You can upgrade native and Tanzu Kubernetes clusters by using the Kubernetes Container Clusters plug-in.

For native clusters, if the CSE server contains Kubernetes templates with higher Kubernetes versions, you can upgrade a native cluster in VMware Cloud Director by using the Kubernetes Container Clusters plug-in. For more information on Kubernetes template management, see the Container Service Extension (CSE) documentation.

For Tanzu Kubernetes clusters, if the parent supervisor cluster supports a higher Kubernetes version, you can upgrade a Tanzu Kubernetes cluster in VMware Cloud Director by using the Kubernetes Container Clusters plug-in.

    The upgrade column refreshes with information about the availability of an upgrade for the cluster. You can upgrade clusters with status Available.
