Upgraded our test cluster from CDH 5.1.3 to CDH 126.96.36.199. No issues during upgrade and cluster starts fine except for Impala. No impala instances will start (statestore, catalog server, daemons). No role logs seem to be created, stderr log reports below. Impala was working fine for us on CDH 4, CDH 5, CDH 5.1.3. Re-install of impala service results in same error.
The test cluster is based on 'older' SUN X4110 h/w with AMD Operton processors running RHEL 6.4. Do not think these processsors support SSE3. Does Impala no longer work in CDH 5.2 without SSE3 where it was working under 5.1.3 using the same configuration ?
