PowerMax

You can upgrade the CSI Driver for Dell EMC PowerMax using Helm or Dell CSI Operator.

Update Driver from v1.6 to v1.7 using Helm

Steps

  1. Run git clone https://github.com/dell/csi-powermax.git to clone the git repository and get the v1.7 driver.
  2. Update values file as needed.
  3. Run the csi-install script with the option --upgrade by running: cd ../dell-csi-helm-installer && ./csi-install.sh --namespace powermax --values ./my-powermax-settings.yaml --upgrade.

NOTE:

  • If you are upgrading from a driver version that was installed using Helm v2, ensure that you install Helm3 before installing the driver.
  • To update any installation parameter after the driver has been installed, change the my-powermax-settings.yaml file and run the install script with the option --upgrade, for example: ./csi-install.sh --namespace powermax --values ./my-powermax-settings.yaml –upgrade.

Upgrade using Dell CSI Operator:

  1. Clone the Dell CSI Operator repository.

  2. Execute bash scripts/install.sh --upgrade This command will install the latest version of the operator.

Note: Dell CSI Operator version 1.4.0 and higher would install to the ‘dell-csi-operator’ namespace by default.
