openshift cli adm manage-node — Manage nodes — list pods, evacuate, or mark ready


openshift cli adm manage-node [Options]


Manage nodes

This command provides common operations on nodes for administrators.

schedulable: Marking node schedulable will allow pods to be schedulable on the node and marking node unschedulable will block pods to be scheduled on the node.

evacuate: Migrate all/selected pod on the provided nodes.

list-pods: List all/selected pods on given/selected nodes. It can list the output in json/yaml format.



If true, ignore any errors in templates when a field or map key is missing in the template. Only applies to golang and jsonpath output formats.


Show pods that will be migrated. Optional param for --evacuate


Migrate all/selected pods on the node.


Delete pods not backed by replication controller. Optional param for --evacuate


Grace period (seconds) for pods being deleted. Ignored if negative. Optional param for --evacuate


List all/selected pods on the node. Printer flags --output, etc. are only valid for this option.


When using the default or custom-column output format, don't print headers (default print headers).

-o, --output=""

Label selector to filter pods on the node. Optional param for --evacuate or --list-pods

Label selector to filter nodes. Either pass one/more nodes as arguments or use this node selector

-a, --show-all=true

When printing, show all resources (false means hide terminated pods.)


When printing, show all labels as the last column (default hide labels column)
