Non-BDA Nodes which are Part of a BDA Cluster Require Sufficient Space in /opt/cloudera/parcels Before Mammoth Upgrade (Doc ID 2403960.1)

Big Data Appliance Integrated Software - Version 4.8.0 and later
Linux x86-64



Non-BDA nodes which are part of a BDA cluster require approximately 6 GB of free space in /opt/cloudera/parcels in order for Mammoth upgrade to successfully activate the new CDH parcels to these nodes. If sufficient storage does not exist in /opt/cloudera/parcels on the non-BDA nodes, Mammoth upgrade will fail when activating the new CDH parcels.

Follow the steps here to ensure that sufficient space exists in /opt/cloudera/parcels on non-BDA nodes which are part of the cluster. The steps should be followed proactively to avoid Mammoth upgrade errors when activating the parcels on the non-BDA nodes. However if necessary they can be followed reactively during upgrade if Mammoth fails during parcel activation to the non-BDA nodes as described in: Mammoth Upgrade Fails at Step 5 when Distributing Parcels Due to Insufficient Space in /opt/cloudera/parcels on Non-BDA Cluster Nodes (Doc ID 2401493.1).

Note: In the case of multiple clusters sharing the parcels extra steps are required to remove parcels.  But this is not supported on the BDA so should pose no problem on the BDA.



Anyone planning for or doing a Mammoth upgrade.
