Incompatible Changes in Cloudera Manager 4

The following sections describe incompatible changes between Cloudera Manager releases.

Incompatible changes introduced in Cloudera Manager 4.5.0

Alert Publisher by default sends alert email to "root@localhost", via port 25 (SMTP) on localhost. This can be configured during the wizard setup, or in the configuration of Management Server/Alert Publisher.

By default, Hive will set hive.warehouse.subdir.inherit.perms to true. This is a minor change of behavior. If this change is undesired, change the configuration in the Hive service. This impacts upgrade in the following scenarios:

CDH3 cluster to CDH4 cluster using Cloudera Manager 4.5

Cloudera Manager upgrade to Cloudera Manager 4.5, where Cloudera Manager is managing a CDH4 cluster

Cloudera Manager 4.5 does not support Internet Explorer 8. Users who cannot or do not wish to upgrade to Internet Explorer 9 should not upgrade to Cloudera Manager 4.5.

The default Java GC options of NameNode, Secondary NameNode, DataNode, JobTracker, and TaskTracker are now set to:

-XX:+UseParNewGC -XX:+UseConcMarkSweepGC -XX:CMSInitiatingOccupancyFraction=70 -XX:+CMSParallelRemarkEnabled

Cloudera Manager API v3 (new in 4.5) does not support setting a service's roletype configuration, since that has been replaced by role group. Callers should set the configuration on the appropriate role group instead. Cloudera Manager 4.5 continues to support API v1 and v2. But users who want to upgrade their existing clients to v3 would need to rewrite any roletype configuration calls.

Incompatible changes introduced in Cloudera Manager 4.1.3

Cloudera Manager 4.1.3 supports only version 0.4 of the Cloudera Impala Beta Release. It does not support the earlier beta versions. If you upgrade your Cloudera Manager installation, you must also upgrade Impala to beta version 0.4. If you upgrade Impala to beta version 0.4, you must upgrade Cloudera Manager to 4.1.3.

Incompatible changes introduced in Cloudera Manager 4.1.2

The alternatives priority of MapReduce 1 MR1 is now higher than that of MR2 (YARN). This means that the MR1 configuration will take priority by default. In previous releases, if both MR1 and MR2 were installed, MR2 took higher priority. To restore the MR2 to a higher priority, go to the Configuration tab of the YARN service, search for "alternatives" and set the priority to a higher value than the equivalent value for MR1. (By default in Cloudera Manager 4.1.2, YARN is set to 91, and MR1 is set to 92).

Cloudera Manager 4.1.2 supports only version 0.3 of the Cloudera Impala Beta Release. It does not support the earlier beta versions. If you upgrade your Cloudera Manager installation, you must also upgrade Impala to beta version 0.3. If you upgrade Impala to beta version 0.3, you must upgrade Cloudera Manager to 4.1.2.
