During restore steps, how do you stop and start your node in k8s cluster

I have deployed xtradb clusters in k8s env say cluster1 and cluster2
cluster1 will use for backup
cluster2 will use for restore
As a backup process, I will take backup from node1 of cluster1
successfully generates backup files

The same backup files, I will try to do restore in al the nodes of cluster2
but before this, you say that mysqld should not be running on the node. So how will you achieve stopping of mysqld in k8s deployed node?
I don’t see any option to stop the node1 k8s pod ? even if we stop then how do I access var/lib/mysql folder to copy files?

Hello @shrishail,
Please take a look at the documentation for restoring PXC Operator backups.
