Ambari Managed HDF Upgrade for IBM Power Systems
Also available as:

Upgrade the HDF Management Pack

About This Task

A management pack bundles service definitions, stack definitions, and stack add-on service definitions so they do not need to be included with the Ambari core functionality and can be updated in between major releases. Upgrade the management pack to ensure that you have the latest versions of the available Apache components.

Before You Begin

Get the HDF Management Pack location and build number from the HDF Release Notes.


  1. Back up your Ambari resources folder:
