Troubleshooting the installer workflow

Prior to troubleshooting the installation environment, it is critical to understand the overall flow of the installer-provisioned installation on bare metal. The diagrams below provide a troubleshooting flow with a step-by-step breakdown for the environment.


Workflow 1 of 4 illustrates a troubleshooting workflow when the install-config.yaml file has errors or the Fedora CoreOS (FCOS) images are inaccessible. Troubleshooting suggestions can be found at Troubleshooting install-config.yaml.


Workflow 2 of 4 illustrates a troubleshooting workflow for bootstrap VM issues, bootstrap VMs that cannot boot up the cluster nodes, and inspecting logs. When installing a OKD cluster without the provisioning network, this workflow does not apply.
