Create a Manifest for a Static Pod

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.

sudo vi /etc/kubernetes/manifests/example.yml

Anything under this path will be managed by kubelet.

Add the following line

apiVersion: v1
kind: Pod
  name: beebox-diagnostic
  - name: nginx
    image: nginx:1.14
    - containerPort: 80

Restart kubelet to start the static pod:

sudo systemctl restart kubelet

Now if you try to delete it will work because it’s managed by kubelet.
