Issues Fixed in Cloudera Data Science Workbench 1.6.1

The current release of Cloudera Data Science Workbench includes fixes for bugs.

  • Fixed an issue where deployments using a custom Certificate Authority (signed by either their organisation's internal CA or a non-default CA) would see HTTP Error 500 when attempting to launch the Terminal or Jupyter Notebook sessions from the Workbench

    With version 1.6.1, if you are using a custom CA, site administrators can go to the Admin > Security page and paste your internal CA's root certificate file contents into the Root CA configuration field.

    The contents of this field are then inserted into the engine's root certificate store every time a session (or any workload) is launched. This allows processes inside the engine to communicate with the ingress controller.

    Cloudera Bug: DSE-7237, DSE-7173

  • Fixed an issue where the Admin > License page was displaying an incorrect number of CDSW users on a deployment. This count has now been updated to reflect only the total number of active users.

    Cloudera Bug: DSE-6350

  • Fixed an issue where setting HADOOP_USER_NAME to the CDSW username had certain unintended consequences. This fix now sets HADOOP_USER_NAME to the first part of the Kerberos principal in kerberized environments. In non-kerberized environments, it is still set to the CDSW username.

    Cloudera Bug: DSE-6928

  • Fixed an issue where sessions on non-kerberized environments would throw the following error even though no principal was provided: Kerberos principal provided, but no krb5.conf and cluster is not Kerberized.

    Cloudera Bug: DSE-7236

  • Fixed an issue in version 1.6.0 where GPUs were not being recognized on air-gapped environments.

    Cloudera Bug: DSE-7138

  • Fixed an issue where the transition to/from Daylight Savings Time would cause scheduled CDSW jobs to fail.

    Cloudera Bug: DSE-3399

  • Fixed an issue in CDSW 1.6.0 where CDSW sessions would fail to launch or the web application crashes due to a Node.js issue.
