Best practice to shut down a VM

It is important to stop the microk8s service before you shut down a VM used to deploy connectors. Once you start the VM, ensure you start the microk8s service again.

  1. Execute the following commands to stop the microk8s service:

  root@lubuntu-core:~# kubectl get pods -n cwpp
NAME                                 READY     STATUS     RESTARTS     AGE
connector-ztna-5454cd865c-6hhdk      1/1       Running    0            6d21h
cwpp-cicd-56d6dcc9b7-dl5cq           1/1       Running    0            6d21h
cwpp-connector-7f8kj                 1/1       Running    0            6d21h
