If your application cluster consists of non-backup nodes (whose applications and data are not backed up by Portworx Backup), you can apply a predefined label (
portworx.io/nobackup) for such nodes. You can apply this label for all license types. Portworx Backup cluster identifies nodes with this label and excludes those nodes from the license count.
To flag a node as a non-backup node, run the following commands.
Verify whether the predefined label,
portworx.io/nobackupis associated with the node:
kubectl get nodes --show-labels|grep portworx.io/nobackup=true
If no, apply the predefined label:
kubectl label node <nodename> portworx.io/nobackup=truenote
After a node is labeled as a non-backup node, Portworx Backup skips this node for licensing and displays the reduced node count in the license page after a few minutes.
To remove the label and convert a node to a backup node later, run the below command:
kubectl label node <nodename> portworx.io/nobackup-
