IBM Connections Component Pack 6.0.0.5 iFix 1 – First impressions Customizer

The update is really easy. But I only use the customizer at the moment.

In short: remove the old pods, upload the new images to the environment and install the new pods with helm. No need to redeploy the IBM Cloud Private.
Of course, this did not work in my lab.
First after the connections-env install, the mongo-2 instance did not start. Something during the shutdown was ok, cleaning the volumen solved the issue.

Then only mongo and appregistry-client started, the rest stayed in ContainerCreating.
kubectl logs redis-server-0 -n connections did not show anything
kubectl describe pod redis-server-0 -n connections mentioned that the redis-secret-volume could not be mounted.
kubectl get secrets -n connections did not list the redis-secret. Either it had never been there before, or it must have been removed while uninstalling the 6.0.0.5 pods.
So after recreating the secret the pods started finally and my lab is back online.

One thing that seems to be fixed: CSS/JS files are now longer delivered twice to the browser.
It should now be possible to deliver svg files too.

    The removing of the 6.0.0.5 pods does not remove the secrets. They will still exist, so I am guessing at some point your secrets were removed manually?
