    D s item

    <x.y> is the major-minor release version.

Upgrade other components

Depending on your upgrade path, you may be required to upgrade external components. 

  • For more information on supported Hadoop components, see Install Reference in the Install Guide.

D s item

  1. Do not uninstall the database.

  2. Upgrade:


    NOTE: During the upgrade, you should use the upgrade directive for Yum. Avoid using the remove and install directives, which require manual migration of your saved configuration afterward. Please verify that you have backed up your pre-release configuration files before proceeding.

    1. Without Internet access: If the 

      D s item
       does not have Internet access, you must install using the local dependencies. 

      1. Instead of using the install directive for Yum, you must use the upgrade directive. 

      2. For more information, see Install Dependencies without Internet Access in the Install Guide.

      3. When finished, please return to the next step in these instructions.

    2. For CentOS/RHEL: Upgrade the package with yum, using root. Please execute the following commands:

      Code Block
      sudo yum upgrade trifacta
    3. For Ubuntu: Upgrade using apt-get, using root:

      Code Block
      sudo dpkg -i <new-trifacta-binary>.deb

      The above might generate an error, which is ok. Continue:

      Code Block
      sudo apt-get -f -y upgrade
  3. Since the upgrade process does not modify the databases, the metadata for the older jobs should still persist.

If it is not already in the appropriate directory, move license.json into the deployment. Example:

Code Block
cp /tmp/license.json /opt/trifacta/license/license.json

See License Key in the Install Guide.

Set File Ownership


All files in the

D s item
iteminstall directory
and sub-directories must be owned by the same user that is used to run the
D s platform
. Mismatches in ownership and execution permissions can cause services to fail to start.


Before you upgrade, please complete the following:

  1. Login to the 
    D s node
     as the root user.
  2. Execute the following command. The user that is being granted ownership of the install directory is trifacta, which is the default user that runs the platform. If you are using a different user to run your 

    D s item
    , please substitute that name.

    Code Block
    chown -R trifacta:trifacta /opt/trifacta

Do not restart the platform yet. Additional configuration is required first.
