This topic describes how to change the autonomous status of edge nodes.


Background information

You can change the node autonomous status through the console. Nodes have two status: autonomous and non-autonomous. When an autonomous node is disconnected from the controller, the controller would prevent operations on the node and Pods on the node would not be migrated to other nodes. This feature is applicable to edge computing scenarios where the network connection is unstable.


  1. Log on to the Container Service console.
  2. In the left-side navigation pane, choose Clusters > Nodes to go to the Nodes page.
  3. In the target cluster, select the target node and choose More > Change Autonomous Status in the Actions column.
  4. In the dialog box that appears, click OK.
    Note This example demonstrates how to enable the autonomous status for a node. You can also follow the above steps to disable the autonomous status.
