Requesting a persistent volume in Trident returns with an EOF error

Last Updated:

Applies to

  • Trident for Kubernetes 19.07 and higher
  • Trident for Openshift 19.07 and higher


The following error ends the PV creation attempt: Post "": EOF

Additional symptoms and behavior seen:

  • worker nodes have full connectivity and resolve all names correctly
  • /etc/resolv.conf in worker nodes have a "search domains" directive, that works as expected
  • pods running on these worker nodes will inherit options and search domains from their host, and add a ndots:5 directive
  • pods only resolve FQDNs, but when removing "ndots:5" or search domains inside the pod, the pod is able to resolve any name
  • apart from name resolution, some destinations are unreachable (ping : no route to host)
  • the kube-apiserver is slow to answer any query with kubectl
  • an ONTAPI https request test to the SVM shows that it's responding normally to, for example a system-get-version API call (*)
