doctl kubernetes cluster node-pool replace-node <cluster-id|cluster-name> <pool-id|pool-name> <node-id> [flags]


This command deletes the specified node in the specified node pool, and then creates a new node in its place. This is useful if you suspect a node has entered an undesired state. By default the deletion will happen gracefully, and Kubernetes will drain the node of any pods before deleting it.


Option Description
--force , -f Replace node without confirmation prompt
Default: false
--help , -h Help for this command
--skip-drain Skip draining the node before replacement
Default: false
