Minimum Supported Version Recommended Version Exceptions
1.7.0_55 1.7.0_67, 1.7.0_75, 1.7.0_80 None
1.8.0_31 1.8.0_31 Cloudera recommends that you not use JDK 1.8.0_40 and JDK 1.8.0_60 .

Supported Browsers

Hue

Hue works with the two most recent versions of the following browsers. Cookies and JavaScript must be on.
  • Chrome
  • Firefox
  • Safari (not supported on Windows)
  • Internet Explorer
Hue could display in older versions and even other browsers, but you might not have access to all of its features.

Supported Network Protocols

  • CDH requires IPv4. IPv6 is not supported.

    See also Configuring Network Names.

  • Multihoming CDH or Cloudera Manager is not supported outside specifically certified Cloudera partner appliances. Cloudera finds that current Hadoop architectures combined with modern network infrastructures and security practices remove the need for multihoming. Multihoming, however, is beneficial internally in appliance form factors to take advantage of high-bandwidth InfiniBand interconnects.

    Although some subareas of the product may work with unsupported custom multihoming configurations, there are known issues with multihoming. In addition, unknown issues may arise because multihoming is not covered by our test matrix outside the Cloudera-certified partner appliances.
