Changes since v20.10.0

KNOWN ISSUE: The Trident Operator that was released as part of v21.01.0, when used with Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform (OCP) 4.x, is unable to apply changes to the Trident deployment after the initial installation/upgrade. Installations that are impacted by this issue will report this error: no kind ‘ClusterRole’ is registered for version ‘\’ in scheme ’

This issue does not affect the normal functioning of Trident, only the Trident Operator. This prevents changes made to the TridentOrchestrator custom resource (CR) after the install/upgrade from taking effect. You can work around this issue by deleting the 'trident-csi' ClusterRole and 'trident-csi' ClusterRoleBinding. The operator will be able to complete the reconcile, make required changes and will also re-create the ClusterRole and ClusterRoleBinding.

All other installation methods, including tridentctl-based installs and Operator/Helm installs on non-OCP distributions are not impacted.

We are actively working on a 21.01.1 hot-fix for this issue, however at this time we ask that if you are using OpenShift Container Platform and the Trident Operator or Helm that you hold off upgrading until we release 21.01.1.

  • IMPORTANT: CSI sidecars are pulled from when the Kubernetes version is 1.17 or greater, and otherwise. Private registries are still supported and will be used without any
    modification if provided.
