Updating the Installer

Update the Installer to include the latest ecosystem packages and installer fixes. Once you update the Installer, you can install ecosystem components and software versions that were made available after you first configured the Installer.

To check the version of the Installer, see Checking the MapR Installer Version.

Upgrades from Installer 1.5 to 1.6 or Later

If you upgrade from Installer 1.5 to 1.6 or later, it is important to know if your cluster uses two-digit or three-digit MEPs. Some Installer 1.6 or later features, such as Extend Cluster, require you to use three-digit MEPs. If you want to use the Extend Cluster feature, you must perform an Incremental Install to change the MEP selection for your cluster. For more information, see Understanding Two-Digit and Three-Digit MEPs.

Update the Installer using an Internet Repository

If the node that runs the Installer uses an Internet repository that points to package.mapr.com, use one of the following methods to gain access to the latest packages:
  • Run the following command:
    bash /opt/mapr/installer/bin/mapr-setup.sh
  • Use a package manager to update the packages:
    On CentOS/RedHat
    yum update mapr-installer mapr-installer-definitions
    On Ubuntu
    apt-get install mapr-installer mapr-installer-definitions
    On SUSE
    zypper update mapr-installer mapr-installer-definitions
Note: If you are currently running the Installer Version 1.0.201505130546, you must re-run the mapr-setup.sh script after you use the package manager to update the packages. To check the Installer version, see the link earlier on this page.

Once the update is complete, open the Installer URL (https://<hostname/IPaddress>:9443) to update the cluster.

Update the Installer using a Local Repository

If the node that runs the Installer uses a local repository, perform the following steps to manually get the latest packages for the cluster version that you are updating or upgrading to:
  1. Download the latest versions of the following archive files.
    For MapR 5.2 and above
    For MapR 5.0 and 5.1 The MapR archive file.Download the mapr-5.0-5.1.<yyyymmdd><dep|rpm>.tgz archive file from one of the following locations, based on the operating system of the node:
  2. Run the following command:
    bash /opt/mapr/installer/bin/mapr-setup.sh -a <full path to each archive file>
  3. Once the update is complete, open the Installer URL (https://<hostname/IPaddress>:9443) to update the cluster.
