In-place upgrade overview

This document provides instructions on upgrading from Ambari managed HDP 3.1.5 to CDP Private Cloud Base.

This upgrade path consists of two stages:
  1. Upgrade HDP 3.1.5 to Cloudera Runtime 7.1.x using Ambari.
  2. Transition the management platform from Ambari to Cloudera Manager.
To upgrade to Cloudera Runtime 7.1.x, you must first upgrade from Ambari 2.7.5.x (source) to Ambari 7.1.x.x (target) and then upgrade from HDP 3.1.5 to Cloudera Runtime 7.1.x.
The final step of the upgrade process is to transition from the Ambari to Cloudera Manager 7.3.1 using the AM2CM tool. It includes the following steps:
  • 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 7.3.1 and activate the Cloudera Runtime 7.1.x parcels.
  • Start using the CDP Private Cloud Base cluster with Cloudera Manager 7.3.1.
  • Uninstall Ambari and the HDP stack

Upgrading and transitioning to CDP Private Cloud Base

  8. Transition from HDP to Cloudera Manager.
    1. Perform the pre-transition steps for the components deployed in your clusters including exporting blueprint with hosts from Ambari.
    2. Install Cloudera Manager 7.3.1 - the Cloudera Manager server, daemons, and agents.
    3. Generate Cloudera Manager Deployment template using the AM2CM tool and the exported blueprint with hosts.
    4. Shutdown Ambari and HDP and import the deployment template into Cloudera Manager.
    5. Download, distribute, and activate Cloudera Runtime 7.1.x parcels using Cloudera Manager.
    6. Start CDP Private Cloud Base using Cloudera Manager.
    7. Perform the post transition steps in Cloudera Manager.
  9. Configure external authentication with Cloudera Manager if you have LDAP configured on your cluster.
  10. Install additional services like Hue on your cluster using Cloudera Manager.
  11. Test and update applications and services on your CDP cluster.
