Comment 1 Andre Costa 2021-11-01 15:51:31 UTC
I have just followed the procedure to migrate from OpenshiftSDN to OVNKubernetes on OCP 4.7.32 and I'm getting the exact same issue.
After rebooting the nodes one of the interfaces is not being created, ending up with all ovnkube-node pods in CrashLoopBackOff because ovnkube-node container is unable to start on all nodes (RHCOS and RHEL):

 $ oc get pods -o wide -n openshift-ovn-kubernetes

Many other pods are in ContainerCreating state because of this.
Looking at the container the error is the same:

Looking at a master for example seems that many interfaces are not created and it looks that some from OpenshiftSDN are still present:

Comment 2 Peng Liu 2021-11-02 01:47:27 UTC
When doing the migration, did you follow the instruction of 4.7's doc or 4.8's? The procedures are different between 4.7 and 4.8.

Comment 3 Peng Liu 2021-11-03 01:52:46 UTC
It looks like a regression introduced in 4.7.18 by https://github.com/openshift/ovn-kubernetes/commit/1c28b968f1b0fb6252e7f4d3061b107d5cc498e0. Tested with both 4.7.17 and 4.7.18. The migration works with 4.7.17 but not 4.7.18.

Comment 4 Andre Costa 2021-11-03 07:25:26 UTC
I have followed the documentation for OCP 4.7.
Did with OCP 4.6.46 and everything went well. After starting the mcp the nodes got updated with the rest of the network's configuration.

Comment 11 errata-xmlrpc 2021-12-16 09:34:23 UTC
Since the problem described in this bug report should be
resolved in a recent advisory, it has been closed with a
resolution of ERRATA.

For information on the advisory (OpenShift Container Platform 4.7.40 bug fix update), and where to find the updated
files, follow the link below.

If the solution does not work for you, open a new bug report.
