This document provides details on how to install Spark 2 on the Oracle Big Data Appliance (BDA)  4.7 and higher releases.

This note uses an example of installing Spark 2.0.2.

Note: As per the Cloudera Spark 2 Requirements documentation although CDH 5.7, CDH 5.8, CDH 5.9, CDH 5.10 are supported only Cloudera Manager 5.8.3, 5.9 and higher are.  Cloudera Manager 5.8.3 is not currently supported on the BDA.  What this means is:
