to a node. To verify the nodes first we need to download the credentials to access the API server. Label can only be set for node pools during node pool creation. To scale the number of nodes in a node pool, use the az aks node pool scale command. The Kubernetes version of the control plane and the initial node pool are set during cluster creation. You can verify this by looking at the Virtual Machine Scale Set instances. The initial number of nodes and their size (SKU) is defined when you create an AKS cluster, which creates a system node pool. I updated my Azure AKS nodepool size from within the Azure Portal to go from 2 to 4 nodes. Version of Kubernetes to upgrade the node pool to, such as "1.11.12". Declaration in Resource Manager templates falls back to the existing version defined for the node pool if used, if none is set the control plane version is used to fall back on. Update a node pool to enable/disable cluster-autoscaler or change min-count or max-count. AKS offers a separate feature to automatically scale node pools with a feature called the cluster autoscaler. If pods can't be scheduled on other node pools, those applications are unavailable. You could add a User nodepool by leveraging this command below: az aks nodepool add \ --mode User Note: for better resiliency, it’s also recommended to have at least 3 Nodes per Nodepool. Updating a node pool with the --tags parameter updates any existing tag values and appends any new tags. It’s still only in preview, but fingers crossed will be coming to General Availability soon.
