Environment

VMware Tanzu Kubernetes Grid Plus 1.x

Cause

The machine deployment does not have the correct annotations and it is dependant on the TKG version.
TKG 1.6

kind: MachineDeployment
metadata:
  annotations:
    cluster.k8s.io/cluster-api-autoscaler-node-group-max-size: "20"
    cluster.k8s.io/cluster-api-autoscaler-node-group-min-size: "5"


TKG 2.1 and later

kind: MachineDeployment
metadata:
  annotations:
    cluster.x-k8s.io/cluster-api-autoscaler-node-group-max-size: "20"
    cluster.x-k8s.io/cluster-api-autoscaler-node-group-min-size: "5"

 

Resolution

Updated Machinedeployment with the correct annotation
