Can we upgrade cassandra-operator 1.1.0 to 1.5.1?

I have few questions on cass-operator upgrade. Please anyone clarify on the below ones:

1) Can we directly upgrade the operator version from 1.1.0 to 1.5.1

2) I donot see any much feature difference between the versions. I can still see, it is not supporting backup and restore one

3) As we are using cass-operator, How can we shift from existing one to k8ssandra

To upgrade the operator, you will need to apply the manifest YAML for cass-operator 1.5.1. For details, see Upgrade Cassandra Operator and related resources in Kubernetes.

There isn't a documented migration path to k8ssandra for existing clusters already using the cass-operator. I've previously logged a request to have this process documented (issue #377). Cheers!

What I understood from the link (Upgrade Cassandra Operator and related resources in Kubernetes. ), I have to first upgrade to 1.4.0 and then to 1.5.1. Is there any issue if I upgrade directly from 1.1.0 to 1.5.1.

I have deployed cass-operator-1.1.0 to 1.4.1 as suggested in that documentation. Later, I have updated to 1.5.0 . It was updated successfully. But one of my cassandra datacenter pods goes to pending state. Before that all pods are in running state.

kubectl -n cass-operator get po


cass-operator-cb985c584-wh2pp 1/1 Running 0 11m
