The following table lists all known issues that are currently active and affecting users.

DescriptionWorkaroundPublish DateProduct Component
Sonobuoy scans fail to generate reports on airgapped Palette Edge clusters.No workaround is available.June 24, 2024Edge
Clusters configured with OpenID Connect (OIDC) at the Kubernetes layer encounter issues when authenticating with the non-admin Kubeconfig file. Kubeconfig files using OIDC to authenticate will not work if the SSL certificate is set at the OIDC provider level.Use the admin Kubeconfig file to authenticate with the cluster, as it does not use OIDC to authenticate.June 21, 2024Clusters
During the platform upgrade from Palette 4.3 to 4.4, Virtual Clusters may encounter a scenario where the pod palette-controller-manager is not upgraded to the newer version of Palette. The virtual cluster will continue to be operational, and this does not impact its functionality.Refer to the Controller Manager Pod Not Upgraded troubleshooting guide.June 15, 2024Virtual Clusters
The VerteX enterprise cluster is unable to complete backup operations.No workaround is available.June 15, 2024VerteX
Edge hosts with FIPS-compliant RHEL Operating System (OS) distribution may encounter the error where the systemd-resolved.service service enters the failed state. This prevents the nameserver from being configured, which will result in cluster deployment failure.Refer to TroubleShooting for a workaround.June 15, 2024Edge
The GKE cluster's Kubernetes pods are failing to start because the Kubernetes patch version is unavailable. This is encountered during pod restarts or node scaling operations.Deploy a new cluster and use a GKE cluster profile that does not contain a Kubernetes pack layer with a patch version. Migrate the workloads from the existing cluster to the new cluster. This is a breaking change introduced in Palette 4.4.0June 15, 2024Packs, Clusters
An issue prevents RKE2 and Palette eXtended Kubernetes (PXK) on version 1.29.4 from operating correctly with Canonical MAAS.A temporary workaround is using a version lower than 1.29.4 when using MAAS.June 15, 2024Packs, Clusters
MicroK8s does not support multi-node control plane clusters. The upgrade strategy, InPlaceUpgrade, is the only option available for use.No workaround is available.June 15, 2024Packs
Clusters using MicroK8s as the Kubernetes distribution, the control plane node fails to upgrade when using the InPlaceUpgrade strategy for sequential upgrades, such as upgrading from version 1.25.x to version 1.26.x and then to version 1.27.x.Refer to the Control Plane Node Fails to Upgrade in Sequential MicroK8s Upgrades troubleshooting guide for resolution steps.June 15, 2024Packs
Azure IaaS clusters are having issues with deployed load balancers and ingress deployments when using Kubernetes versions 1.29.0 and 1.29.4. Incoming connections time out as a result due to a lack of network path inside the cluster. Azure AKS clusters are not impacted.Use a Kubernetes version lower than 1.29.0June 12, 2024Clusters
OIDC integration with Virtual Clusters is not functional. All other operations related to Virtual Clusters are operational.No workaround is available.Jun 11, 2024Virtual Clusters
The VerteX enterprise cluster is unable to complete backup operations.No workaround is available.June 6, 2024VerteX
Deploying self-hosted Palette or VerteX to a vSphere environment fails if vCenter has standalone hosts directly under a Datacenter. Persistent Volume (PV) provisioning fails due to an upstream issue with the vSphere Container Storage Interface (CSI) for all versions before v3.2.0. Palette and VerteX use the vSphere CSI version 3.1.2 internally. The issue may also occur in workload clusters deployed on vSphere using the same vSphere CSI for storage volume provisioning.If you encounter the following error message when deploying self-hosted Palette or VerteX: 'ProvisioningFailed failed to provision volume with StorageClass "spectro-storage-class". Error: failed to fetch hosts from entity ComputeResource:domain-xyz then use the following workaround. Remove standalone hosts directly under the Datacenter from vCenter and allow the volume provisioning to complete. After the volume is provisioned, you can add the standalone hosts back. You can also use a service account that does not have access to the standalone hosts as the user that deployed Palette.May 21, 2024Self-Hosted
Conducting cluster node scaling operations on a cluster undergoing a backup can lead to issues and potential unresponsiveness.To avoid this, ensure no backup operations are in progress before scaling nodes or performing other cluster operations that change the cluster stateApril 14, 2024Clusters
Palette automatically creates an AWS security group for worker nodes using the format <cluster-name>-node. If a security group with the same name already exists in the VPC, the cluster creation process fails.To avoid this, ensure that no security group with the same name exists in the VPC before creating a cluster.April 14, 2024Clusters
K3s version 1.27.7 has been marked as Deprecated. This version has a known issue that causes clusters to crash.Upgrade to a newer version of K3s to avoid the issue, such as versions 1.26.12, 1.28.5, and 1.27.11. You can learn more about the issue in the K3s GitHub issue page.April 14, 2024Packs, Clusters
When deploying a multi-node AWS EKS cluster with the Container Network Interface (CNI) Calico, the cluster deployment fails.A workaround is to use the AWS VPC CNI in the interim while the issue is resolved.April 14, 2024Packs, Clusters
If a Kubernetes cluster deployed onto VMware is deleted, and later re-created with the same name, the cluster creation process fails. The issue is caused by existing resources remaining inside the PCG, or the System PCG, that are not cleaned up during the cluster deletion process.Refer to the VMware Resources Remain After Cluster Deletion troubleshooting guide for resolution steps.April 14, 2024Clusters
In a VMware environment, self-hosted Palette instances do not receive a unique cluster ID when deployed, which can cause issues during a node repave event, such as a Kubernetes version upgrade. Specifically, Persistent Volumes (PVs) and Persistent Volume Claims (PVCs) will experience start problems due to the lack of a unique cluster ID.To resolve this issue, refer to the Volume Attachment Errors Volume in VMware Environment troubleshooting guide.April 14, 2024Self-Hosted
Day-2 operations related to infrastructure changes, such as modifying the node size and count, when using MicroK8s are not taking effect.No workaround is available.April 14, 2024Packs, Clusters
If a cluster that uses the Rook-Ceph pack experiences network issues, it's possible for the file mount to become and remain unavailable even after the network is restored.This a known issue disclosed in the Rook GitHub repository. To resolve this issue, refer to Rook-Ceph pack documentation.April 14, 2024Packs, Edge
Edge clusters on Edge hosts with ARM64 processors may experience instability issues that cause cluster failures.ARM64 support is limited to a specific set of Edge devices. Currently, Nvidia Jetson devices are supported.April 14, 2024Edge
During the cluster provisioning process of new edge clusters, the Palette webhook pods may not always deploy successfully, causing the cluster to be stuck in the provisioning phase. This issue does not impact deployed clusters.Review the Palette Webhook Pods Fail to Start troubleshooting guide for resolution steps.April 14, 2024Edge
