Upgrade Portworx on Kubernetes using the Operator
If you’re using the Portworx Operator, you can upgrade or change your Portworx version at any time by modifying the
In addition to managing a Portworx cluster, the Operator also manages the following other components in the Portworx platform:
For simplicity, the Portworx Operator handles the component upgrades without user intervention. When Portworx upgrades, the Operator upgrades the installed components to the recommended version as well.
- You must already be running Portworx through the Operator, this method will not work for other Portworx deployments.
- You must be running the latest available version of the Operator.
- For an air-gapped environment, complete the instructions in the Get the updated container images section.
Prepare Anthos environments
If you’re not running Portworx on Anthos, skip this section.
If your Portworx cluster is managing the underlying storage devices in an Anthos deployment, add the following annotation to the
StorageCluster spec to ensure that during an Anthos or a Portworx upgrade, Portworx does not failover the internal KVDB to a storageless node:
portworx.io/misc-args: "-rt_opts wait-before-retry-period-in-secs=360"
kubectl getcommand to identify your storage cluster name:
kubectl get storagecluster -n kube-system
