Upgrading HDP 3.1.0 to 3.1.4 : remove old version

Upgrading HDP 3.1.0 to 3.1.4 : remove old version

Explorer

I have one question regarding the upgrade of HDP 3.1.0.0-78 to 3.1.4.0-315 on Ubuntu 18, and the remove of the old version once the upgrade is finished.

I can see only the new version In Ambari / Stack and versions / version view, but I would like to know if I have to remove the binaries of the old version on the servers or do something else.

I read the post https://community.cloudera.com/t5/Support-Questions/How-to-remove-an-old-HDP-version/td-p/116161, saying that there is an API call that removes the old HDP version

Thanks in advance

@Stephbat 
Did you follow the Workaround:1 through 3? I see you have a similar error

File "/var/lib/ambari-agent/cache/custom_actions/scripts/remove_previous_stacks.py

1) go to each ambari-agent node and edit the file remove_previous_stacks.py

# vi /var/lib/ambari-agent/cache/custom_actions/scripts/remove_previous_stacks.py

2) go to line: 77

edit the line from :

all_installed_packages = self.pkg_provider.all_installed_packages()

to

all_installed_packages = self.pkg_provider.installed_packages()

3) Retry the operation via curl again, please substitute only the Ambari_host below 

ex:

curl 'http://Ambari_host:8080/api/v1/clusters/<cluster_name>/requests' -u admin:admin -H "X-Requested-By: ambari" -X POST -d'{"RequestInfo":{"context":"remove_previous_stacks", "action" : "remove_previous_stacks", "parameters" : {"version":"3.1.0.0-78"}}, "Requests/resource_filters": [{"hosts":"Ambari_host"}]}'

 And please revert

Yes, I tried this workaround, and I still get this error :

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/var/lib/ambari-agent/cache/custom_actions/scripts/remove_previous_stacks.py", line 118, in <module>
    RemovePreviousStacks().execute()

resource_management.core.exceptions.Fail: /usr/hdp/current/ contains symlink to version for remove! 3.1.0.0-78

It seems that it fails because there are still symink to the old version in the directory /usr/hdp/current (at least on the server where ambari-server is hosted) :

root@server-01:~# ls -l /usr/hdp/current | grep 3.1.0.0-78
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 25 Jul 28 06:27 atlas-server -> /usr/hdp/3.1.0.0-78/atlas
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 31 Jul 28 06:27 hadoop-hdfs-datanode -> /usr/hdp/3.1.0.0-78/hadoop-hdfs

root@server-01:~# ls -l /usr/hdp/current | grep 3.1.4.0-315
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 26 Jul 28 10:44 atlas-client -> /usr/hdp/3.1.4.0-315/atlas
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 27 Jul 28 10:51 hadoop-client -> /usr/hdp/3.1.4.0-315/hadoop

@Stephbat 

Bizarre all the symlinks should point to the newer version 3.1.4.0-315. You should recreate the symlink point to the new version.

The re-run the steps

In order to remove or modify the symlinks that point to the old version, I have executed the command '/usr/bin/hdp-select set all 3.1.4.0-315' on all servers of the cluster. After that, I have relaunch the API request, and I get a new error that I think I can fix with the workaround suggested before in this thread

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/var/lib/ambari-agent/cache/custom_actions/scripts/remove_previous_stacks.py", line 119, in <module>

After the apply of the workaround on the file /var/lib/ambari-agent/cache/custom_actions/scripts/remove_previous_stacks.py, I succeeded to execute the API request but there's no effect : the directory of the old version hasn't been removed on the servers of the cluster, and the results of the API queries GET http://localhost/api/v1/clusters/<cluster_name>/stack_versions,  http://localhost/api/v1/clusters/<cluster_name>/stack_versions/<id_oldversion>,  are the same.
