Unable to mount volume with XFS filesystem when filesystem is full 100% on Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform

Solution In Progress - Updated -


  • We run an Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform with vSphere as cloud provider. We use vSphere volumes (vmdk) for container storage. What we've noticed lately, if the volume gets completely full and when when we restart the pod, the volume is mounted without errors, but the permissions of the mountpoint are wrong (root), so the content is not accessible from the pod.
  • docker is unable to correctly mount an XFS based volume when this is filled up to 100%.
