Description Stephen Benjamin 2020-02-17 20:54:24 UTC
Description of problem:

Registry is not available on baremetal IPI.  The installer is stuck waiting on image-registry:

> level=info msg="Waiting up to 1h0m0s for the cluster at https://api.ostest.test.metalkube.org:6443 to initialize..."
> level=debug msg="Still waiting for the cluster to initialize: Cluster operator > image-registry has not yet reported success"
> level=debug msg="Still waiting for the cluster to initialize: Cluster operator > image-registry has not yet reported success"

The logs for image-registry operator say this:

> E0217 20:34:34.936684      12 clusteroperator.go:94] unable to sync ClusterOperatorStatusController: storage backend not configured, requeuing
> E0217 20:34:34.936831      12 controller.go:353] unable to sync: unable to get generators: storage backend not configured, requeuing

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


How reproducible:


Comment 1 Stephen Benjamin 2020-02-17 20:55:28 UTC
There may also be a secondary bug, related to this. If image-registry fails to start, the clusteroperator never gets reported.  `oc get clusteroperators` is not showing image-registry at all.

Comment 4 Udi Kalifon 2020-02-19 07:49:54 UTC
In IPI installations, the registry is initially in "Removed" state. This is by design, until the user sets up persistent storage for it: https://docs.openshift.com/container-platform/4.3/registry/configuring_registry_storage/configuring-registry-storage-baremetal.html
