Step 10: Run the Upgrade Cluster Wizard

The Upgrade Wizard manages the upgrade of your Cloudera Runtime software.

Minimum Required Role: Cluster Administrator (also provided by Full Administrator) This feature is not available when using Cloudera Manager to manage Data Hub clusters.

  1. Log in to the Cloudera Manager Admin Console.
  2. Click the Actions menu and select Upgrade Cluster.

    The Getting Started screen of the Upgrade Wizard displays.

  3. Click the Upgrade to Version: drop-down and select the version of Cloudera Runtime for your upgrade.

    The wizard now runs several checks to make sure that your cluster is ready for upgrade. You must resolve any reported issues before continuing.

  4. Click the Download and Distribute Parcel button.
    The parcel downloads from the Remote Repository URL you specified. After it is downloaded, Cloudera Manager distributes the parcel to all of the cluster hosts and unpacks it. Depending on network bandwidth, this process may take some time.

    The Install Services section displays any additional services that you need to install to upgrade your cluster.

    If you are upgrading a cluster that has the Hive service, you will be prompted to add the Tez, Zookeeper, Hive on Tez, and YARN QueueManager services.
  5. The Sentry service is replaced by Apache Ranger in CDP Private Cloud Base. If the cluster has the Sentry service installed, you can migrate to Apache Ranger.

    The Apache Ranger service depends on the ZooKeeper and Solr services. The upgrade wizard display buttons for installing several dependent services that are required for Apache Ranger. If your cluster does not include these services, buttons will appear to install them.

    1. Follow the steps for Transitioning the Sentry service to Apache Ranger before continuing.
    2. If the cluster does not already have the ZooKeeper service, click the Add ZooKeeper Service button.

      The Assign Roles page displays with the role assignment for the ZooKeeper service. You can keep the assigned host or assign the role to a different host.

    3. Click Continue.

      The Review Changes screen displays where you can change the default configurations.

    4. Click Continue.

      The upgrade wizard resumes.

    5. If the cluster does not already have the Solr service, click the Add Solr Service button.

      The Assign Roles page displays with the role assignment for the Solr service. You can keep the assigned host or assign the role to a different host.

    6. Click Continue.

      The Review Changes screen displays where you can change the default configurations.

    7. Click Continue.

      The upgrade wizard resumes.

    8. Click the Add Ranger Service button

      The Assign Roles page displays with the role assignment for the Ranger service.

    9. Assign the following Ranger roles to cluster hosts:
      • Ranger Admin -- you must assign this role to the host you specified when you set up the Ranger database.
      • Ranger Usersync
      • Ranger Tagsync
    10. The Ranger Review Changes screen displays. Review the configurations and make any necessary changes. You must provide values for the following:
      • Ranger Admin User Initial Password – choose a password.
      • Ranger Usersync User Initial Password – choose a password.
      • Ranger Tagsync User Initial Password – choose a password.
      • Ranger KMS Keyadmin user initial Password – choose a password.
      • Ranger Database Type Chose either MySQL, PostgreSQL, or Oracle.
      • Ranger Database Host – enter the hostname where the Ranger database is running.
      • Ranger Database User Password – enter the password you created when you created the Ranger database and user. rangeradmin.
      • Ranger Admin Max Heapsize – set the default value instead of minimum value by clicking the curved blue arrow.
      • Ranger Tagsync Max Heapsize – set the default value instead of minimum value by clicking the curved blue arrow.
      • Ranger Usersync Max Heapsize – set the default value instead of minimum value by clicking the curved blue arrow.
    11. Click Continue.
  6. If your cluster does not have the YARN Queue Manager, installed, a button will appear to add the YARN Queue Manager service because it is required for the Capacity Scheduler, which is the supported scheduler.

    The first step of Adding YARN Queue Manager Service is to copy scheduler settings. For more information about how to transition from Fair Scheduler to Capacity Scheduler, see Fair Scheduler to Capacity Scheduler transition.

  7. Enable Atlas install.

    If the cluster being upgraded was running Navigator, the upgrade wizard shows a note recommending that you enable Atlas in the new cluster. Check the Install Atlas option.



  8. Install Atlas dependencies.

    The wizard steps through the installation for Atlas' dependencies, assuming these services haven't already been included in the installation:

    • ZooKeeper. Assign one or more hosts for the ZooKeeper role.
    • HDFS. Already included in the installation.
    • Kafka. Select the optional dependency of HDFS. Atlas requires configuring the Broker service only, not MirrorMaker, Connect, or Gateway.
    • HBase. Atlas requires configuring HBase Master and RegionServers only, not REST or Thrift Server. Assign a Master role on at least one host. Assign RegionServers to all hosts.
    • Solr. Assign a host for the Solr Server role. Set the Java Heap Size of Solr Server in Bytes property to 12 GB (to support the migration operation).

    For recommendations on where in the cluster to install the service roles, see Runtime Cluster Hosts and Role Assignments.

  9. Click Add Atlas Service. The wizard steps through choosing a host and setting migration details.
    • Set the host for the Atlas server roles and click Continue.
    • The Atlas Migrate Navigator Data screen displays.
      This screen contains migration commands that are customized to your environment. When you fill in the output file paths, the command text changes to incorporate your settings.
      1. Set migration data-staging locations.

        The migration process creates two data files on the local file system on the host where Atlas is installed. Make sure there is enough disk space to hold these files; see Estimating the time and resources needed for transition.

      2. Copy the extraction command text to an editor.


      3. Copy the transformation command text to an editor.


      4. Confirm the output file location. This is the location where Atlas will look for the content to import. Make sure it matches the location you plan to use for the output of the transformation command.
      5. Click Continue.
    • The Atlas Enable Migration Mode screen displays. Review the Atlas Safety Valve content and click Continue.

      After the migration is complete, you will manually remove these settings to start Atlas in normal operation.

    • The Atlas Review Changes screen displays. Review the configurations and make any necessary changes.You must provide a value for the following:
      • Admin Password – choose a password for the preconfigured admin user.
      • Atlas Max Heapsize – set the max heapsize to the default value by clicking the curved blue arrow. If you plan to migrate content from Cloudera Navigator to Atlas, consider setting the heapsize to 16 GB.


    • Click Continue.

    To complete the Navigator-to-Atlas migration outside of the CDP Runtime upgrade, see Transitioning Navigator data using customized scripts.

  10. The Other Tasks section lists other tasks or reminders to note before continuing. Select the option to confirm that you understand before continuing.
  11. The Inspector Checks section displays sever inspectors you must run before continuing. If these inspectors report errors, you must resolve those before continuing.
    • Click the Show Inspector Results button to see details of the inspection.
    • Click the Run Again button to verify that you have resolved the issue.
    • If you are confident that the errors are not critical, select Skip this step. I understand the risks..
    The Inspector Checks section includes the following inspectors:
    • Host Inspector
    • Service Inspector

    Run these inspectors and correct any reported errors before continuing.

  12. The Database Backup section asks you to verify that you have completed the necessary backups. Select Yes, I have performed these steps.
  13. Click Continue. (The Continue button remains greyed out until all upgrades steps are complete and all warnings have been acknowledged.)
  14. Click Continue again to shut down the cluster and begin the upgrade.

    The Upgrade Cluster Command screen opens and displays the progress of the upgrade.

  15. When the Upgrade steps are complete, click Continue.

    The Summary page opens and displays any additional steps you need to complete the upgrade.

  16. Click Continue.
