Upgrading CDH to CDP Private Cloud Base

High-level upgrade procedures for upgrades from CDH to CDP Private Cloud Base.

Upgrading CDP Private Cloud Base consists of two major steps, upgrading Cloudera Manager and upgrading the cluster. You are not required to upgrade Cloudera Manager and the cluster at the same time, but the versions of Cloudera Manager and the cluster must be compatible. The major+minor version of Cloudera Manager must be equal to or higher than the major+minor version of CDH or Cloudera Runtime.

An upgrade from CDH to CDP Private Cloud Base has the following high-level workflow:
  1. Prepare to upgrade:
    1. Review the Supported Upgrade Paths for your upgrade.
    2. Review the Requirements and Supported Versions for your upgrade
    3. Review the Release Notes for the version of CDP Private Cloud Base you are upgrading to.
    4. Gather information on your deployment. See Getting Started Upgrading Cloudera Manager and Getting Started Upgrading a Cluster.
    5. Plan how and when to begin your upgrade.
  2. If necessary, Upgrade the JDK.
  3. If necessary, Upgrade the Operating System.
  4. Perform any needed pre-upgrade transition steps for the components deployed in your clusters. See CDP Private Cloud Base Pre-upgrade transition steps
  5. Upgrade Cloudera Manager to version 7.1.1 or higher. After upgrading to Cloudera Manager 7.1.1 or higher, Cloudera Manager can manage upgrading your cluster to a higher version. See Upgrading Cloudera Manager.
  6. Use Cloudera Manager to Upgrade CDH to Cloudera Runtime 7, or from Cloudera Runtime to a higher version of Cloudera Runtime. See Upgrading a Cluster.
  7. Perform any needed post-upgrade transition steps for the components deployed in your clusters. See CDH to CDP Private Cloud Base post-upgrade transition steps.

Component Changes in CDP Private Cloud Base 7.1

YARN Fair Scheduler is being removed.

The YARN Fair Scheduler is being replaced with the YARN Capacity Scheduler. A transition tool will be provided to convert the Fair Scheduler configurations to Capacity Scheduler.

Component Changes in CDP Private Cloud Base 7.0

Pig, Flume, Sentry, and Navigator have been removed.

  • Pig can be replaced with Hive or Spark.
