On February 9th, 2016, we announced the release of Cloudera Enterprise 5.5.2. Shortly after that, we discovered a severe bug in Cloudera Manager 5.5.2, so we decided to remove the release. CDH 5.5.2 was not affected by this bug.
Today we are releasing CDH 5.5.2, Cloudera Manager 5.5.2 and Cloudera Manager 5.5.3. All improvements, fixes, and changes in Cloudera Manager 5.5.2, as well as a change related to LDAP authentication, are included in Cloudera Manager 5.5.3. If you are upgrading from a previous version of Cloudera Manager, Cloudera recommends that you upgrade to version 5.5.3 or higher.
This release fixes key bugs and includes the following:
Cloudera Manager 5.5.3 fixes for the following issue:
When upgrading to Cloudera Manager 5.5.2 from versions 5.4.8 or earlier,customers who have non-read-only roles configured through LDAP, and who have not explicitly set Cloudera Manager local roles, may lose their Cloudera Manager administration privileges.
All improvements, fixes, and changes in Cloudera Manager 5.5.2, as well as a change related to LDAP authentication, are included in Cloudera Manager 5.5.3. For more details, see the issues fixed section of the Release Notes.
Cloudera Navigator 2.4.2 fixes for the following issues:
After upgrade, entities are incorrectly marked as deleted.
When Navigator uses the Cloudera Manager authenticator and Cloudera Manager is TLS enabled, authentication fails.
Policies created from the Analytics UI were not working.
