Fixed Issues in CDH 6.2.1

Kafka Broker Java configuration options in Cloudera Manager 6.2.0 are not applied to the broker JVM process

Cloudera Manager allows the configuration of JVM option for Kafka brokers via the Additional Broker Java Options (broker_java_opts) service parameter. In Cloudera Manager 6.2.0, when managing CDH 6.2.0 clusters, ‘broker_java_opts’ are ignored when starting the Kafka broker process, resulting in using default JVM configuration options. This can lead to the following problems (depending on other environment variables):

  • Kafka broker process does not use the recommended garbage collector settings leading to poor performance and increased resource (heap memory) utilization.
  • Kafka broker process allows remote connection to JMX interface making the process vulnerable to remote code execution on the broker nodes.

Products affected: Apache Kafka

Affected version:
  • CDH 6.2.0
  • Cloudera Manager 6.2.0
Fixed version:
  • CDH 6.2.1, 6.3.0

Oozie database upgrade fails when PostgreSQL version 9.6 or higher is used

Oozie database upgrade fails when PostgreSQL version 9.6 or higher is used due to a sys table change in PostgreSQL from version 9.5 to 9.6. The failure only happens if Oozie uses a JDBC driver earlier than 9.4.1209.

  1. After the parcels of the new version are distributed, replace the PostgreSQL JDBC driver with a newer one (version 9.4.1209 or higher) in the new parcel, at the following locations:
    • /opt/cloudera/parcels/${newparcel.version}/lib/oozie/lib/
    • /opt/cloudera/parcels/${newparcel.version}/lib/oozie/libtools/
  2. Perform the upgrade.
If your cluster is installed from packages, you must change the drivers at the following locations:
  • /usr/lib/oozie/libtools/
  • /usr/lib/oozie/lib/

You can download the driver from the PostgreSQL JDBC driver homepage.

Affected Versions: CDH 6.0.0 and higher

Fixed Version: CDH 6.2.1 and higher

Cloudera Issue: CDH-75951

GPU and Custom Resource Types Are Not Added to the YARN Client's Configuration File When Enabled

When GPU or other custom resource type is configured in Cloudera Manager, the appropiate resource (for example is not added to the YARN client's configuration (yarn-site.xml) file. As a result, jobs that use GPU or the configured custom resource type will fail.

Workaround: Add the appropriate resource manually to the YARN Client Advanced Configuration Snippet (Safety Valve) for yarn-site.xml:
  1. In Cloudera Manager select YARN service and go to Configuration.
  2. Search for YARN Client Advanced Configuration Snippet (Safety Valve) for yarn-site.xml
  3. Add the following snippet:

Cloudera Issue: OPSAPS-49507

Error when executing Java classes from a CDH cluster running on Ubuntu 18

Using the hadoop command-line interface for executing Java classes that are not in the default package results in error messages similar to the following:
#hadoop org.apache.hadoop.conf.Configuration
/opt/cloudera/parcels/CDH-6.2.0-1.cdh6.2.0.p0.914039/bin/../lib/hadoop/libexec// line 2366: HADOOP_ORG.APACHE.HADOOP.CONF.CONFIGURATION_USER: bad substitution
/opt/cloudera/parcels/CDH-6.2.0-1.cdh6.2.x.p0.914039/bin/../lib/hadoop/libexec// line 2331: HADOOP_ORG.APACHE.HADOOP.CONF.CONFIGURATION_USER: bad substitution
/opt/cloudera/parcels/CDH-6.2.0-1.cdh6.2.x.p0.914039/bin/../lib/hadoop/libexec// line 2426: HADOOP_ORG.APACHE.HADOOP.CONF.CONFIGURATION_OPTS: bad substitution

This issue occurs only in CDH 6.2 clusters running on Ubuntu 18 and the error messages can be safely ignored.

Workaround: Run the java command directly using hadoop classpath to get the classpath. For example, instead of hadoop org.apache.hadoop.conf.Configuration, you can run java -cp `hadoop classpath` org.apache.hadoop.conf.Configuration.

Hadoop LdapGroupsMapping does not support LDAPS for self-signed LDAP server

Hadoop LdapGroupsMapping does not work with LDAP over SSL (LDAPS) if the LDAP server certificate is self-signed. This use case is currently not supported even if Hadoop User Group Mapping LDAP TLS/SSL Enabled, Hadoop User Group Mapping LDAP TLS/SSL Truststore, and Hadoop User Group Mapping LDAP TLS/SSL Truststore Password are filled properly.

Affected Versions: CDH 5.x and 6.0.x versions

Fixed Versions: CDH 6.1.0

Apache Issue: HADOOP-12862

Cloudera Issue: CDH-37926

The Idempotent and Transactional Capabilities of Kafka are Incompatible with Sentry

The idempotent and transactional capabilities of Kafka are not compatible with Sentry. The issue is due to Sentry being unable to handle authorization policies for Kafka transactions. As a result, users cannot use Kafka transaction in combination with Sentry.

Workaround: Use the Sentry super user in applications where idempotent producing is a requirement or disable Sentry.
