You can group available node pools into tiers.

About this task

A node pool can only be added to one tier at a time. If no node pools are listed as available, they already belong to other tiers.

    The SmartPools page displays two groups: Tiers & Node Pools and Compatibilities
  2. In the Tiers & Node Pools area, click View/Edit next to the tier.
  3. In the View Tier Details page, click Edit Tier.
    The Edit Tier Details page is displayed.
  4. In the Available Node Pools list, select a node pool and click Add.
    The node pool moves to the Selected Node Pools for this Tier list.
  5. Repeat step 4 for each node pool you intend to add. When all node pools have been added, click Save Changes.
    A message informs you that the operation was successful. The View Tier Details page remains open.
  6. Click Close.
    The Tiers & Node Pools group now shows that the node pools are part of the tier.
