Change replicas count of a machine pool

  1. Log in to the Container Cloud web UI with the m:kaas:namespace@operator or m:kaas:namespace@writer permissions.

  2. Switch to the required project using the Switch Project action icon located on top of the main left-side navigation panel.

  3. In the Clusters tab, click the required cluster name to open the list of machines and machine pools running on it.

  4. Next to the name of the required machine pool, click the More action icon and select Change replicas count.

  5. Set the desired replicas count and click Update.

If you increase the replicas count, additional machines are created automatically.

If you decrease the replicas count, extra machines are not deleted automatically. Therefore, manually delete extra machines from the pool to match the decreased replicas count.

Deleting a machine assigned to a pool without decreasing replicas count causes automatic machine recreation.
