Static pods are a great way to run a pod on a single node without the involvement of the Kubernetes control plane. In this lab, you will have a chance to exercise your knowledge of static pods by creating them in an existing cluster.
Successfully complete this lab by achieving the following learning objectives:
- Create a Manifest for a Static Pod
Create a manifest file to run the
acgorg/beebox-diagnostic:1image as a static pod. The lab cluster was built using kubeadm, and you can place manifest files in the default location for kubeadm clusters:
- Start Up the Static Pod
Restart kubelet to load the static Pod configuration immediately. Then, check the K8s API to view your static pod’s data. If you wish, you can attempt to delete the static pod with kubectl. However, this is a mirror Pod that will be immediately re-created, since static pods cannot be managed through the K8s API.
