Upgrading Search 1.x to Search for CDH 5

In general, to upgrade from CDH 4 to CDH 5 you should follow the upgrade instructions for CDH. Search for CDH 5 is included in the CDH 5 repository. If you are running Cloudera Manager, you must upgrade to Cloudera Manager 5 in order to run CDH 5.

However, because Search 1.x is in a separate repository from CDH 4, you must remove the Search 1.x packages and the Search .repo or .list file prior to performing the CDH upgrade. This is true whether or not you are upgrading through Cloudera Manager.

  1. Remove the Search packages.
    The list of packages you may need to remove are:
    • solr
    • solr-doc
    • solr-mapreduce
    • hbase-solr
    • hbase-solr-doc
    • search
    You can check which packages are installed using one of the following commands, depending on your operating system:
    rpm -qa               # RHEL, Oracle Linux, CentOS, Debian
    dpkg --get-selections # Debian
    Remove the packages using the appropriate remove command for your OS. For example:
    sudo yum remove solr solr-doc solr-mapreduce hbase-solr \
       hbase-solr-doc search      # RHEL, Oracle Linux, CentOS
  2. Remove the Cloudera Search .repo file:
    Operating System File to remove:

    RHEL

    /etc/yum.repos.d/cloudera-search.repo 

    SLES

    /etc/zypp/repos.d/cloudera-search.repo

    Ubuntu or Debian

    /etc/apt/sources.list.d/cloudera.list
  3. Upgrade from CDH 4 to CDH 5 using the appropriate instructions:
  4. If you have upgraded to CDH 5 not using Cloudera Manager, you need to install the new version of Search:
    Operating System Command

    RHEL

    sudo yum install solr-server

    SLES

    sudo zypper install solr-server

    Ubuntu or Debian

    sudo apt-get install solr-server
