Are samba packages necessary on Cloudera platform's Redhat/Centos operating system?

Explorer

Hi All,

 

When I list yum packages on the Redhat/Centos server which is CDH runs, I see some samba packages.

Are they necessary or related to some Cloudera services? I have also checked whether there are dependencies on samba but there are no on Linux level. We need to remove or update this package due to CVE-2021-44142.  
Note: First, We wanted to open a ticket through Cloudera support but it is not possible to open a ticket other than any CDH/CDP component. 

How can we know more detail about that?

 

Thanks.

CM does not have dependency on samba, and does not use any samba packages.

Hi @mehmetersoy ,

 

You can open a ticket with support and associate it with CDP. We can check if there are any Samba dependencies required for CDP and advise if the CVE applies to it or not.

 

Cheers,

André
