Alternative way of upgrading for example from 1.10.0 -> 1.11.0

Is it also allowed to upgrade like this ?

  1. Turn of mongodb cluster with → pause:true
  2. Apply cr.yaml with the new version numbers
  3. Turn on mongodb cluster with → pause:false

Hi @jamoser !

I think it should work, but the downside is that your whole cluster will be offline during upgrade.
In our tests we usually run the upgrade of the live cluster where pods are then upgraded one by one until the whole cluster is upgraded.
