How to Enable/Disable Oracle Big Data Discovery 1.2.2 on Oracle Big Data Appliance V4.5/CDH5.7.1/OL6 and Higher with bdacli (Doc ID 2150755.1)

Last updated on MARCH 22, 2020

Applies to:

Big Data Appliance Integrated Software - Version 4.5.0 and later
Linux x86-64


NOTE: In the images, examples and document that follow, user details, cluster names, hostnames, directory paths, filenames, etc. represent a fictitious sample (and are used to provide an illustrative example only). Any similarity to actual persons, or entities, living or dead, is purely coincidental and not intended in any manner. 


Note: Currently the only supported Parcel Upgrade on BDA V4.5 is from CDH 5.7.0/5.7.1 to CDH 5.7.4. In this note replace CDH 5.7.1 with 5.7.4. See: Steps to Upgrade an Oracle Big Data Appliance Cluster with Mammoth V4.5 / CDH 5.7.0/5.7.1 to CDH 5.7.4 (Doc ID 2195225.1).


Note: You can follow the same general approach presented here for subsequent BDA versions and BDD releases.


Note: See the "BDA / BDD Supported Release Details" section for details on which BDD releases are supported on which BDA versions.


For a complete BDA/BDD compatibility matrix see: the Big Data Discovery: Installation Guide, Support Platforms.  This compatibility matrix is good through BDD 1.6.0.  You will need to find the compatibility matrix for the BDD version of interest to confirm which versions of BDA/CDH are supported with each however.


This document details how to add/remove Oracle Big Data Discovery (BDD) 1.2.2 on Oracle Big Data Appliance (BDA) V4.5.0/CDH 5.7.1/OL6 using bdacli.  But again the same applies to BDA V4.5/V4.6 for BDD 1.3.2.

For reference see the Big Data Appliance Owner's Guide V4.5 section: 10.8.6 Installing Oracle Big Data Discovery.

 BDA / BDD Supported Release Details
 Is there any downside to installing BDD on a VM and using it as an edge node to the BDA cluster?
 What are the tradeoffs (other than giving up Node 5) to installing BDD on and edge node of the BDA cluster vs on Node 5 of the cluster.
 If BDD 1.2.2  is setup on a edge/client node to access a BDA 4.5 hadoop cluster does the edge/client node also need to use CDH 5.7.1?  In other words will CDH 5.7.0 work on a client/edge node with BDD?
 If BDD 1.2.2  is setup on a client/edge node using CDH 5.7.1 and will access a Hadoop on a BDA V4.5 system, does the BDA system need to be running CDH 5.7.1?
 In a BDCS environment is the BDDCS instance on Node 5 disabled like it is on-premise?
