Description Scott Dodson 2020-01-30 19:31:38 UTC
debugging issues with the bootstap host is hard because it's automatically removed, we should provide an option to leave it around

Comment 2 Yang Yang 2020-02-03 11:26:22 UTC
Verified with openshift-install 4.4.0-0.nightly-2020-02-03-005212

Steps of verification as below:
1. Set environment variable

2. Install an IPI cluster
[root@preserve-yangyangmerrn-1 build]# openshift-install create cluster --dir=bz
? SSH Public Key /root/.ssh/id_rsa.pub
? Platform gcp
INFO Credentials loaded from file "/root/.gcp/osServiceAccount.json" 
? Project ID openshift-qe
? Region us-central1
? Base Domain qe.gcp.devcluster.openshift.com
? Cluster Name yang
? Pull Secret [? for help]

WARNING OPENSHIFT_INSTALL_PRESERVE_BOOTSTRAP is set, not destroying bootstrap resources. Warning: this should only be used for debugging purposes, and poses a risk to cluster stability.

INFO Install complete!                            
INFO To access the cluster as the system:admin user when using 'oc', run 'export KUBECONFIG=/root/build/bz/auth/kubeconfig' 
INFO Access the OpenShift web-console here: https://console-openshift-console.apps.yang.qe.gcp.devcluster.openshift.com 
INFO Login to the console with user: kubeadmin, password: 2zT3p-mNJnJ-Z3UiL-ezPaA 

Bootstrap is kept after installation completes.

3. Destroy the cluster
After cluster destoying, bootstrap is destroyed

The test results are as expected hence moving it to verified state
