Unsupported Customizations

Hortonworks cannot guarantee that default NiFi processors are compatible with proprietary protocol implementations or proprietary interface extensions. For example, we support interfaces like JMS and JDBC that are built around standards, specifications, or open protocols. But we do not support customizations of those interfaces, or proprietary extensions built on top of those interfaces.

Deprecated Technologies

This section points out any technology from previous releases that has been deprecated or removed from this release (operating systems, Java versions, databases, product features). Use this section as a guide for your implementation plans.

Deprecated

Technology that Hortonworks is removing in a future release. Deprecated items are supported until they are removed; deprecation gives you time to plan for removal.

Removed

Technology that Hortonworks has removed from production and is no longer supported.

Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures

The following CVEs have been fixed in HDF 3.0.1.1.

CVE-2016-8746

Summary: Apache Ranger path matching issue in policy evaluation
Severity: Normal
Vendor: Hortonworks
Versions Affected: All HDF versions 2.0.x and 2.1.x using Apache Ranger versions 0.6.0/0.6.1/0.6.2.
Users affected: All users of the ranger policy admin tool.
Impact: Ranger policy engine incorrectly matches paths in certain conditions when a policy contains wildcards and recursive flags.
Fix detail: Fixed policy evaluation logic
Recommended Action: Users should upgrade to HDF 3.0.0 (with Apache Ranger 0.7.0+)

CVE-2016-8751

Summary: Apache Ranger stored cross site scripting issue
Severity: Normal
Vendor: Hortonworks
Versions Affected: HDF versions 2.0.x, 2.1.x using Apache Ranger versions 0.6.0/0.6.1/0.6.2.
Users affected: All users of the ranger policy admin tool.
Impact: Apache Ranger is vulnerable to a Stored Cross-Site Scripting when entering custom policy conditions. Admin users can store some arbitrary javascript code execute when normal users login and access policies.
Fix detail: Added logic to sanitize the user input.
Recommended Action: Users should upgrade to HDF 3.0.0 (with Apache Ranger 0.7.0+)

CVE-2017-7676

Summary: Apache Ranger policy evaluation ignores characters after ‘*’ wildcard character
Severity: Critical
Vendor: Hortonworks
Versions Affected: HDF versions 2.0.x, 2.1.x.
Users affected: Environments that use Ranger policies with characters after ‘*’ wildcard character – like my*test, test*.txt
Impact: Policy resource matcher ignores characters after ‘*’ wildcard character, which can result in unintended behavior.
Fix detail: Ranger policy resource matcher was updated to correctly handle wildcard matches.
Recommended Action: Upgrade to HDF 3.0.0.

CVE-2017-7677

Summary: Apache Ranger Hive Authorizer should check for RWX permission when external location is specified
Severity: Critical
Vendor: Hortonworks
Versions Affected: HDF versions 2.0.x, 2.1.x.
Users affected: Environments that use external location for hive tables
Impact: In environments that use external location for hive tables, Apache Ranger Hive Authorizer should check for RWX permission for the external location specified for create table.
Fix detail: Ranger Hive Authorizer was updated to correctly handle permission check with external location.
Recommended Action: Upgrade to HDF 3.0.0.

Component

Summary

BUG-82327 Streaming Analytics Manager

Issue: In HA installations of SAM, you may run into a situation where bootstrap has not been executed.

Result: When bootstrap has not been started, the UI displays the following message:

1. No component definitions found.
2. Please run ./bin/streamline bootstrap to 
initialize the component definitions.

Workaround for a secured cluster:

kinit -kt /etc/security/keytabs/streamline.service.keytab 
streamline-{cluster_name_in_lower-case}@domain

Workaround for an unsecured cluster:

cd /usr/hdf/current/streamline
./bootstrap/bootstrap.sh
BUG-82681AMBARI-21261Ambari/ NiFi

Issue: When NiFi is installed on an Ambari-managed HDP cluster, NiFi information is not available in Ambari Metrics.

Workaround: There is no workaround for this issue.

BUG-82311AMBARI-21263Ambari/Solr/NiFi

Issue: The Ambari Server upgrade fails when the HDP Search (Solr) or HDF management pack is installed.

BUG-82561AMBARI-21291Ambari/HDF

Issue: You may experience a schema error when upgrading to Ambari 2.5.1.

Error Message:

WARN [main] DBAccessorImpl:814 - Error executing query: UPDATE request AS a SET cluster_host_info = b.cluster_host_info FROM stage AS b WHERE a.request_id = b.request_id, errorCode = 0, message = ERROR: column b.cluster_host_info does not exist 
Position: 45 
20 Jun 2017 19:45:23,466 ERROR [main] SchemaUpgradeHelper:209 - Upgrade failed. 
org.postgresql.util.PSQLException: ERROR: column b.cluster_host_info does not exist 
Position: 45

Workaround: To work around this issue, re-add the column to the stage table before issuing the 'ambari-server upgrade' command.

Example for updating the Ambari Postgres database:

  1. psql -U ambari (default password is 'bigdata')

  2. alter table stage add column cluster_host_info bytea not null default '{}';
