Pods Failing After Database Deletion


After deleting a database, some of the pods stop working and produce an error. The only way I’ve found to restore functionality is by deleting the PVC and the pod. Following this, the operator is able to restore a functional cluster.

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Delete a specific database.
  2. 1-2 rs0 stop working and produce an error.
  3. Delete the problematic PVC and pod.
  4. The operator restores the cluster to a working state.


operatop 1.15.0

I would like to understand the root cause of this issue and find a solution to prevent this from happening in the future.

Which mode are you using the cluster (sharding or non-sharding) ?
