HostPort pods lose iptables rules after node restarts or other events

Solution Unverified - Updated -


  • After the atomic-openshift-node services are restarted, iptables rules for any pods using hostport are removed
  • Pods like the router or others which listen directly on the host are suddenly inaccessible or routable at random points in time and for no clear reason.
