Subject Re: Ambari 2.1 rolling upgrade not updating properties changed in a configuration group?
Date Tue, 01 Sep 2015 17:32:11 GMT
Yes, that is by design. Rolling Upgrade across a major stack version (such
as HDP 2.2 -> 2.3) will merge configs as follows,
Assume HDP 2.3 stack contains configs C1 ... Cn, with values V1 ... Vn.
If HDP 2.2 contains any of those configs, and the user also modified the
value, then Ambari will preserve the modified value coming from the HDP
2.2 stack.
This is because the user probably had good reason to modify the property,
and we should not blindly force it on the newer value.
The upgrade from HDP 2.2 -> 2.3 also has instructions to remove and rename
properties from the previous stack version.
