Pods cannot be deployed when node is down on OpenShift cluster

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • Deployments for pod-xxx and pod-yyy get scheduled to a node that becomes NotReady, and the deployment is now stuck.
  • Deployment pod is stuck in an Unknown state and I can not rollout any new deployments.
  • Node became NotReady when a deployment was running on that node, now I can not deploy any new versions of my application.
