Version: Operator 2.2.1

Upgrade operator 2.2.0 to 2.2.1 using Helm


  • Helm 3.x

Upgrade CRD

Helm 3.x does not support the upgrade of CRDs. You will need to manually upgrade CRD.

Replace the old CRD with the new CRD:


Do not remove the old CRD. This deletes all the Aerospike clusters. Do not use kubectl replace with the --force flag as this also deletes all the Aerospike clusters.

kubectl replace -f

Get the helm chart

To get the Helm chart, clone the aerospike/aerospike-kubernetes-operator repository.

git clone
git checkout 2.2.1

The charts are in the aerospike-kubernetes-operator/helm-charts folder.

cd aerospike-kubernetes-operator/helm-charts

Upgrade Operator

Run the following command:

helm upgrade aerospike-kubernetes-operator ./aerospike-kubernetes-operator

Check Operator Logs

The Operator runs as two replicas by default, for higher availability. Run the following command to follow the logs for the Operator pods.

kubectl -n openshift-operators logs -f deployment/aerospike-kubernetes-operator manager
