@Mondi ,

 

If I am mistaken when I assume that as a minor release, CDH 6.3.3 does not change the overall Python version dependencies established by CDH 6.x in general, I'm sure someone more knowledgeable than me will weigh in here.

If I am not mistaken, you can check the dependencies at this page, under the subheading Software Dependencies. Hope this helps.

Re: Python version supported by 6.3.3 Cloudera version

@mon Cloudera Enterprise 6 requires Python 2.6 or higher on RHEL 6 compatible operating systems, but requires Python 2.7 or higher on RHEL 7 compatible operating systems.

Only Hue and Spark2 needed Python 2.7 and rest of all CDH component in C6 train needs Python less than Python3.

You can use Python 3 but not for CDH services until or unless you are trying some custom operations/job which needs some other Python version. 

 


Cheers!

Thanks @ask_bill_brooks for answering and for the help. as per this link, Python 3 is not supported by Cloudera enterprise 6.x so python 2.6 and up is supported.

 

 

I'm still open if there would be other explanations that can be posted here. Thanks in advance!
