So I created a cluster using kubespray with vsphere as a storage plugin, it worked fine since my cluster is deployed on an ESXi hypervisor. Then I added new nodes(VMs) to the cluster, the new nodes do not run on vsphere, I deleted the storage plugin part in the “kubelet.env” file on those nodes so the kubelet can start normally.
The problems started to show when I used a storage class that is based on vsphere provider. When I create a PVC I have an error message saying that no “NO VM FOUND”
When I looked into the logs I found out that the vsphere plugin is trying to locate the new vms using theirs UUI, and since those VMs are not running on the vsphere cluster he cannot find them. and he fire an error and stop the pvc creation. even when I created the a vmdk manually and attached it to a PV the problem persiste.
is there a way to create a PVC using the vsphere storage class. with this setup ?
