MountVolume.MountDevice failed for volume "pvc": rpc error: code = Internal desc = could not format "/dev/xvdac", mount failed: exit status 32, mount(2) system call failed: File exists.


I have my kubernetes cluster on aws instances, spinned up using kubedadm. I am using aws-ebs to allocate persisntant volumes to my redis pods. While spinning up the pod and attach pvs to the pods, they are being created on volumes and getting attached to the instance but they are not getting mounted to the pods. looks like only one pvc is not getting attached. I am not able to understand why and how. I am using t2.xlarge instances. calico network plugin.

FINALLY FOUND THE ISSUE: Output: mount: /var/lib/kubelet/plugins/ mount(2) system call failed: File exists.

This part of the error is important. So, i spun up a pod to use a pvc to test the allocation of the volume. and then i deleted the pvc. it is in terminating stage. I never gave much thought to it.

Then after getting stressed over it for 10hrs. and restarting it after 5hrs helped me to think calm. so i saw that a pod is still running that is using the ebs claim, I deleted the pod and then the pvc. immediately the volume got allocated to redis pod and the redis pods are running.
