Hi Simon KP, I didn’t see that issue. In fact, it is only possible if you daemonset template for aws-node doesn’t tolerate that particular taint explicitly. This wouldn’t be the default setting. At the end of the day, it is just another type of label which is taint and doesn’t impact anything.
I commited the latest working example of aws-node and you can find it -> https://github.com/marcincuber/eks/blob/master/k8s_templates/vpc-k8s-cni/aws-k8s-cni.yaml
Please let me know whether that worked for you.
