kubeadm join phase

kubeadm join phase enables you to invoke atomic steps of the join process. Hence, you can let kubeadm do some of the work and you can fill in the gaps if you wish to apply customization.

kubeadm join phase is consistent with the kubeadm join workflow, and behind the scene both use the same code.

kubeadm join phase

Synopsis

Use this command to invoke single phase of the join workflow

Options inherited from parent commands

--rootfs string
[EXPERIMENTAL] The path to the 'real' host root filesystem.

kubeadm join phase preflight

Using this phase you can execute preflight checks on a joining node.

Synopsis

Run pre-flight checks for kubeadm join.
