Logs of machine-api-controllers pods

Description of problem:

In Disaster Recovery CI jobs we need to remove two masters and restore etcd quorum. One of the first tasks to complete that is to destroy two master instance.

When its being done via Machine API second master on AWS won't get destroyed

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run AWS cluster
2. Remove second master via `oc delete machine/..`
3. Attempt to remove third master

Result: last removal doesn't finish, instance for this machine is still running

Info:# oc get machines -n openshift-machine-api

# oc delete machine vrutkovs-zd5lp-master-1

# oc delete machine vrutkovs-zd5lp-master-2
machine.machine.openshift.io "vrutkovs-zd5lp-master-2" deleted
<the call hangs here>

Expected results:
master-2 gets removed too

Additional info:
Machine gets `deletionTimestamp` set as expected and the object can be removed when `finalized` in the spec is removed (that, of course, won't remove AWS instance)

Comment 1 Michael Gugino 2019-04-17 18:46:37 UTC
Logic in the (upstream) cluster-api prevents the machine controller from deleting a node that it's running on itself.


This is probably a good check to have.  Logs indicate "Skipping reconciling of machine object" which is only printed for that one condition.

Comment 2 Vadim Rutkovsky 2019-04-17 20:43:52 UTC
Tested that removing other machine works, so machine-controller should show a better error message in the logs at least. Ideally it would also throw an error when machine is being removed

Comment 8 Jianwei Hou 2019-05-05 05:28:07 UTC
Verified in 4.1.0-0.nightly-2019-05-04-054221

1. Setup cluster
2. Delete master-1, then master-2

On deleting master-2, the `oc delete machine/...` hangs. Controller logged:
I0505 05:24:08.364167       1 controller.go:226] Machine "jhou1-j4fzc-master-1" deletion successful

I0505 05:24:18.686346       1 controller.go:292] Machine "jhou1-j4fzc-master-2" in namespace "openshift-machine-api" doesn't specify "cluster.k8s.io/cluster-name" label, assuming nil cluster

Cancel the delete command, the master-2 machine is not deleted.
