Upgrade PX-Central on-premises

If you’ve installed PX-Central using Helm, you can use Helm to upgrade it as well.


You must have PX-Central with a Helm-based install.


Follow the steps in this section to upgrade PX-Central using Helm.

  1. Update your Helm repos:

    helm repo update
  2. Retrieve all custom values you used during install. Enter the following helm get values command to generate a YAML file, adjusting the values of the <namespace> and <release-name> parameters to match your environment:

    helm get values --namespace <docs-namespace> <release-name> -o yaml > values.yaml
            defaultPassword: examplePassword
            defaultUsername: exampleUser
    operatorToChartUpgrade: true
        enabled: true
        storageClassName: px-sc
        orgName: exampleOrg
    pxcentralDBPassword: exampleDbPassword

    Note the following about this example output:

    • The persistentStorage.storageClassName field displays the name of your storage class (px-sc).
    • The persistentStorage.enabled: true field indicates that persistent storage is enabled.
    • The pxbackup.orgName field displays the name of your organization (my-organization)
  3. Delete the post install hook job:

    kubectl delete job pxcentral-post-install-hook --namespace <namespace>
  4. Run the helm upgrade command, using the -f flag to pass the custom values.yaml file you generated above and replacing <namespace> with your namespace:

    helm upgrade px-backup portworx/px-backup --namespace <namespace>  -f values.yaml
