Cannot upgrade engine

I have a couple of volumes v0.8.1. I now want to upgrade the engine to 1.0.0 using the UI. On some of the volumes it worked well. Some others do not upgrade. Where can I see the root cause of this? How can I upgrade?


Please follow the instruction on to upgrade to 1.0.0. Only offline upgrade is supported for this release, so please scale down the workload for upgrade. You can see the instructions for details.

I followed instructions. The PVs are detached (as seen in the Longhorn UI). Still no success.

As you mentioned offline upgrade, I am a bit puzzled reading below, which states live upgrade is supported, right?

Live upgrade is available since v0.3.3, with the exception of upgrade from v0.5.0 to v0.6.0 and v0.7.0 to v0.8.0.

Nevertheless I am a bit lost, especially as a few PVs did upgrade well.

Hi @wopl

Sorry that part of document wasn’t up to date. I’ve updated it and added v0.8.1 to v1.0.0 to the list.

o.k., fair enough. But still: the offline upgrade does not work.
The deployment has been scaled to 0. Replicaset also shows all 0. No Pods running anymore. The PVs in Longhorn-UI are detached. So all preconditions given, I assume.

I just see:

Could this be a reason for Upgrade fail?

Yes. This is not right. Can you check the pod status? e.g. kubectl -n longhorn-system get pod. I suspect the driver pod failed to deploy due to some reason.

Support Bundle sent and Bug-Issue opened.
Thanks Wolfram

Btw, this is not a concern. We’ve deprecated io.rancher.longhorn-reg.sock. It’s safe to remove it from the node. See step 4.
