Description Hiroyuki Yasuhara (Fujitsu) 2021-06-07 20:32:57 UTC
Description of problem:

  When using iRMC server for OCP baremetal ipi deployment,
  the deployment failed because inspection to worker failed.
  $ oc get bmh -A

  The following is the log information of ironic-inspector,
  this may be the reason for the failure of inspect

  The error occurs from 4.8.0-0.nightly-2021-03-19-184028,
  and it's caused by the following commit:

  This commit supports TLS for ironic and inspector.
  This seems to be the problem on OCP side, as follows.

  Whether Ironic uses tls is determined by the existence of the cert files.
  When ironic related containers start, they will first check if the certs
  exist and then generate the ironic.conf.
  If there is no cert file, the ironic.conf will be written to use no tls.
  If the certs exist, then tls will be enabled.

  When bootstrapping masters, there is no such certs and bootstrap VM also
  does not create them.
  The VM just starts ironic
  So during master deployment, ironic does not use tls.

  But during worker deployment, those cert files will be created by
  Cluster-Baremetal-Operator (CBO).
  CBO runs on master node after master deployment is completed.
  It is responsible for creating BMO, Ironic and the certs they need.
  CBO will create the certs as a k8s secret called `metal3-ironic-tls`
  and then create the metal3 deployment with mounting this secret to
  each BMO and ironic container using VolumeMount
  As a result, during worker deployment, the ironic on master will use tls.

  But the IPAs used for master and worker are the same one, they are
  set to send http request, so worker deployment will fail.
  In this case, https request is required for worker's IPA.

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:

  1. openshift-install --dir ~/clusterconfigs create manifests
  2. cp ~/ipi/99_router-replicas.yaml ~/clusterconfigs/openshift/
  3. openshift-install --dir ~/clusterconfigs --log-level debug create cluster

Actual results:

  Inspecting Worker nodes failed, and baremetal ipi deployment failed.

Expected results:

  Inspecting Worker nodes succeeds, and baremetal ipi deployment complete.

Setting blocker- as this is a continuation of https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1965168 which was triaged as blocker-

Comment 2 Fujitsu container team 2021-06-08 09:31:53 UTC
Hi Jacob,

The following may be the root cause, I think.
The certs are not mounted to the httpd container.

I confirmed that this SSL error does not occur by the following modification.
(Currently I'm testing again, including other fixes that haven't been incorporated into OCP yet.)

Regarding this modification, I'm not sure all the contents of these mounts are needed.
So I would like RH to clear which one is needed, and check this modification is reasonable or not.

Comment 3 Dmitry Tantsur 2021-06-08 11:28:02 UTC
Good catch, I think ironicTlsMount and inspectorTlsMount should be added there (credentials are probably not needed).

Comment 5 Lubov 2021-06-14 08:24:30 UTC
Cannot verify due lack of iRMC setup. The problem not happening on HPE and Dell setups. Closing as OtherQA

If the problem reproduced on iRMC, please, open/reopen
