BDA Upgrade to V4.2 Fails at Step5-Cluster Can Not be Upgraded because the Version is Already CDH 5.4.0 when Using non-English Messages (Doc ID 2052487.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 04, 2015

Applies to:

Big Data Appliance Integrated Software - Version 4.2.0 and later
Linux x86-64


A BDA upgrade to Version 4.2 fails one or more times at Step 5 with an error stating that the cluster can not be upgraded because the version is already CDH 5.4.0.  This may happen when using non-English messages. Note when encountering this specific problem the cluster has been upgraded to CDH 5.4.0.

1. In this case non-English messaging is used.

2. Mammoth fails at step 5 with something like:

Error [11062]: (//[main]/Hadoop::Installcdhparcel/Exec[deployparcel]/returns) change from notrun to 0 failed: /opt/oracle/BDAMammoth/bdaconfig/tmp/ &> /opt/oracle/BDAMammoth/bdaconfig/tmp/deployparcel_1441279387.out returned 1 instead of one of [0]

3. deployparcel_1441279387.out shows that the Parcel has been activated:

Error : Cannot upgrade because the version already is CDH 5.4.0.
Failed. Full error output in : /opt/oracle/BDAMammoth/bdaconfig/tmp/clusters_<cluster_name>_commands_upgradeCdh.out

4. clusters_<cluster_name>_commands_upgradeCdh.out has the same output as above.

5. Further checking, confirms the cluster is upgraded to CDH 5.4.0.  

a) Running 'dcli -C hadoop version' returns "Hadoop 2.6.0-cdh5.4.0" on each node.

b) From Cloudera Manager (CM), navigating to Home > <cluster_name> > shows (CDH 5.4.0 Parcels).

c) From Cloudera Manager, navigating to Hosts > Parcels > Parcel Usage shows CDH 5.4.0 on all nodes.

d) Running the Host Inspector shows CDH 5.4.0 versions for all CDH components.

e) Navigating CM to All Recent Commands shows the 'Upgrade Cluster' command stating that Activating the parcel succeeded.

f) On Node  ls -l /opt/oracle/BDAMammoth/bdarepo/PARCELS/CDH, shows the CDH 5.4.0 parcel:
