Chapter 1. Upgrading Ambari and HDP

Ambari and the HDP Stack being managed by Ambari can be upgraded independently.

This guide provides information on:


Ambari 2.1 does not support directly upgrading from HDP 2.0 or HDP 2.1 to HDP 2.3. In order to upgrade from HDP 2.0 or HDP 2.1, you must first upgrade to HDP 2.2 using either Ambari 1.7 or 2.0. Once completed, upgrade your current Ambari to Ambari 2.1. Then, leverage Ambari 2.1 to complete the upgrade from HDP 2.2 to HDP 2.3.
