Cloudera support will definitely expire. As for the cluster, I think most of the cluster services will keep working, except the licensed pieces and one will be legally non-compliant to the licensing terms.

Can you tell me, which all services will expire? Currently running services are:

Sqoop1,2

Kafka

Flume

Spark

HDFS

HBase

Hue

Impala

Cloudera Management Services

Hue

OOzie

YARN

MR

Zookeeper

Sentry

 

 

Also, if there are 33 nodes in cluster, out of which 24 are data nodes and 9 are master nodes. How many licenses will be required?

Services won't expire, instead license expires. Most of these services are open source, but Cloudera Management Service is not. This stands true if you are using their EDH edition of Hadoop Distro; Cloudera express edition is free, I think.

 

As far as I know, any node that's running services except Gateway roles, Flume roles & CM need to be licensed. But if these services are colocated on a machine along with other services then that machine also needs to be licensed.

 

I would suggest reaching out to your account rep. for further details.

Thankyou...I believe services will keep running as it is, only the additional services that comes with license won't be available.
