I am new to Kubernetes. I have followed one document and setup master node in Kubernetes. Now I want to create a Worker node, so How can I create it? I don't know anything about to set up a worker node.

  • creating workers is documented as well

If you are running on VMs or outside of a cloud provider then manually setting this up involves several steps. The tool you will need is kubeadm (see documentation linked) and you will need to init the nodes and then kubeadm join the nodes to the master.

If you are using a cloud provider, then follow the providers documentation on how to add additional nodes.

A great guide called "Kubernetes The Hard Way" is another good resource for learning how to setup a cluster without any automated tooling.

  • I have installed a docker in a windows machine and enabled Kubernetes from there. I am using my kubernetes dashboard by running kubectl proxy command Commented Jan 31, 2020 at 6:12
  • @ankitthakkar you'll still need to add the nodes and kubeadm join is one of the ways to do that. Commented Jan 31, 2020 at 14:06
  • Is it possible to use kubeadm on windows? If yes, then how? Because I am using Kubernetes by enabling it from Docker for windows. Commented Feb 3, 2020 at 4:56
