Kubernetes can't remove PV/PVC stuck on terminating


User wants to delete Persistent Volume and Persistent Volume Claim from Kubernetes cluster but resources are stuck in the following state

kubectl get pvc

task-pv-claim Terminating task-pv-volume 100Gi RWO standard 3m21s

kubectl get pv

task-pv-volume 100Gi RWO Retain Terminating default/task-pv-claim standard


first make sure there are no resources uses those PV’s and PVC’s

kubectl get all

remove with force and with grace period 0

kubectl delete pvc <PVC_NAME> –grace-period=0 –force

kubectl delete pvc task-pv-claim –grace-period=0 –force
