Create an L2 template for a Kubernetes manager node

Note

Mirantis does not recommend modifying L2 templates in use to prevent accidental cluster failures due to unsafe changes.

The list of risks posed by modifying L2 templates includes:

  • Services running on hosts cannot reconfigure automatically to switch to the new IP addresses and/or interfaces.

  • Connections between services are interrupted unexpectedly, which can cause data loss.

  • Incorrect configurations on hosts can lead to irrevocable loss of connectivity between services and unexpected cluster partition or disassembly.

According to the reference architecture, the Kubernetes manager nodes in the MOSK cluster must be connected to the following networks:

  • PXE network

  • LCM network

  • Kubernetes workloads network

Caution

If you plan to deploy MOSK cluster with the compact control plane option, skip this section entirely and proceed with Create an L2 template for a MOSK controller node.

To create an L2 template for Kubernetes manager nodes:

  1. Create or open the mosk-l2templates.yml file that contains the L2 templates you are preparing.

  2. Add an L2 template using the following example. Adjust the values of specific parameters according to the specifications of your environment.

  3. Proceed with Create an L2 template for a MOSK controller node. The resulting L2 template will be used to render the netplan configuration for the managed cluster machines.
