Chapter 5. Recovery for StatefulSet pods
Pods that are part of a StatefulSet have a similar issue as pods mounting ReadWriteOnce (RWO) volumes. More information is referenced in the Kubernetes resource StatefulSet considerations.
To get the pods part of a StatefulSet to re-create on the active zone after 6-8 minutes you need to force delete the pod with the same requirements (that is, OpenShift Container Platform node powered off or communication disconnected) as pods with RWO volumes.
