I Prateek,

I have successfully done a downgrade from 2.4 to 2,3, but to be able to do this I had to had a complete backup of the ambari database from before the upgrade. I suspect the process would be similar.

the process was:

  • stop all ambari daemons
  • remove all ambari packages
  • install the old version ambari packages
  • delete the old ambari database and load from the backup
  • start ambari server, check if its working
  • start ambari agents

If you dont have a backup of the 2.1 database then I doubt you can safely do the downgrade, there are a number of upgrade sql scripts that run when you upgrade but there are no equivalent scripts to go backwards.
