Manually changing Node status

Is it possible to manually change the node status. For example, set the DiskPressure to true.
Need this to trigger something else.

Any help would be much appreciated!!
Thanks!

The status part of an object represents the current state of the object, so it is managed by Kubernetes. As far as I know, it’s not possible to update the status of an object by the user.

The status summarizes the current state of the object in the system, and is usually persisted with the object by automated processes but may be generated on the fly. At some cost and perhaps some temporary degradation in behavior, the status could be reconstructed by observation if it were lost.

Also, if you tried to set the status of an object, it seems that the API would ignore the status values provided (from community/api-conventions.md at master · kubernetes/community · GitHub ):

The PUT and POST verbs on objects MUST ignore the “status” values, to avoid accidentally overwriting the status in read-modify-write scenarios.
