Pods deployed on control node

I have a deployment and tried scaling it up to 3 pods, There are two pods that are deployed on the worker nodes and 1 pod that is deployed on the control node, Is that common or do we need to set some flag so that the control node does not have any pods related to the deployment.



  • Hi @jwalitha,

    You can revisit the step in lab 3 where the master taint was removed. Although not a production environment approach, this technique it is used in some development environments in order to gain access to control plane node resources in addition to any worker node resources.

    So we deliberately removed that "flag", but typically a master node(s) will remain tainted and that will prevent client workload from being scheduled on any node where the master taint is found.


  • Thank you @chrispokorni
