      Epic Goal*

      To support volume provisioning and usage in multi-zonal clusters, the deployment should match certain requirements imposed by CSI driver - https://docs.vmware.com/en/VMware-vSphere-Container-Storage-Plug-in/3.0/vmware-vsphere-csp-getting-started/GUID-4E5F8F65-8845-44EE-9485-426186A5E546.html

      The requirements have slightly changed in 3.1.0 - https://docs.vmware.com/en/VMware-vSphere-Container-Storage-Plug-in/3.0/vmware-vsphere-csp-getting-started/GUID-162E7582-723B-4A0F-A937-3ACE82EAFD31.html

      We need to ensure that, cluster is compliant with topology requirement and if not, vsphere-problem-detector should detect invalid configuration and create warnings and alerts.

      What is our purpose in implementing this?  What new capability will be available to customers?

      Why is this important? (mandatory)

      This is important because clusters could be misconfigured and it will be tricky to detect if volume provisioning is not working because of misconfiguration or there are some other errors. Having a way to validate customer's topology will ensure that we have right topology.

      We already have checks in VPD, but we need to enhance those checks to ensure we are compliant.

      Scenarios (mandatory)

      In 4.15: make cluster Upgradeable=False when:

      • Customer has deployed OCP in multizonal clusters and has forgot to tag compute clusters.
      • Customer has deployed OCP in multizonal clusters and has tagged compute clusters as well as hosts.

      4.16: mark the cluster degraded in the conditions above.

      These scenarios will result in invalid cluster configuration.
      Dependencies (internal and external) (mandatory)

      • No dependencies on other teams.

      Contributing Teams(and contacts) (mandatory) 

      Our expectation is that teams would modify the list below to fit the epic. Some epics may not need all the default groups but what is included here should accurately reflect who will be involved in delivering the epic.

      • Development - 
      • Documentation -
      • QE - 
      • PX - 
      • Others -

      Acceptance Criteria (optional)

      Provide some (testable) examples of how we will know if we have achieved the epic goal.  

      Drawbacks or Risk (optional)

      Reasons we should consider NOT doing this such as: limited audience for the feature, feature will be superseded by other work that is planned, resulting feature will introduce substantial administrative complexity or user confusion, etc.

      Done - Checklist (mandatory)

      The following points apply to all epics and are what the OpenShift team believes are the minimum set of criteria that epics should meet for us to consider them potentially shippable. We request that epic owners modify this list to reflect the work to be completed in order to produce something that is potentially shippable.

      • CI Testing -  Basic e2e automationTests are merged and completing successfully
      • Documentation - Content development is complete.
      • QE - Test scenarios are written and executed successfully.
      • Technical Enablement - Slides are complete (if requested by PLM)
      • Engineering Stories Merged
      • All associated work items with the Epic are closed
      • Epic status should be “Release Pending”
