Migrating OS distribution

Migrating OS distribution

New Contributor

Hi,

 

Since Debian is not supported in CDH 6.x, I want to migrate my CDH deployment to another Linux distribution, e.g. CentOS. What are the steps for this migration? Is it possible to migrate nodes one by one? Or do I need to build a new cluster and then (somehow) move the data?

 

Thanks

hi @MartinP ,

one way to do it is to build a new cluster in your CentOS platforme ,
then copy all your data to the new cluster as mentionned here

just pay attention to the CDH distribution source and destination ,if they are supported for the migration or not .

cheers,
