In-place upgrade overview
To plan your upgrade from Ambari managed HDP 2.6.5 to CDP Private Cloud Base, you must be aware of the two stages of in-place upgrade along with the pre-upgrade, upgrade, and post-upgrade tasks.
- Upgrade HDP 2.6.5 to Cloudera Runtime 7.1.x using Ambari.
- Transition the management platform from Ambari to Cloudera Manager.
- HDP cluster blueprint is exported from Ambari and converted to a Cloudera Manager deployment template using the AM2CM tool.
- Deploy the template to Cloudera Manager 7.x.x and activate the Cloudera Runtime 7.1.x parcels.
- Start using the CDP Private Cloud Base cluster with Cloudera Manager 7.x.x.
- Uninstall Ambari and the HDP stack
