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

For native clusters, if the CSE server contains Kubernetes templates with later 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 VMware Cloud Director Container Service Extension Documentation.

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