Quick start: Upgrading CDH to a higher version of CDH

High-level upgrade procedures for upgrades from CDH to higher versions of CDH.

Supported upgrades:

An upgrade from CDH to CDP Private Cloud Base has the following high-level workflow:

  1. Review the Upgrade Guide topic on supported upgrade paths.
  2. Gather information on your deployment. See Getting Started Upgrading Cloudera Manager and Getting Started Upgrading a Cluster.
  3. Plan how and when to begin your upgrade.
  4. Upgrade Cloudera Manager to a major/minor version that is higher than the version of CDH you are upgrading to. After upgrading to Cloudera Manager, Cloudera Manager will manage upgrading your cluster to a higher version. See Upgrading Cloudera Manager.
  5. If you are upgrading to CDH 6 from CDH 5, perform any needed pre-upgrade transition steps for the components deployed in your clusters. See Pre-Upgrade Transition Steps for Upgrades to CDH 6.
  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. If you are upgrading to CDH 6 from CDH 5, perform any needed post-upgrade steps for the components deployed in your clusters. See Post-Upgrade Transition Steps for Upgrades to CDH 6 .
