Description Sam Marland 2018-07-16 09:13:21 UTC
Description of problem:

With 2 application nodes and two pods deployed using the preferredDuringSchedulingIgnoredDuringExecution ant-affinity. No more pods can be scheduled and they fail with the following error: 0/10 nodes are available: 2 ExistingPodsAntiAffinityRulesNotMatch, 2 MatchInterPodAffinity, 8 MatchNodeSelector.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Create a basic DC from one of the inbuilt templates (.Net core). Scale it to equal the number of schedulable nodes. Try and rollout a new DC using a rolling upgrade and it will fail as it tries to scale up before scaling down.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create basic app from template, such as .Net core
2. Patch the DC with

    - weight: 1
            - key: affinity
            operator: In
            - anti

3. scale up the dc to match number of app nodes
4. Check they have been scheduled on different nodes
5. Rollout a new version of the DC, and the deployment will fail because it can't find a suitable place to schedule the new pod.

Actual results:
Failed to rollout a new rolling DC as can't schedule the new pod.

Expected results:
Should be able to schedule a new pod given we're using preferredDuringSchedulingIgnoredDuringExecution and the 'preferred' bit suggests that if it can't find a suitable host it will put it someowhere else

I have finally setup a 3.9 environment, and will try to reproduce this issue and will get back with my findings.

Hi Sam,

Today, I had created a cluster on aws and tried various things related to pod antiaffinity but can not reproduce the issue. Everything seems to be working as expected. With preferred PodAntiAffinity, pods were able to schedule always. 

I will keep my cluster running for couple of days. So if you have some time tomorrow, we could setup a bluejeans session and I would be happy to show that what steps I took to reproduce the issue and how is everything working as expected.

In case you also have your cluster running, I would be happy to see why preferred pod anti-affinity is not working on your cluster.

I am closing this bug after discussion with Sam as the issue can not be reproduced in 3.9.31 and upto 3.9.37 and latest HEAD of 3.9.
