Here are some notes from the DataStax Enterprise Best Practices White Paper:

Upgrading from DataStax Community (DSC) or Apache Cassandra to DSE is just like upgrading

from one version to another. Before upgrading to DSE, DataStax recommends upgrading to the

version of Cassandra contained in the DSE release you are targeting. The only additional step
configuring the cluster (step 4 above), the snitch needs to move from being specified in the

cassandra.yaml file to being specified in the dse.yaml file. Details can be found here:

Hi Jack
Thanks for the reply .

I am looking to migrate from raw Cassandra to the DSE enterprise ?

i) is migrating as simple as downloading the DSE binaries and a restart maybe 

ii) any configurations that I need to modify in yaml

iii) I am on raw version 1.25. Do I need to get this to a particular version to be compatible
with DSE

iv) any link to a white paper or a blog that shows a step by step would be appreciated

  Are you asking how to do a fresh DSE install, or how to migrate from raw Cassandra to DSE?
Or, are you asking about DataStax Community Edition?

  DataStax Enterprise:

  DataStax Community Edition:

  AFAIK, there is no puppet support for DSE at this time.

  How and where do we include these binaries in a apache cassandra installation .
  I would like to include these in a puppet configuration.
