Hi All,

 

I want to upgrade my Java version to Java SE 8u171/ 8u172 on Cloudera Enterprise 5.11.1 in the Production environment. Does Cloudera support this.

According to Cloudera "https://www.cloudera.com/documentation/enterprise/release-notes/topics/rn_consolidated_pcm.html#conc..."

JDK 8
All JDK 8 updates, from the minimum required version, are supported in Cloudera 
Manager/CDH 5.3 and higher unless specifically excluded. Updates above the
minimum that are not listed are supported but not tested.

So, as about your question, 8u171 is supported but not tested. Not tested means that you may be the first which will face some issues. In such case, were issue is due to a bug in JDK version, Cloudera will add this version as "excluded".

 

If you want to be safe, then use the latest tested, mentioned by @csguna
