We currently have a HDP 188.8.131.52 cluster and we wanted to go to HDP 3.1.X in a new, from scratch install, with data migration in the end.
Last HDP release is the 3.1.5, so we decided to start the installation following official guide book this morning.
Then, we came to this part : https://docs.cloudera.com/HDPDocuments/Ambari-184.108.40.206/bk_ambari-installation/content/ch03s02s01.html
It says :
"Authentication credentials for new customers and partners are provided in an email sent from Cloudera to registered support contacts.
Existing users can file a non-technical case within the support portal (https://my.cloudera.com) to obtain credentials."
When we tried to create a case, we had a "Permission denied" message. We do not have a Cloudera Support contract.
When we compare 3.1.4 and 3.1.5 repos, there is a visible difference :
|HDP - 220.127.116.11||https://archive.cloudera.com/p/HDP/centos7/3.x/updates/18.104.22.168|
|HDP - 22.214.171.124||http://public-repo-1.hortonworks.com/HDP/centos7/3.x/updates/126.96.36.199/HDP-188.8.131.52-315.xml|
We know the "old" repo from the ancient install, but not the https://archive.cloudera.com, which seems newer.
Our question is : Do we have to suscribe to Cloudera Support to get HDP updates following the 3.1.4 ?
We did not find the clear answer yet, thank you for your help.
The answer to your question is 'yes'. You do need a subscription with Cloudera to download the binaries for HDP 3.1.5.
Cloudera has recently changed its licensing model. Moving forward you will a subscription with Cloudera to deploy and use our binaries. You can read more details here:
