Upgrades supported from CDSW 1.7.x (and higher) to CDSW 1.9.x

Upgrades supported from CDSW 1.7.x (and higher) to CDSW 1.9.x Cloudera Data Science Workbench only supports upgrades to version 1.9.0 from version 1.7.x and 1.8.x. If you are using an earlier version, you must first upgrade to version 1.7.x or 1.8.x, and then upgrade to version 1.9.0.

Issue with Upgrading CDSW in an airgapped environment

There is an issue with upgrading CDSW in an airgapped environment where docker service has no access to the k8s docker repository or has no proxy set. .


The following steps must be executed after deploying the CDSW parcel and DOCKER role is started but the MASTER, APPLICATION, and WORKER roles are not yet started. In case of an RPM install, this needs to be done after starting the dockerd service but before starting the CDSW master node.

  1. Pull the missing etcd image to local docker repo in a node that has access to the k8s.gcr.io docker repository.
    # docker pull k8s.gcr.io/etcd:3.3.15-0
  2. Save the missing etcd image.
    # docker save k8s.gcr.io/etcd:3.3.15-0 -o etcd.tar
  3. Copy tarball to the CDSW master node.
    # scp etcd.tar <user>@<node>:<location>/etcd.tar
  4. SSH in to the CDSW master node and load the image to the local docker repo.
    # docker load -i <location>/etcd.tar

Now you can start the rest of the roles for parcel installs and bring up cdsw cluster in case of an rpm install.
