Kafka version in RHEL/CentOS repo is behind parcels, will it catch up?

Kafka version in RHEL/CentOS repo is behind parcels, will it catch up?

New Contributor

hi, I installed CDH and CM from packages since my cluster doesn't have internet access, I went to replicate the kafka repo locally and found that the latest version for centos 7.2 is kafka 0.8.2, the parcel has 0.9.

 

I tried installing from the parcel using /opt/cloudera/parcel-repo but when installing it says:

 

    This role requires the following additional parcels to be activated before it can start: [cdh].

 

This means I have to install cdh from parcels to make it run?

Will it introduce any problem migrating cdh from packages to parcels at this point?

Is it just that parcel or will it become a chain of dependencies I have to download and replicate locally in parcel-repo?

 

Is there a timeline or intentions to update the repo version of kafka to 0.9?

Kafka 0.9 has been available for RHEL7 based distributions via http://archive.cloudera.com/kafka/redhat/7/x86_64/kafka/2.0.2/RPMS/noarch/ for ex..

What URL are you currently pointing your Yum kafka repository configuration to?

> Will it introduce any problem migrating cdh from packages to parcels at this point?

No, and you can follow http://www.cloudera.com/documentation/enterprise/latest/topics/cm_ig_migrating_packages_to_parcels.h... to do this.

> Is it just that parcel or will it become a chain of dependencies I have to download and replicate locally in parcel-repo?

Usually just a parcel is required.

I was using this repo http://archive.cloudera.com/kafka/redhat/7/x86_64/kafka/cloudera-kafka.repo which contains an outdated path (baseurl=http://archive.cloudera.com/kafka/redhat/7/x86_64/kafka/1/)

 

I changed it to point to 2.0.2 and I got kafka 0.9

 

thanks!
