Upgrade CDH 5.15.0 to 6.3.x

New Contributor


We are going to upgrade our production cluster.
Our current cdh version is 5.15.0 and we want 6.3.x.

Any best practice or help would be appreciated.

Hi @faizan2017 ,


Thanks for reaching out to Cloudera community.


Do you have Cloudera Manager installed to manage your CDH cluster? If so, you can follow below upgrade guide:


Make sure upgrade Cloudera Manager first to 6.3.x before you start upgrading CDH.


Thanks and hope this helps,


Li Wang, Technical Solution Manager
