Table 3.1. HDP 2.6.1 JDK Support

JDKVersion
Open SourceJDK8
JDK7, deprecated
OracleJDK 8
JDK 7, deprecated

Open JDK does not run on SLES 11.

[Note]Note

JDK support depends on your choice of HDP Stack.

Database Requirements

Ambari requires a relational database to store information about the cluster configuration and topology. If you install HDP Stack with Hive or Oozie, they also require a relational database.

The following table outlines these database requirements:

Description

Druid

PostgreSQL 9.1.13+, 9.3, 9.4***

MariaDB 10.1*

MySQL 5.6****

 

Hive

PostgreSQL 9.1.13+, 9.3, 9.4***

MariaDB 10.1*

MySQL 5.6****

Oracle 11gr2

Oracle 12c**

By default (on RHEL/CentOS/Oracle Linux 6), Ambari installs an instance of MySQL on the Hive Metastore host. Otherwise, you need to use an existing instance of PostgreSQL, MySQL or Oracle.

Hue

PostgreSQL 9.1.13+, 9.3

MySQL 5.6****

Oracle 11gr2

Oracle 12c**

sqlite

sqlite is the default.

Oozie

MariaDB 10.1*

MySQL 5.6****

Oracle 11gr2

Oracle 12c**

By default, Ambari installs an instance of Derby on the Oozie Server host. Optionally, you can use an existing instance of PostgreSQL, MySQL or Oracle.

Do Not Use the default instance of Derby for a production environment. If you plan to use Derby for a demo, development or test environment, migration of the Oozie database from Derby to a new database is only available in the community.

Ranger

PostgreSQL 9.1.13+, 9.3, 9.4***

MariaDB 10.1*

MySQL 5.6****

Oracle 11gr2

Oracle 12c**

You must have an existing instance of PostgreSQL , MySQL or Oracle available for Ranger.

* If using HDP 2.5, MariaDB 10 database is only supported on RHEL/CentOS/Oracle Linux 7 or SLES 12.

** Use of an existing Oracle 12c database is only supported with HDP 2.3 or later.

*** Use of an existing PostgreSQL 9.4 is only supported with HDP 2.5 or later.

**** Use of an existing MySQL 5.6 database is only supported with the default, InnoDB engine.

[Important]Important

For the Ambari database, if you use an existing Oracle database, make sure the Oracle listener runs on a port other than 8080 to avoid conflict with the default Ambari port.

[Important]Important

Using the Microsoft SQL Server or SQL Anywhere database options are not supported.
