If you're looking to create persistent volumes in Kubernetes without setting nodeAffinity, setup your PV config like this:
--- apiVersion: v1 kind: PersistentVolume metadata: name:
labels: type: local spec: capacity: storage: 10Gi accessModes: - ReadWriteOnce persistentVolumeReclaimPolicy: Retain storageClassName: local-path hostPath: path: /opt/data/
Note how we are using the labels key under metadata as well as changing path under spec to hostPath.
Hope this helps! I was stuck on it for a while. This is useful for single node K8s setups where you are only storing data locally (on the one host).
