You can remove nodes from a cluster. Deleting a node removes the machine from the cluster. The machine information of the removed node cannot be viewed in the node list.
- Back up the data before removing a node.
- Deleting the node only removes the Elastic Compute Service (ECS) instance from the cluster. The ECS instance is not released. To release the ECS instance, go to the ECS console and manually release the instance.
Log on to the Container Service console.
Click Nodes in the left-side navigation pane.
Select the cluster where the node you want to remove resides from the Cluster list.
Click More at the right of the node you want to remove and then select Remove from the list.
In the displayed confirmation dialog box, click Confirm.
