  1. Pull the latest changes in this chart. If you’re using Helm dependencies, update the chart version you’re using in your requirements.yaml and run helm dependency update.

  2. Scale down

kubectl scale -n heptio-ark deploy/ark --replicas 0
  1. Migrate file structure of your backup storage according to guide
  2. Adjust your values.yaml to the new structure and naming
  3. Upgrade your deployment
helm upgrade --force --namespace heptio-ark ark ./ark

Prerequisites

Don’t forget the step to create the secret

kubectl create secret generic cloud-credentials --namespace <ARK_NAMESPACE> --from-file cloud=credentials-ark
