Upgrading to Minikube v1.6.2 on Windows 10
Upgrading from v1.5.2 to v1.6.2
I feel like it’s been ages since I’ve played with Minikube. The last thing I remember is I was trying to write a post about serverless on minikube but my machine ran out of resources. I was back to pick up from where I left off but noticed there was a minikube update available so I thought I’d write a quick post to kick off the New Year!
The following commands will stop your minikube, upgrade your minikube binaries on windows, and then restarts minikube again.
choco upgrade minikube
When trying to upgrade, I ran into this error. If you didn’t know, I’m running VMWARE as my hypervisor. Based on what the screen says, I need to add the proper path to my %PATH%.
You can navigate to your system settings to edit this.
Let’s open a new shell and try it again
minikube start --vm-driver=vmware
What does it say?
Kubernetes 1.17.0 is now available
Let’s see what version we are on now, just to double check.
One more time!
minikube start --vm-driver=vmware --kubernetes-version=v1.17.0
There you have it, upgrade complete!
Now on to bigger and better things in 2020!
