Upgrading from Strimzi 0.9.0

  • Update your existing Kafka, KafkaConnect, KafkaConnectS2I, and KafkaMirrorMaker resources, as follows:
    • Add Kafka.spec.kafka.version with the value 2.0.1
    • Add KafkaConnect.spec.version with the value 2.0.1
    • Add KafkaConnectS2I.spec.version with the value 2.0.1
    • Add KafkaMirrorMaker.spec.version with the value 2.0.1
  • Wait for the associated rolling updates to complete.
  • Backup the existing Cluster Operator resources:
kubectl get -l app=strimzi > strimzi-backup.yaml
  • Update the Cluster Operator. You will need to modify the installation files according to the namespace the Cluster Operator is running in. For more information, see strimzi documentation.
  • If you modified one or more environment variables in your existing Cluster Operator Deployment, edit
    install/cluster-operator/050-Deployment-cluster-operator.yaml to reflect the changes that you made.
  • When you have an updated configuration you can deploy it along with the rest of the install resources:
kubectl apply -f install/cluster-operator
  • Wait for the associated rolling updates to complete.
  • Update existing resources to cope with deprecated custom resource properties.
    • If you have Kafka resources that specify Kafka.spec.topicOperator, rewrite them to use Kafka.spec.entityOperator.topicOperator instead.
