Update a MOSK cluster to a patch release version New¶
Patch releases aim to significantly shorten the cycle of CVE fixes delivery onto your MOSK deployments to help you avoid cyber threats and data breaches.
Your management bare-metal cluster obtains patch releases automatically the same way as major releases. A new patch MOSK release version becomes available through the Container Cloud web UI after the automatic upgrade of the management cluster.
It is not possible to update between the patch releases that belong to different release series in one go. For example, you can update from MOSK 23.1.1 to 23.1.2, but you cannot immediately update from MOSK 23.1.x to 23.2.x because you need to update to the major MOSK 23.2 release first.
For the update procedure, refer to Mirantis Container Cloud Operations Guide: Update a patch Cluster release of a managed cluster.
Determine if cluster nodes need to be rebooted¶
The application of the patch releases does not require the cluster nodes reboot. Though, your cluster can contain nodes that require reboot after the last update to a major release, and this requirement will remain after update to any of the following patch releases. Therefore, Mirantis strongly recommends that you determine if there are such nodes in your cluster before you update to the next patch release and reboot them if any, as described in Step 4. Reboot the nodes with optional instance migration.
Consider pinning the Open vSwitch and Kubernetes entrypoint images¶
When applying a new patch release, Open vSwitch pods handling instance data plane may be restarted. Depending on the exact workload configuration, such as the number of virtual machines, security group configuration, and so on, the downtime may differ and take up to 5 minutes per compute host.
If you do not want the Open vSwitch pods to restart, pin the following images:
To pin the images:
Depending on the proxy configuration, the image base URL differs. To obtain the list of currently used images on the cluster, run:
kubectl -n openstack get ds openvswitch-openvswitch-vswitchd-default -o yaml |grep "image:" | sort -u
