Why doesn't my SM start?
Several prerequisites must be complete before an SM can start.
- Node labels - an SM will only start on a node that is labeled with:
- Storage Class - an SM will only start if it finds a valid storage class, you need to ensure that the storage class in the SM template has a valid value
- PV definition - an SM can only start if it can bind to a PV, you need to ensure that the PVs (Persistent Volumes) have been defined by the cluster admins.
- Existing PV Claim - if a current pod already has a PVC (Persistent Volume Claim) on the PV that an SM needs, then a new SM cannot start until the existing PVC is released.
- Existing database - if the database already exists.
- Existing archive(s) - if there is a current archive(s) by that name and path that you are trying to create
