Backup and Restore

You may see the following cert-manager error on the destination cluster during the Suite Admin restore process. However, you can ignore this error as the module data operations function as designed on the restored cluster.  

Velero:     <none>

Cluster:  error restoring customresourcedefinitions.apiextensions.k8s.io/certificates.certmanager.k8s.io: CustomResourceDefinition.apiextensions.k8s.io "certificates.certmanager.k8s.io" is invalid: metadata.annotations[api-approved.kubernetes.io]: Required value: protected groups must have approval annotation "api-approved.kubernetes.io", see https://github.com/kubernetes/enhancements/pull/1111

Kubernetes Cluster Upgrade

Updating Modules

If you have already updated the module to Suite Admin 5.2.2, contact the CloudCenter Suite Support team for assistance with applying a required configuration change.


While you can update just the modules without upgrading the Kubernetes cluster, you will continue to see the new CloudCenter Suite 5.2 features for each module. See Update Module for additional details.

  • Before updating any module, verify that you have twice the required CPU/Memory in your cluster. A module-update scenario requires additional resources for the old pod to continue running until the new pod initializes and takes over. This additional resource requirement is temporary and only required while a module update is in progress. After the module is updated, the additional resources are no longer needed.

  • You must update the Suite Admin module before you update any other CloudCenter Suite module. 

  • Update only one module at at time. If you simultaneously update more than one module, your update process may fail due to limited resource availability. See Prepare Infrastructure for additional context.

  • You may see one or more error messages during the update process. Be aware that these messages will not affect the update itself.

See SaaS Access for FAQs on updating SaaS environments.
