DeploymentConfig stuck with "Deployment config does not have minimum availability."

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • After applying a new DeploymentConfig there are no Pods being created.
  • The Deployment doesn't run and shows the following status. We don't see any other error than the "Deployment config does not have minimum availability.".
