Upgrading to Velero 1.4

Prerequisites

If you’re not yet running at least Velero v1.3, see the following:

Instructions

  1. Install the Velero v1.4 command-line interface (CLI) by following the instructions here.

    Verify that you’ve properly installed it by running:

     velero version --client-only
    

    You should see the following output:

     Client:
         Version: v1.4.0
         Git commit: <git SHA>
    
  2. Update the container image used by the Velero deployment and, optionally, the restic daemon set:

     kubectl set image deployment/velero \
         velero=velero/velero:v1.4.0 \
         --namespace velero
    
     # optional, if using the restic daemon set
     kubectl set image daemonset/restic \
         restic=velero/velero:v1.4.0 \
         --namespace velero
    
  3. Update the Velero custom resource definitions (CRDs) to include the new backup progress fields:

     velero install --crds-only --dry-run -o yaml | kubectl apply -f -
    
  4. Confirm that the deployment is up and running with the correct version by running:

     velero version
    

    You should see the following output:

     Client:
         Version: v1.4.0
         Git commit: <git SHA>
    
     Server:
         Version: v1.4.0
