When we don't have the Pod's resources correctly configured we might face the need of moving a Pod to a different node. Although we could change the nodeSelector or adjust the resources to that it gets scheduled on a different node, it might urge us to fix an issue. To do so we can use kubectl drain
At the end of the day what we want it really is "drain the node of that kind of Pods". As kind of by product the node ends up being cordoned so we are sure the Pod won't be scheduled again on the same node.

Using kubectl drain you can evict pods and disabled scheduling for a node so you can proceed with some maintenance. Once this maintenance is over we will need to allow pods to be scheduled to this node, removing the SchedulingDisabled:
$ kubectl get nodes NAME STATUS ROLES AGE VERSION nauvoo.pet2cattle.com Ready control-plane,master 19d v1.20.4+k3s1 tycho.pet2cattle.com Ready,SchedulingDisabled <none> 9m25s v1.20.4+k3s1
