Upgrade CIO Volume Plugin

This guide shows the steps to upgrade the CIO docker volume plugin. Run the command sequence below on all nodes in the cluster.

List the plugin

# docker plugin ls
ID                  NAME                DESCRIPTION                                ENABLED
663a4acd7b35        cio:latest          Storidge's ContainerIO plugin for Docker   true

If the volume plugin shows as enabled, disable the plugin first to proceed.

Disable the plugin

# docker plugin disable cio

If you get the error “plugin cio:latest is in use”, use the -f or --force flag

# docker plugin disable cio -f

Using the -f flag could be disruptive to applications. See the section below for a non-disruptive upgrade.

Upgrade the plugin

# docker plugin upgrade cio


# docker plugin upgrade cio

Non-disruptive plugin upgrade

Note that using the -f or --force flag could be disruptive to the containerized application on an operating cluster, e.g. the Docker propagated mount point could be removed. An alternative way to update the plugin is to first set the cio nodes to drain state, update the plugin and then set the cio nodes back to active state to continue operation, i.e.:

  1. Run docker node update --availability drain <cio node name> to set each node to drain state
  2. Use the disable, upgrade and enable plugin commands above to update the volume plugin
  3. Run docker node update --availability active <cio node name> to set each node back to active state
