Migrating from Parcels to Packages

Minimum Required Role: Cluster Administrator (also provided by Full Administrator)

To migrate from a parcel to the same version packages, perform the following steps. To upgrade to a different version, see Upgrading CDH and Managed Services Using Cloudera Manager.

  1. Install CDH and Managed Service Packages
  2. Deactivate Parcels
  3. Restart the Cluster
  4. Remove and Delete Parcels

Install CDH and Managed Service Packages

Choose a Repository Strategy

To install CDH and Managed Service Packages, choose one of the following repository strategies:

  • Standard Cloudera repositories. For this method, ensure you have added the required repository information to your systems.
  • Internally hosted repositories. You might use internal repositories for environments where hosts do not have access to the Internet. For information about preparing your environment, see Understanding Custom Installation Solutions. When using an internal repository, you must copy the repo or list file to the Cloudera Manager Server host and update the repository properties to point to internal repository URLs.
