Verifying the completion of your upgrade

After the database upgrade completes, you must verify that the upgrade to StorageGRID Webscale 11.0 completed successfully and make any required configuration changes to ensure that your grid is operating optimally.

About this task

The upgrade process is complete when each grid node has been upgraded, the database has been upgraded, and the StorageGRID Webscale system configuration finishes.

After the status of the Database Upgrade entry in the Upgrade Actions section is listed as complete, you may need to refresh the page or browse to another Maintenance page to trigger the Status for the upgrade as a whole to be listed as complete. Make sure to refresh the page. If the upgrade to StorageGRID Webscale 11.0 is not marked as complete, the collection of Prometheus metrics will be delayed on some nodes.

This procedure asks you to re-verify some items that you checked while the database upgrade was still in progress. This is necessary to ensure that the last stages of upgrade completed successfully.

Steps

  1. Sign in to the Grid Management Interface using a supported browser.
  2. Confirm that the upgrade completed successfully.
    1. Select Maintenance > Software Upgrade.
    2. Select the Status tab, and confirm that Current Version shows the expected version and that Status is Complete.

  3. Check that the services are operating normally and that there are no alarms.
  4. Review all custom alarms to verify that they are still required and usable.
  5. Confirm that client connections to the StorageGRID Webscale system are operating as expected.
  6. Review your active ILM policy, and confirm the status of ILM rules.
    After the upgrade completes, warning icons warning icon indicate any legacy ILM rules (ILM rules that were created before StorageGRID Webscale 10.3). Legacy rules in active policies will continue to work as expected after you upgrade to version 11.0. However, these rules are now deprecated and cannot be edited. See "Managing legacy ILM rules" to learn how to recreate or delete legacy ILM rules.
