Notes to System Administrator

Upgrade from CSE 2.5.0.0b1 is not supported.

If you are upgrading to CSE 2.5.0 from any other version of CSE, and you have preexisting deployed K8s clusters, you must run the following command to preserve manageability of those clusters in CSE 2.5.0.

cse convert-cluster

This command resets the admin password of all nodes in the cluster, as well as, adds new metadata to the cluster. If nodes in the cluster are setup with ssh keys for root login, those key pairings will be preserved. The command does a force reboot of the cluster.
