Patching a Non-Secure Cluster

The following steps show how to patch a secure cluster when you are unable to establish a secure connection. Once the fix is complete, no further action is required except to access the MCS and other web interfaces, such as the JobTracker UI and the ResourceManager UI.
  1. Determine which nodes in the cluster run the webserver role. For example:
    $ maprcli node list -columns configuredservice -filter '[configuredservice==webserver]'
    hostname  configuredservice                                    ip
    centos21  webserver,nodemanager,cldb,fileserver,resourcemanager,hoststats  10.10.82.21 
                            
  2. Perform the following steps on each webserver node:
    1. Download the script from the following location: https://package.mapr.com/scripts/mcs/
      wget https://package.mapr.com/scripts/mcs/fixssl
    2. Run the following command to update the permissions on the file:
      chmod 755 fixssl
    3. Run the following command to run the script:
      sudo ./fixssl
    Once you run the script, the following is displayed:
    Webserver restarted. Issue should be resolved"
The fixssl script performs the following steps on a node in a secure cluster:
  1. Updates manageSSLKeys.sh to use the new certificate cipher algorithm.
  2. Backs up the existing certificates so that new versions can be generated with the new cipher algorithm:
    • /opt/mapr/conf/ssl_keystore is renamed to /opt/mapr/conf/ssl_keystore_old
    • /opt/mapr/comf/ssl_truststore is renamed to /opt/mapr/comf/ssl_truststore_old
  3. Runs /opt/mapr/server/configure.sh -R to generate new versions of the keystore and truststore files.
  4. Restarts the webserver.
