This topic introduces managed-kube-proxy-windows, describes how to use managed-kube-proxy-windows, and lists the latest changes to managed-kube-proxy-windows.

Introduction

managed-kube-proxy-windows is a containerized kube-proxy used by professional Kubernetes clusters. managed-kube-proxy-windows manages the endpoints of Services on Windows nodes, including internal endpoints and external endpoints.

Usage notes

When the system creates a professional Kubernetes cluster, managed-kube-proxy-windows is automatically deployed as a DaemonSet in the cluster. managed-kube-proxy-windows is dependent on the privileged proxy processes on Windows nodes. managed-kube-proxy-windows can be deployed only on Windows nodes that are added with the window.alibabacloud.com/deployment-topology=2.0 label. By default, the window.alibabacloud.com/deployment-topology=2.0 label is added to a Windows node when the node is created.

If your cluster does not contain Windows nodes or the Windows nodes in your cluster are not added with the window.alibabacloud.com/deployment-topology=2.0 label, no pod replicas are provisioned for managed-kube-proxy-windows.

If no pod replicas are provisioned for managed-kube-proxy-windows on a Windows node that is added with the window.alibabacloud.com/deployment-topology=2.0 label, you must manually install managed-kube-proxy-windows.
