Description Douglas Schilling Landgraf 2021-01-12 02:27:18 UTC
Description of problem:

Creating a new machineset with long names was preventing proper DNS resolution of the worker node. All nodes are in Provisioning state forever until manually approve CSR`s.

Actual results:
Cluster working but machines in a not correct stage and the provisioning process needs manual intervention, when it shouldn't

Expected results:
Cluster with all machines in Running stage if everything worked as planned and no manual intervention in the scaling process

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

How reproducible:

Deploy a new machineset with long name.

Example of master hostname: openshift-stage-wz4zh-master-0 (30 characters)
Example of infra hostname:  openshift-stage-wz4zh-infra-0-j6jsw (35 characters)
Example of worker hostname: openshift-stage-wz4zh-worker-0-tprn9 (36 characters)

Additional info:


Also, looks like this is also affecting the installer, similar issue happened with openstack folks regarding cluster name:


From https://github.com/openshift/installer/issues/2243 we see a long name too:
