Doc Text:
Feature: New configuration option "ignore-volume-az" in cloud.conf file for OpenStack has been added to let OpenShift not to create labels with zones for PersistentVolumes. Reason: OpenStack Cinder and OpenStack Nova can have different topology zones. OpenShift works exclusively with Nova zones, ignoring Cinder topology. Therefore it makes no sense to set label with Cinder zone name into PVs in case it's different to Nova zones. A Pod that uses such PV would be unschedulable by OpenShift. Result: Cluster administrators can turn off labeling of Cinder PVs and make their pods schedulable.

Description Nicolas Nosenzo 2017-10-11 12:56:41 UTC
1. Proposed title of this feature request
Add possibility to ignore volume label in dynamic provisioning

3. What is the nature and description of the request?
Currently if we create cinder volumes dynamically, the zone label is added automatically to pv [0]. After the zone label is added to volume, it means that pod cannot be started in any other zone than what label says. Volume zone label is kind of nodeselector to pod.

[0] https://github.com/kubernetes/kubernetes/blob/master/pkg/volume/cinder/cinder_util.go#L214-L216

4. Why does the customer need this? (List the business requirements here)
 I except that we could override this setting. We have use-case where we have compute zone names: zone-1, zone-2 and zone-3, but then cinder volume zone name is nova. It means that dynamic provision does not work if we do not manually always remove pv label after creation. I except that we could have possibility to not add this volume label to cinder. After that pod can be provisioned in any zone because it does not have label.

5. How would the customer like to achieve this? (List the functional requirements here)
The suggestion is to add a flag ignore-volume-label to openstack cloudprovider.conf which will override this label thing.

7. Is there already an existing RFE upstream or in Red Hat bugzilla?
Yes, there is kubernetes upstream PR for this:

Verify this issue in openshift:
oc v3.10.0-0.53.0
openshift v3.10.0-0.53.0
kubernetes v1.10.0+b81c8f8

Add the following to the openstack could provider file and restart api and controllers:
ignore-volume-az = yes

Create a dynamic PVC, zone label still exist.

ignore-volume-az = yes
