Disabling the Operator#
Sometimes we need to stop the Operator reconciliation process.
An example of such situation is when troubleshooting and would like to test different configurations without modifying Pulp CR.
Setting the Operator as
unmanaged will stop all Operator's tasks, which means no
more reconciliation and/or reprovisioning of objects. It is like disabling the Operator.
Pulp cluster will keep running even if the Operator is
unmanaged, but no new modification
done on Pulp CR will reflect in Pulp objects.
Setting the Operator as unmanaged#
To set the Operator as unmanaged update Pulp CR:
From now on:
- any modification done on objects managed by the Operator will not be reconciled
- any removed object - managed by the Operator - will not be reprovisioned
Setting the Operator back as managed#
To set the Operator as managed again, just update Pulp CR:
It is also possible to delete the
unmanaged field, since the default value is false.
Putting back the Operator in a
managed state will:
- overwrite any modifications done while it was
- reprovision any object deleted while it was
