How to Migrate Sentry with a File-Based Provider to Sentry as a Service in BDA V4.2. (Doc ID 2058078.1)

Last updated on JUNE 15, 2017

Applies to:

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

Goal


This note provides step by step detail to migrate Sentry with a file-based provider to Sentry as a Service in BDA V4.2.

One example of this use case is in the following scenario:

1. Sentry with a policy file was installed pre BDA V4.2.
2. The BDA is then upgraded to BDA 4.2 and because a BDA upgrade does not affect Sentry, Sentry with a policy file persists in BDA V4.2.
3. In BDA V4.2  a request is made at the site to use Sentry as a Service and remove Sentry with policy file.
