Quickstart for CDH 5.7

I have been using 5.5 Quickstart & now have a need to try out 5.7 with Spark 1.6. There is no quickstart for 5.7 available yet & the upgrade process has failed a couple of times, while using the documentation


Is there a plan to release Quickstart for 5.7 soon? Any suggestions on how others are managing their upgrades.


Re: Quickstart for CDH 5.7


The 5.7 VM is now available.


Out of curiosity, what was the problem you experienced while upgrading? Do note that you would need to upgrade to CM 5.7.x before you could upgrade to CDH 5.7.x. The VM also uses Linux packages to install CDH, and that's not taken into account by that specific upgrade documentation. There's a script on the VM's desktop to migrate to parcels first, which is probably the easiest way to get around that...
