kubeadm init phase

kubeadm init phase enables you to invoke atomic steps of the bootstrap 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 init phase is consistent with the kubeadm init workflow, and behind the scene both use the same code.

kubeadm init phase preflight

Using this command you can execute preflight checks on a control-plane node.

Run pre-flight checks

Synopsis

Run pre-flight checks for kubeadm init.

kubeadm init phase preflight [flags]
