Description Yossi Boaron 2018-11-27 12:48:14 UTC
Description of problem:

Cloud-provider LoadBalancer functionality seems to be active altough '[LoadBalancer]' section is empty or not present in openstack.cfg file.

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

[openshift@master-0 ~]$ oc version
oc v3.11.44
kubernetes v1.11.0+d4cacc0
features: Basic-Auth GSSAPI Kerberos SPNEGO

openshift v3.11.44
kubernetes v1.11.0+d4cacc0
[openshift@master-0 ~]$ 

How reproducible:

run shiftstack deployment with cloud provider enabled, but without any 'LoadBalancer' option, the relevant part from OSEv3.yml file:

openshift_cloudprovider_kind: openstack
openshift_cloudprovider_openstack_auth_url: "{{ lookup('env','OS_AUTH_URL') }}"
openshift_cloudprovider_openstack_username: "{{ lookup('env','OS_USERNAME') }}"
openshift_cloudprovider_openstack_password: "{{ lookup('env','OS_PASSWORD') }}"
openshift_cloudprovider_openstack_tenant_name: "{{ lookup('env','OS_PROJECT_NAME') }}"
openshift_cloudprovider_openstack_domain_name: "{{ lookup('env','OS_USER_DOMAIN_NAME') }}"
openshift_cloudprovider_openstack_blockstorage_version: v2

Actual results:

Openstack Cloud-provider LoadBalacer functionality is active.

Checking the master controllers logs, I can see that LB function is active.
'Claiming to support LoadBalancer'

This behavior could lead to conflict in a case 'Kuryr' is configured as the SDN.

Expected results:

Openstack Cloud-provider LoadBalance functionality should be disabled.

Additional info:

Seems that this bug was resolved in K8S 1.12 upstream.
