If your cluster uses Schema Registry, you need to update database related configuration properties. In addition, if you are using MySQL to store Schema Registry metadata, you also need to download the JDBC Driver for MySQL (Connector/J) to Schema Registry hosts.

  1. Configure database related properties:
    1. In Cloudera Manager, select the Schema Registry service.
    2. Go to Configuration.
    3. Find and configure the following properties:
      • Schema Registry Database User Password
      • Schema Registry Database Type
      • Schema Registry Database Name
      • Schema Registry Database User
      • Schema Registry Database Host
      • Schema Registry Database Port
    4. Click Save Changes.
  2. Download the JDBC Driver for MySQL (Connector/J) to the Schema Registry host and make it available in the required locations:
    1. Log in to the Schema Registry host.
      ssh [MY_SCHEMA_REGISTRY_HOST]
    2. Download the JDBC Driver for MySQL (Connector/J) from the MySQL Product Archives.
      Cloudera recommends that you use version 5.1.46. Examples in the following steps assume that you downloaded version 5.1.46. Make sure that you download or copy the JDBC Driver for MySQL (Connector/J) archive to the host that Schema Registry is deployed on.
      • If your cluster has internet access, download the archive directly to the host.
        wget https://downloads.mysql.com/archives/get/p/3/file/mysql-connector-java-5.1.46.tar.gz
      • If internet access is not available, download it on a machine that has access and then copy it over to your host.
    3. Extract the archive.
      Use the tar command or any other archive manager to extract the archive.
      tar -xzvf [ARCHIVE_PATH]
      Replace [ARCHIVE_PATH] with the path to the archive you have downloaded. For example, /root/mysql-connector-java-5.1.46.tar.gz.
    4. Copy the mysql-connector-java-5.1.46-bin.jar JAR file from the extracted archive to the parcel directory.
      cp [MYSQL_CONNECTOR_JAR] /opt/cloudera/parcels/CDH-[VERSION_NUMBER]/jars

      Replace [MYSQL_CONNECTOR_JAR] with the path to the connector JAR file. You can find the JAR file within the directory you extracted in the previous step. For example /root/mysql-connector-java-5.1.46/mysql-connector-java-5.1.46-bin.jar. Replace [VERSION_NUMBER] with the version number of the parcel you are upgrading to.

    5. Create symlinks to make the connector available in the required locations by running the following commands.
      cd /opt/cloudera/parcels/CDH-[VERSION_NUMBER]/lib/schemaregistry/bootstrap/lib
      ln -s ../../../../jars/mysql-connector-java-5.1.46-bin.jar 
      cd /opt/cloudera/parcels/CDH-[VERSION_NUMBER]/lib/schemaregistry/libs
      ln -s ../../../jars/mysql-connector-java-5.1.46-bin.jar
