Upgrading MapR Core Without the MapR Installer

You can upgrade MapR Core without using the MapR Installer.

First, you perform an offline or rolling upgrade of the MapR core manually. Next, you configure the new version to enable support of MapR core features. Finally, you upgrade ecosystem components manually.

When upgrading, you can install packages from the following sources:
  • The MapR internet repository
  • A local repository
  • Individual package files

Go to the next topic to begin setting up repositories.

When you are finished upgrading MapR core, you will need to follow the steps to upgrade the ecosystem components, as described in Upgrading the Expansion Pack Without the MapR Installer.
Note: MapR 6.0 and later releases are only compatible with MEP 4.0.0 and later MEPs (see MEP Support by MapR Core Version). If you upgrade MapR Core to MapR 6.0 or later, you must install or upgrade to MEP 4.0.0 or later. Clusters with MEP 3.0.1 or later are allowed to upgrade to MapR 6.0 or later, but such clusters must not enable new features, add new services, add new nodes, or make configuration changes until MEP 3.0.1 or later is upgraded to MEP 4.0.0 or later.

Then proceed to Finishing the MapR Core Upgrade.
