Chapter 8. Post-update configuration changes for clusters backed by local storage
In Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform 4.6 and onward, the Local Storage Operator provides new custom resource types for managing local storage:
If you have incrementally upgraded to OpenShift Data Foundation version 4.9 from version 4.5 or earlier with Local Storage Operator, and these resources have not yet been created, additional configuration steps are required after an update to ensure that all features work as expected. These resource types are not automatically handled as part of an update from 4.5, and must be created manually. See Post-update configuration changes for clusters backed by local storage for instructions on creating the resources.
If you had already created these resources after upgrading from 4.5, then you do not need to create them after upgrading to 4.9.
