Based on your output (auto mode in alternatives) you can try to add it with a higher priority (the 2.4 spark-submit has priority 10):

/usr/sbin/alternatives --install /usr/bin/spark-submit spark-submit /opt/cloudera/parcels/SPARK2/bin/spark2-submit 100

 

Be aware that Cloudera Manager might (try to) overwrite this on CDH updates.

 

Again, I would recommend using the packaged Spark that comes with CDH and have doubts that using CDS in CDH 6.x is supported (also see [CDS Requirements - CDH Versions] [Migrating Apache Spark Before Upgrading to CDH 6])

You can override the "spark-submit" association with alternatives, e.g.:

/usr/sbin/alternatives --set spark-submit <path-to-spark2-submit>

# <path-to-spark2-submit> could be like "/opt/cloudera/parcels/SPARK2-2.2.0-cloudera1-cdh5.13.3.p0.611179/bin/spark2-submit"
# This is a path of CDH 5 to the Spark parcel directory. You need to adjust it to your path (the one that spark2-shell is pointing to)
# You can find this path with:
/usr/sbin/alternatives --display spark2-submit

 

However, from CDH 6.x, it is normal to use spark-submit instead of spark2-submit because there is only Spark2 included in CDH. Also, it is normal to use the packaged version inside of the CDH distribution, which seems to be 2.4.0 for your CDH 6.1.1. I am not sure, if using a different version is supported or recommended by Cloudera.

 

How did you install that Spark 2.2 version in your CDH 6 cluster?

Thank you ....

 

this has not been setup by that command. 

 

[root@sxd-cdh-nn sbin]# /usr/sbin/alternatives --set spark-submit "/opt/cloudera/parcels/SPARK2-2.2.0.cloudera1-1.cdh5.12.0.p0.142354/bin/spark2-submit"
/opt/cloudera/parcels/SPARK2-2.2.0.cloudera1-1.cdh5.12.0.p0.142354/bin/spark2-submit has not been configured as an alternative for spark-submit
[root@sxd-cdh-nn sbin]# /usr/sbin/alternatives --display spark-submit
spark-submit - status is auto.
link currently points to /opt/cloudera/parcels/CDH-6.1.1-1.cdh6.1.1.p0.875250/bin/spark-submit

Current `best' version is /opt/cloudera/parcels/CDH-6.1.1-1.cdh6.1.1.p0.875250/bin/spark-submit.
[root@sxd-cdh-nn sbin]# /usr/sbin/alternatives --display spark2-submit

we did not pre-configured Spark2 while installing CDH and now we have installed spark 2.2 via parcels method.
