In-Place Upgrade without Ambari (Deprecated)

When using SmartSense 1.1 or 1.2, you can upgrade to SmartSense 1.4.x without uninstalling SmartSense:

  1. On the host running the HST server, stop the process:

    # hst stop
  2. Download HST 1.4.x packages from the Tools tab of the Hortonworks support portal (

  3. Upgrade binaries on the HST Server and all HST agents. The following steps assume that the HST 1.4.x package has been downloaded from the Tools tab of the Hortonworks support portal and is available on all nodes in the cluster.


    The following commands must be run on all nodes in the cluster to ensure the entire cluster is upgraded:

    • RHEL, CentOS, or SLES

      rpm -Uvh smartsense-hst-HST_VERSION.rpm
    • Ubuntu or Debian

      dpkg -i smartsense-hst-$HST_VERSION.deb
  4. After the packages are upgraded start SmartSense manually:

    # hst start
  5. Ensure that all components are upgraded by triggering a SmartSense analysis capture, and ensure that the capture finishes successfully.

  6. If you are upgrading from SmartSense 1.2.x to 1.4.x, upgrade your HST Gateway:

    • If the HST Gateway is installed on the same node as HST Server or HST Agent, then the HST Gateway will get upgraded along with them. This is true for Ambari managed and non-Ambari managed nodes.

    • If the HST Gateway is a standalone node, perform upgrade steps described in Upgrading SmartSense Gateway.
