Applications with 2 pods are facing downtime during OCP 4.x nodes reboot triggered by RHCOS changes through MCO.

Solution Verified - Updated -

  • Node reboot is so quick that the second node pods are evicted even before 1st node evicted pods are ready on other nodes. In the case of 2 pods applications, this caused downtime.
