I have some questions regarding the license setup process described in Upgrading from Cloudera Express to Cloudera Enterprise , knowing that our CDH 5.11 cluster is alread running and fully configured(kerberos, services, etc...):
1 - Is it possible to install the enterprise license without access to the internet or should we enable it?
2 - We have already installed an external database (MariaDB) for services datastores, configured user/passwords etc... So why are the credentials required during license setup? It sounds strange to have this asked at such a time.
3 - Is it a non-destructive process regarding current cluster configuration (this is somehow a consequence of point 2)?
Thanks for the help

Thank you for your answers. I will install the license and report here how it went.
As everything was already configured, the only point was about the ReportManager role brought by the Enterprise version: I was asked for the DB credentials for this particular role and where to install it.
Then a few restarts and the Enterprise version was up-and-running.
