The error “context deadline exceeded” implies that we ran into a situation where a given action was not finished in an anticipated timeframe.
Generally, the issue occurs when Pods are stuck in Init status.
The normal error looks as shown below:
Warning FailedCreatePodSandBox 93s (x8 over 29m) kubelet, 97011e0a-f47c-4673-ace7-d6f74cde9934 Failed to create pod sandbox: rpc error: code = DeadlineExceeded desc = context deadline exceeded Normal SandboxChanged 92s (x8 over 29m) kubelet, 97011e0a-f47c-4673-ace7-d6f74cde9934 Pod sandbox changed, it will be killed and re-created.
You can also check the status of the node-agent-hyperbus by running the following nsxcli command from the node (as root user):
sudo -i /var/vcap/jobs/nsx-node-agent/bin/nsxcli “at the nsx-cli prompt, enter”: get node-agent-hyperbus status
HyperBus status: Healthy
In this situation you would see the following error instead:
% An internal error occurred
This causes a loop of DEL (delete) requests to the nsx-node-agent process
Restarting the nsx-node-agent process will resolve this error:
Use the “bosh ssh” command to access the worker node
Then, run the following commands.
sudo -i monit restart nsx-node-agent
Sit tight and wait for nsx-node-agent to restart: watch monit summary
This should resolve the issue.
