Description OpenShift BugZilla Robot 2021-03-23 21:39:10 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1936022 +++

Description of problem:

When the DNS operator reconciles its resources, the operator gets the DNS daemonset and service objects from the API to determine whether the operator needs to create or update these objects.  For each object, if the object does not exist, the operator creates it, and if the service does exist, the operator compares it with what the operator expects to get in order to determine whether an update is needed for that object.  In this comparison, if the API has set the default value the service's clusterIPs field or the default value for the daemonset's terminationGracePeriodSeconds field, the operator detects the update and tries to set the field field back to the empty value.  The operator should not update the daemonset or service in response to API defaulting.

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

The clusterIPs field is new in Kubernetes 1.20 (OpenShift 4.7). The terminationGracePeriodSeconds field was ignored before OpenShift 4.7.  Thus versions of OpenShift before 4.7 are unaffected by this issue.  

Steps to Reproduce:

1. Launch a new cluster.  

2. Check the DNS operator's logs:

    oc -n openshift-dns-operator logs deploy/dns-operator -c dns-operator

Actual results:

The DNS operator's logs have "updated dns daemonset" and "updated dns service" repeated over and over.  In a CI run, I see over 30 occurrences of each.  

Expected results:

The DNS operator should ignore default values that the API sets and should not log "updated dns daemonset" or "updated dns service" unless the objects are updated outside of API defaulting.

Other than a few normal "updated DNS default status" loggings from cluster starting-up process, DNS operator does not repetitively log "updated dns daemonset" or "updated dns service" as expected
