Description Eric Jones 2018-06-26 19:54:08 UTC
Description of problem:
The Reference Architecture for installing OCP 3.9 on OSP 10 [0] indicates early on [1] that it will create a loadbalancer that will be used to direct application traffic to the router pods [2].

However, later when setting up the HAProxy [3] and the bastion host [4], we never do anything that would allow for traffic to be directed to the infra nodes.

Per my customer, we need to simply open up the iptables firewall to allow the 80 and 443 traffic through. This likely just needs to be added to the documentation (I think post install as it might be OCP install adding the iptables firewall to the loadbalancer).



[2] In order to have a single entry point for applications, a load balancer is created as part of the installation in the same Red Hat OpenStack Platform tenant where it can reach the infrastructure nodes for load balancing the incoming traffic to the routers running in the infra nodes.

More specifically the customer that Identified this issue has elaborated on what exactly they had to do to get it all working:

* Add 2 new TCP frontends & backends on the LB HAproxy, pointing to the OCP routers running on the infra nodes. These hadn't been added by the openshift-ansible installer.
* Open the LB HAProxy IPTables firewall to allow that 80/443 traffic to the OCP routers. The reference architecture already had security groups for this traffic on the LB HAProxy, but the on-VM IPTables firewall was blocking it.

Hi Eric,

I added the info on the RA to be clearer. In order to have a single entry point for applications, the load balancer either requires making changes to the existing DNS that allows for wildcards to use the Round Robin algorithm across the different infra nodes *or* the backend & frontend entries within the HAproxy instance, specifically within the /etc/haproxy/haproxy.cfg file are required.
