Description Douglas Smith 2020-08-13 19:07:37 UTC
It was reported that a user specified the "kubeconfig" (which is not required in OpenShift) option for whereabouts, using upstream instructions, and the error message was not informative.

The error message as reported:

  Multus: [some-component/something-0]: error adding container to network "something-0": delegateAdd: error invoking confAdd - "macvlan": error in getting result from AddNetwork: Error assigning IP: Unauthorized

The phrasing "unauthorized" doesn't produce any actionable output for the user.

To verify this bug, create a net-attach-def for whereabouts, and add the "kubeconfig" parameter and specify any invalid filepath.

Comment 2 Douglas Smith 2020-09-11 15:27:36 UTC
I was looking at the wrong PR, this was actually merged in: https://github.com/openshift/whereabouts-cni/pull/24

To replicate the error, you can set a "kubernetes" parameter with an invalid path, such as:

"ipam": {
  "type": "whereabouts",
  "kubernetes": { "kubeconfig": "/invalid/path" }
  "range": ""

To validate it, it should be more descriptive than just "Error assigning IP: Unauthorized"
