Issues Fixed in Altus Director
The following sections describe fixed issues in each Altus Director release.
Issues Fixed in Altus Director 6.1
LDAP authentication causes errors in usage-based billing
Altus Director can be configured to use a backing LDAP server, such as OpenLDAP or Active Directory, for its own user accounts. When configured as such, Altus Director fails to correctly collect usage information from itself that is needed to perform usage-based billing. This does not affect the normal functioning of Altus Director, but only causes the creation of malformed usage information that Cloudera is unable to process into billing records.
Cloudera Issue: DIR-8905
Incorrect migration of Cloudera Altus Director database from H2 to MySQL causes upgrade to fail
The previously published instructions for migrating Altus Director data from H2 to MySQL resulted in an incorrect schema. This schema allows Altus Director to operate, but causes problems when you upgrade Altus Director to a later version.
The instructions in the Altus Director documentation are now fixed. To migrate Altus Director data from H2 to MySQL, follow the instructions in Migrating the Altus Director Database.
If you followed the incorrect instructions for migrating Altus Director data from H2 to MySQL, you can fix the database schema so that you do not encounter problems when you upgrade Altus Director.
- Stop Altus Director.
- Create a backup of the MySQL database to be fixed.
Use the mysqldump command to back up the data and create a file of the SQL commands. Back up all tables except tables with names that start with PIPELINE_ and tables with names that end in _schema_version.Run the following command:
$ mysqldump -u DatabaseUser -p -h DatabaseServer --no-create-info DatabaseName \ SERVER_CONFIGS \ USERS AUTHORITIES \ ENVIRONMENTS \ INSTANCE_TEMPLATES \ DEPLOYMENTS \ EXTERNAL_DATABASE_SERVERS \ CLUSTERS CLUSTER_UPDATE_EVENTS > directordump.sql
The --no-create-info parameter ensures that the command does not export the incorrect schemas.
- Create a new MySQL external database and configure Altus Director to use the new external database.
For more information about creating and configuring a MySQL database for Altus Director, see Using MySQL for Altus Director Server.
- Start Altus Director and wait until the initialization process completes and the server is ready.
During the initialization process, Altus Director creates the required schema in the MySQL database configured for its use.
- Stop Altus Director again.
- Delete the default data from the AUTHORITIES, USERS, and SERVER_CONFIGS tables in the new external MySQL database.
Run the following command:
mysql -u Databaseuser -p -h DatabaseServer \ -Bse "DELETE FROM AUTHORITIES; DELETE FROM USERS; DELETE FROM SERVER_CONFIGS;" \ DatabaseName
- Load the backup data into the new external MySQL database.
Run the following command:
mysql -u Databaseuser -p -h DatabaSeserver DatabaseName < directordump.sql
- Start Altus Director again.
Cloudera Issue: DIR-8507
Failure to install Cloudera Manager repositories behind a proxy
When Altus Director 6.0 runs behind a proxy, it is unable to perform a remote lookup on the version of Cloudera Manager in a package repository which is available over the internet.
Cloudera Issue: DIR-8758
Deployment refresh for Cloudera Manager 6 fails
Altus Director regularly refreshes its knowledge of Cloudera Manager deployments to pick up recent changes. It is common for the URL of the GPG signing key for Cloudera Manager 6 packages to be unavailable after installation. When this happens, Altus Director's refresh process fails with an exception and does not complete.
Cloudera Issue: DIR-8867
Incorrect Kerberos administrative password in rendered HOCON
In cases where Altus Director returns HOCON for a deployment template, such as exporting a cluster configuration file, the Kerberos administrative password, if present, was rendered instead as the Kerberos administrative username.
Cloudera Issue: DIR-8791
The convert-remote CLI command not listed in usage message
The documented convert-remote CLI command in Altus Director Client is not listed in the usage message output by the CLI. The command works as documented.
Cloudera Issue: DIR-8797
AWS "User data (unencoded)" field in Altus Director UI does not support newlines
If the user tries to provide AWS EC2 User Data that includes newlines using the "User data (unencoded)" in the UI, the specified value is not persisted properly.
Cloudera Issue: DIR-8557
Lowercase Cloudera Director roles in LDAP role mappings do not work under Active Directory
Cloudera Issue: DIR-8552
Failure to install Cloudera Manager repository definition when Cloudera Manager is already installed
When using an image which already has Cloudera Manager installed, Altus Director may still be instructed to install a different version, resulting in the presence of repository definitions for two different Cloudera Manager versions. This causes Altus Director to become confused about which version is correct, resulting in failure.
