Description Aleks Lazic 2017-02-06 15:15:43 UTC
Description of problem:

We have created several iscsi luns and the pv's for this luns.
We have several projects which consumed this pv's via pvc.
The 2 pods runs on 2 of the 3 nodes. This means that 2 iscsi mounts was on 1 node.

On all this nodes was iscsi sessions.

We then have scaled one pod on the node with 2 iscsi mounts down.
Now the second pod crashes because the iscsi session was also gone.

It looks like that the DetachDisk in

Makes the logout to early.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


Comment 2 Aleks Lazic 2017-02-07 09:39:17 UTC

the customer have take a deep look into the github sources and we have seen the following.

Beginning in the function DetachDisk is the fuction getDevicePrefixRefCount called


which calls the function getDevicePrefixRefCount

which calls mounter.List()


which calls listProcMounts
which calls readProcMounts twice
which calls readProcMountsFrom


Here are this lines

hash := adler32.New()
*out = append(*out, mp)
return hash.Sum32(), nil

which creates the hashes which are compared in


Based on these comparison result will the iscsiadm logout called.


We think now that the logout is called even if there still some mount on this node from running pods.

This bug needs to be cloned twice.  We need one bug for OCP 3.5, 3.4 and 3.3

Comment 16 Troy Dawson 2017-02-24 20:26:01 UTC
This has been merged into ocp and is in OCP v3.4.1.8 or newer.

Comment 18 Jianwei Hou 2017-02-27 06:03:24 UTC
Verified on 
openshift v3.3.1.15
kubernetes v1.3.0+52492b4
etcd 2.3.0+git

1. Create two Pods on same nodes and mounts same iscsi volume over same session. Make sure their only difference is the LUN number.
2. Verify Pods  are both running.
3. Delete one of the Pods.
4. The remaining Pod is still running.
