/kind bug
/sig api-machinery

What happened:
kubectl logs is not always able to retrieve the logs of pods
What you expected to happen:
kubectl logs would show the logs of running pods
How to reproduce it (as minimally and precisely as possible):

kubectl get pods -n kube-system
NAME                                    READY     STATUS    RESTARTS   AGE
heapster-dfd674df9-r49f9                1/1       Running   0          5m
kube-dns-5d585466b5-ghxk2               3/3       Running   0          4h
kubernetes-dashboard-7494579689-tbwln   1/1       Running   0          5m

monitoring-influxdb-6c4b84d695-7452w    1/1       Running   0          5m
tiller-deploy-8dc84bcc8-9brjg           1/1       Running   0          3h
kubectl -n kube-system logs heapster-dfd674df9-r49f9
Error from server (NotFound): the server could not find the requested resource ( pods/log heapster-dfd674df9-r49f9)

Anything else we need to know?:
This is a new installation of kubernetes 1.9.0 ( the master and three nodes are running 1.9.0).
Even though it is not possible to see the logs the containers seem to run fine.
Logs can be viewed on the nodes that hold the containers by running docker logs.
Some of the pod logs can be viewed

This was caused by a mis-configuration in the kubelet configuration on two nodes. --hostname-override pointed to a single node name

No, it was just a misconfiguration, all the nodes had a hostname-override pointing to the same node therefore preventing the retrieval of the logs
