Creating Kontena Nodes on AWS EC2

The following instructions are designed for those who want to create Kontena Nodes using the Kontena CLI built-in provision tool. It is also possible to create Kontena Nodes manually.

Prerequisites

Create Kontena Node

$ kontena aws node create

Restart Kontena Node

$ kontena aws node restart <NAME>

Terminate Kontena Node

$ kontena aws node terminate <NAME>

Update Kontena Node

By default, Kontena Nodes will auto-update to the same version as Kontena Master immediately if the major or minor version changes (major.minor.x). Kontena Nodes will do a patch level auto-update only when rebooted or systemd is restarted. This auto-update process can be forced by executing the following command in every Kontena Node host:

$ sudo systemctl restart kontena-agent
