How to Move Key Trustee KMS Proxy Roles from non-BDA Nodes to Nodes 1/2 of a BDA Cluster (Doc ID 2252619.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 07, 2023

Applies to:

Big Data Appliance Integrated Software - Version 4.7.0 and later
Linux x86-64


This document provides the steps on how to move Key Management Service KMS proxy roles that are off of the Oracle Big Data Appliance (BDA) cluster to the first two nodes on the BDA Cluster. This would only be used in a case that the HA Key Trustee KMS Proxy Service was initially set up off the BDA and initial setup of Key Trustee Proxy service was not enabled via bdacli utility for HDFS transparent encryption. This might occur in versions that are less than Mammoth 4.4.0, as HDFS transparent encryption became available in that version. This process converts a manually setup HDFS Transparent Encryption Configuration to one that is managed by Mammoth.

If you are going to attempt this please open an SR with Oracle Support and get approval from Support / Development to confirm the environment/process/goals before embarking on the steps in the note.
