Upgrading OS RHEL 6.5 to 6.7 needed?

Upgrading OS RHEL 6.5 to 6.7 needed?

Expert Contributor

Hi,

One of the clusters(HDP 2.1) we have is RHEL 6.5 and the other cluster(HDP2.4.2) is using RHEL 6.7... I was wondering if I needed to upgrade OS for the old cluster from 6.5 to 6.7 because we have to merge both the clusters into one eventually..? Is HDP 2.1 compatible with 6.7 when I upgrade OS first...?

No, the code used in HDP is the same accross 6.x release. There will be no difference in how Hadoop works on these systems. Also, 2.1.x is compatible with RHEL 6.x per:
