OCI Oracle Kubernetes Engine (OKE) - Ngnix Load Balancer Cannot Connect (Doc ID 2789531.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 03, 2022

Applies to:

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure - Oracle Container Engine for Kubernetes - Version N/A and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When you redeploy the pods and then re-check whether they can hit the request to the Nginx controller.

Symptom - It should be in the Nginx ingress controller logs.

Result: Once re-deploying pods in a CrashLoopBackOff state, the Load Balancer (LB) can no longer connect.



Turning off worker nodes at night and restarting it during the day is a business need.

Resulted in: Load Balancer stopped responding. On looking at the Security List for the LB and Worker node subnet we noticed that the LB security list did not have egress rules for the Worker-node subnet. After manually adding the egress rule to the Load Balancer subnet, the Load Balancer traffic was back to normal.
