Upgrading MapR or MEP Components

Depending on your current configuration, you may choose to upgrade the MapR version (MapR Core), ecosystem components, clients, or MapR Monitoring components.

Upgrade Paths

To Upgrade Considerations for Upgrading See for More Information
MapR Core MapR 4.1, 5.0. and 5.1 clusters that were installed using the MapR Installer can use the MapR Installer to upgrade to version 5.2 or a maintenance update such as 5.2.1.
Ecosystem Components With MapR 5.2, you can upgrade ecosystem components only as part of upgrading a MapR Expansion Pack (MEP). If a component is supported by your current MEP, you can add the component at any time by using manual steps or the Incremental Install function of the MapR Installer.
MapR Client MapR client is part of MapR Core. You upgrade MapR client nodes after you upgrade the MapR cluster nodes.
MapR Monitoring
MapR Monitoring components are available as part of the MapR Expansion Pack (MEP) that you selected for the cluster. Once MapR Monitoring is installed, you can upgrade MapR Monitoring components as part of the MEP upgrade process.
Note: For upgrades from MapR 5.1 or prior versions, you can install MapR Monitoring after you upgrade to a MEP.
