Hi, I've migrated a Rancher K3S cluster with terraform from 3 all-in-one nodes (ctrl-plane, etcd, worker) to 3 ctrl-plane+etcd and 4 workers only Now I was expecting that the workload will only run on the workers but I see pods being scheduled on the ctrl-plane+etcd nodes as well. Is this expected? Do I need to set taints manually? If so which ones so that the normal control-plane stuff is not affected?

check if the pods that are scheduled have tolerations that allow them to run there. Some pods need to run on the control plane nodes, like CNI plugin pods etc
and check if the taints are set properly on the nodes

I don't see any taints on the control plane nodes but the "workload pods" have definetly no tolerations of any kind...
not sure who is supposed to set the taints? as said, this is a terraform deployed cluster, so I had thought the taints are added automatically...
