This section describes how to uninstall TrilioVault for Kubernetes (TVK)
To uninstall TrilioVault for Kubernetes, the custom resources, CRDs and the Operator must be removed from the Kubernetes cluster or namespace. There are two ways users can uninstall TVK - automated (via a Trilio provided plugin) or manually removing all the items.

Automated Uninstall

TrilioVault provides a plugin that automates the uninstall of all the resources and objects created to support the solution. The automation provides a non-interactive mode to allow unattended uninstall of the solution, and also provides an interactive mode to specifically uninstall different components. For further details, refer to the TVK Cleanup Plugin.

Manual Uninstall

Users can manually uninstall components of the TrilioVault solution. Since Trilio supports Operator Lifecycle Manager (OLM) and an upstream Helm-based operator, the steps required to uninstall TrilioVault for both types of Operators are different.

RedHat OpenShift User Interface

  1. 1.
    Delete all the custom resources associated with Trilio - Backup, Restores, Targets, Hooks, BackupPlans, ClusterBackupPlan etc.
  2. 2.
    Uninstall the TrilioVault for Kubernetes Operator - can be done directly from the OpenShift user interface console. After a successful uninstall the TrilioVault application will not be available.
  3. 3.
    Do not forget to delete the TrilioVault CRDs from the CRD page of OpenShift. Or run oc delete crds $(oc get crds | grep trilio | awk '{print $1}')from OpenShift CLI
The application is now uninstalled and you can install a newer version.

Upstream Kubernetes

Please ensure all TrilioVault Custom Resources have been deleted from the environment before proceeding. This is required for a fresh new install of TrilioVault for Kubernetes
Use the following steps to uninstall TrilioVault for Kubernetes on all other certified Kubernetes distributions where the Trilio operator was installed via Helm.
  1. 1.
    Delete all the custom resources associated with Trilio - Backup, Restores, Targets, Hooks, BackupPlans, ClusterBackupPlan etc.
  2. 2.
    Delete the TrilioVault Manager CR. When you uninstall the TVM CR, the triliovault-manager helm release will be uninstalled.
kubectl delete tvm triliovault-manager --namespace <TVK-installation-namespace>
If delete TVM CR triliovault-manager gets stuck then on another terminal, edit the TVM CR, remove the finalizer section and save it.
kubectl edit tvm triliovault-manager --namespace <TVK-installation-namespace>
Remove below section:
finalizers:
- uninstall-helm-release
This will complete the delete operation.
3. Uninstall the Helm Operator
helm uninstall triliovault-operator --namespace <TVK-installation-namespace>
4. Delete all the TrilioVault CRDs
kubectl delete crds $(oc get crds | grep trilio | awk '{print $1}')
The application is now uninstalled and you can install a newer version.
