Forming a cluster out of two or more already running MicroK8s instances is done through
the `microk8s.add-node` command. The MicroK8s instace on which this command is
run will be the master of the cluster and will host the kubernetes control plane:
> microk8s.add-node
Join node with: microk8s.join ip-172-31-20-243:25000/DDOkUupkmaBezNnMheTBqFYHLWINGDbf
If the node you are adding is not reachable through the default interface you can use one of the following:

As shown, `add-node` produces a random, single use token ("DDOkUupkmaBezNnMheTBqFYHLWINGDbf" in this example)
and displays a message on how a node is to be added to the cluster.
On the MicroK8s instance that we want to turn into a node we have to:
> microk8s.join ip-172-31-20-243:25000/DDOkUupkmaBezNnMheTBqFYHLWINGDbf

Joining a node to the cluster should only take a few seconds. Afterwards you should be able
to see the node with:
> microk8s.kubectl get no
NAME STATUS ROLES AGE VERSION Ready <none> 27s v1.15.3
ip-172-31-20-243 Ready <none> 53s v1.15.3

To remove a node from the cluster we call the `microk8s.remove` command
and provide the name of the node we want to remove:
> microk8s.remove

On the removed node we can call `microk8s.leave` so that MicroK8s starts
its own control plane and start acting as a full single node cluster:
> microk8s.leave
