Description hgomes 2018-03-07 12:44:12 UTC
OCP v3.
Deployed on Openstack.

# Replicate the issue.
Create a ConfigMap and a DeploymentConfig using the attached template (oc new-app -f redis.yaml). This template is produced starting from the 3scale template (https://github.com/3scale/3scale-amp-openshift-templates/blob/master/amp/amp.yml)

# Expected result.
The pod is created with the ConfigMap mounted on path /etc/redis.conf.

# Actual result.
The pod fails with a RunContainerError. No issue on old nodes.

Using the oc command I can get this output:
$ oc get pod --show-all=false -o wide
NAME                     READY     STATUS              RESTARTS   AGE       IP            NODE

In the log file I get these error logs:

It works fine at OCP

Comment 2 Seth Jennings 2018-03-07 17:04:10 UTC
This is likely due to an interaction between the redis.conf using subPath

and this commit which was backported to 3.4

to fix this bz

Paul, could you take a look?

Comment 3 Seth Jennings 2018-03-07 17:10:56 UTC
The template seems weird though.

          - name: redis-config
            mountPath: /etc/redis.conf
            subPath: redis.conf
        - name: redis-config
            name: redis-config
            - key: redis.conf
              path: redis.conf

It could be an issue with the template that this fix just exposed.  It seems like a hack to mount a file into /etc without mounting over the top of /etc.

Comment 4 Seth Jennings 2018-03-07 21:13:02 UTC
I do agree that https://github.com/kubernetes/kubernetes/pull/45623 should fix
