-"oc get pods" returns many pods in Evicted status
-Unable to access to openshift console, "This page isn't working"



DX Platform 2x




In this case, the issue was caused by a capacity issue, openshift-web-console pod couldn't be created so access to openshift is not possible.

Here is a summary of the steps taken to identify the root cause:

oc login -u system:admin

oc project openshift-web-console

oc get pods

oc describe pod <webconsole-.. podname>




1. Login as admin

oc login -u system:admin

2.Temporally allow pods creation in Master - as scheduling of pods is disabled

oc get nodes

oc adm manage-node <master-name> --schedulable=true

3. Wait for a couple of minutes, then check the pod is in running state

oc project "openshift-web-console"
oc get pods

4. In parallel, switch to "default" project and verify that "router" pod is running:

oc project default
oc get pods

5. Once router and web-console pods are running, disable schedulable

oc adm manage-node <master> --schedulable=false

6. Verify access to openshift console

7. Additionally, if for example, you find many OI pods in Evicted status, you can safely remove those to better monitor the health of your system:
