Minimum number of IP address when installing AKS on HCI

Lisa Lownds 66 Reputation points

I'm looking to install AKS on HCI and don't have the 256 IP addresses recommended at plus this is only a single node install. I plan to use DHCP for my virtual network configuration.

Given my lack of addresses, how small can I make the following:

  1. K8sNodeIpPool start and end addresses?
  2. vipPoolStart - vipPoolEnd addresses?

    Hi @Lisa Lownds ,

    I think that is the recommendation of 256 IP addresses, however for your single node AKS you can get away with 15 IP addresses at a max. Check the scenario listed in this article as Jane is planning to deploy a AKS node cluster and she is using up around 32 IPs.


    Hope this helps.
