Upgrade Cloudera Manager Software using Packages vs Tarballs



we have installed Cloudera Manager 5.7.1 using Tarballs. Now we'd like to do upgrade to 5.8.3. During "Clouder Manager Upgrade Software" we should choose how to upgade:


  • Choose a procedure based on how you installed Cloudera Manager:
    • Upgrade Cloudera Manager Server (Packages)
    • Install Cloudera Manager Server and Agent Software (Tarballs)


Please is it ok to choose Upgrade form Packages if we install CM using Tarballs? I know that we should use Tarballs during upgrade but we'd like to switch to Packages. During Tarball instalation we choose default target path /opt/cloudera/cloudera-manager/
