I'm planning to upgrade ambari version from 2.2.2 to 2.5.1 and for HDP from 2.4.3 to 2.6.1 is it recommended to upgrade in this same manner, or better to go with lower version upgrade example, ambari 2.2.2 to 2.3.x & to 2.4.x and for HDP 2.4.x to 2.5.x & to 2.6.x. Since im planning to upgrade in production environment i need this clarification.kindly suggest.
Ambari 2.5 does not support managing an HDP 2.2, 2.1 or 2.0
cluster. If you are running HDP 2.2, 2.1 or 2.0, in order to use Ambari 2.5 you must first upgrade to HDP 2.3 or higher using either Ambari
2.4.2, 2.2.2, 2.2.1, 2.2, 2.1, or 2.0 before upgrading to Ambari
2.5. Once completed, upgrade your current Ambari to Ambari 2.5.
