Default CatalogSources deployed by marketplace do not have toleration for tainted nodes

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • If all the nodes are tainted and masters are kept unschedulable, the default Catalog Source pods remain in pending state due to missing tolerations:

    $ oc get pods -n openshift-marketplace
    NAME                                   READY       STATUS    RESTARTS    AGE    NODE
    certified-operators-4r2rv              1/1         Pending     0          5s   <none>
