  • The deployment object of packageserver pod is having 2 non-zero entries of replicaset in project openshift-operator-lifecycle-manager:

# oc get rs -n openshift-operator-lifecycle-manager
replicaset.apps/packageserver-xxxxxxxxxxx      2         2         1       37h
replicaset.apps/packageserver-yyyyyyyyyyy      1         1         1       9h
  • For this issue, it is expected to see that packageserver pods are getting created and terminated at a fast pace:
# oc get po -n openshift-operator-lifecycle-manager
