Hi @Tarique,

 

This is a good place to start planning:

That should cover most of what you need.  If you have questions, let us know.

Re: upgrade CM and CDH

Hi,

We are planning for a CDH upgrade now.

Which is the latest stable version in CDH out of 5.13.3 or 5.14.2?

Re: upgrade CM and CDH

Current release is 5.14.2 , best practices is select n-1 (where n is the latest) 

Using Parcels is mostly recommended. Refer the attached Upgrade document. 

 

Thanks

Re: upgrade CM and CDH

Will check if I have new version of the upgrade document.  There won't be much changes other than the target files, the upgrade is preety easy unless if you have very complex cluster. 

 

How big and complex is your cluster ? HA / Non HA  ? And Are you going by packages/Parcels ? 

 

Will be happy to help if you have any more questions. 

 

Thanks

Hey, its approx 40 node cluster. I see Parcels are easy to upgrade. So thought of using them.

Re: upgrade CM and CDH

it's depend from which CDH version you are upgrading ...

 

You need to have a look at the services you cluster includes and if it's version was changed for example: Spark, HDFS, Yarn and So on: for example i upgraded my cluster from 5.5.4 to 5.13.0 i just cared about the spark jobs since spark version was changed and there was a need to change the jobs dependancy, and minor changed we did in hive tables refreshment.

 

I would recommend you to go to Major version -1 so to use 5.13 and use the latest minor version so i recommend 5.13.3
