Chapter 7. Upgrading the Migration Toolkit for Virtualization

You can upgrade the MTV Operator by using the OpenShift Container Platform web console to install the new version.

Note

You must upgrade to the next release without skipping a release, for example, from 2.0 to 2.1 or from 2.1 to 2.2.

Procedure

  1. In the OCP web console, click OperatorsInstalled OperatorsMigration Tookit for Virtualization OperatorSubscription.
  2. Change the update channel to release-v2.2.0.

    See Changing update channel in the OpenShift Container Platform documentation.

  3. Confirm that Upgrade status changes from Up to date to Upgrade available. If it does not, restart the CatalogSource pod:

    1. Note the catalog source, for example, redhat-operators.
    2. From the command line, retrieve the catalog source pod:

      $ oc get pod -n openshift-marketplace | grep <catalog_source> 1
      1 1 1
      Specify the catalog source, for example, redhat-operators.
    3. Delete the pod:

      $ oc delete pod -n openshift-marketplace <catalog_source_pod>

      Upgrade status changes from Up to date to Upgrade available.

      If you set Update approval on the Subscriptions tab to Automatic, the upgrade starts automatically.

  4. If you set Update approval on the Subscriptions tab to Manual, approve the upgrade.

    See Manually approving a pending upgrade in the OpenShift Container Platform documentation.

  5. Verify that the forklift-ui pod is in a Ready state before you log in to the web console:
