Resolved Issues

  • Issue 3154583: nsx-node-agent does not run after upgrading kernel on Kubernetes node

    After upgrading the kernel version on Kubernetes node to 5.15 or later, nsx-node-agent fails to run. Nsx-node-agent has a dependent package, pyroute2, that may not be compatible with the OS kernel and will fail to operate network interfaces. If the kernel version is 5.15 or later, the nsx-node-agent pod may crash, and pods scheduled on the node may be stuck at the ContainerCreating status. The nsx-node-agent logs will show errors such as the following:

    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "/usr/local/lib/python3.8/dist-packages/nsx_ujo/agent/agent.py", line 218, in create_interface_linux
        ip.link('del', index=index_list[0])
      File "/usr/local/lib/python3.8/dist-packages/pyroute2/iproute/linux.py", line 1358, in link
        ret = self.nlm_request(msg,
      File "/usr/local/lib/python3.8/dist-packages/pyroute2/netlink/nlsocket.py", line 376, in nlm_request
        return tuple(self._genlm_request(*argv, **kwarg))
      File "/usr/local/lib/python3.8/dist-packages/pyroute2/netlink/nlsocket.py", line 867, in nlm_request
        for msg in self.get(msg_seq=msg_seq,
      File "/usr/local/lib/python3.8/dist-packages/pyroute2/netlink/nlsocket.py", line 379, in get
        return tuple(self._genlm_get(*argv, **kwarg))
      File "/usr/local/lib/python3.8/dist-packages/pyroute2/netlink/nlsocket.py", line 704, in get
        raise msg['header']['error']
    pyroute2.netlink.exceptions.NetlinkError: (95, 'Operation not supported')

    Workaround< None. If you upgrade the kernel version, you must also upgrade the NCP version.

  • Issue 3215514: Hyperbus channel is down after cfgAgent restart on ESXi host

    Sometimes after a cfgAgent restart on ESXi host, hyperbus connection remains down. cfgAgent cannot reconnect with nsx-node-agent because nsxrpc thread in nsx-node-agent is stuck at closing the previous connection. The nsx-node-agent log has the message "Cannot convert greenlet.greenlet to gevent._gevent_c_greenlet_primitives.SwitchOutGreenletWithLoop." Hyperbus CLI command on ESXi host shows the status as "MISS_VERSION_HANDSHAKE," which means the connection is unhealthy. The nsx-node-agent CLI command "get node-agent-hyperbus status" on ContainerHost returns the message "HyperBus status: Unhealthy."

    Workaround: Restart nsx-node-agent.
