Restrict services deployment to Swarm worker nodes

To keep manager nodes performant, it is necessary at times to restrict service deployment to Swarm worker nodes.

To restrict services deployment to Swarm worker nodes:

  1. Log in to the MKE web UI with administrator credentials.

  2. Click the user name at the top of the navigation menu.

  3. Navigate to Admin Settings > Orchestration.

  4. Under Container Scheduling, toggle all of the sliders to the left to restrict the deployment only to worker nodes.


Creating a grant with the Scheduler role against the / collection takes precedence over any other grants with Node Schedule on subcollections.
