Containers created using kubernetes are always in the ContainerCreating state.

  docker, question

Run container command:

[root@master-149 ~]# kubectl run my-alpine --image=alpine --replicas=2 ping

View pods status

[root@master-149 ~]# kubectl get pods
 NAME                         READY     STATUS              RESTARTS   AGE
 my-alpine-2150523991-knzcx   0/1       ContainerCreating   0          6m
 my-alpine-2150523991-lmvv5   0/1       ContainerCreating   0          6m

Use kubectl describe pod my-alpine-2150523991-knzcx to view pod events in the process of creation, perhaps with surprise.
