Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-11096) Support rolling upgrade between 2.x and 3.x
Date Wed, 11 Jan 2017 00:15:59 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-11096?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15816623#comment-15816623

Andrew Wang commented on HDFS-11096:
------------------------------------

Thanks for checking all this Sean, a couple replies:

* Nice find on HDFS-11312, particularly since it's also an issue in branch-2.8.
* Not sure on the string -> type conversion, but it's in branch-2.8 so it does need confirmation
real soon. I don't see a compatibility discussion on YARN-3583 where this was done.
* The discussion on YARN-4844 explains that int32 and int64 are both just varints under the
hood, so upgrading is okay except for the overflow issue. Since the point of upgrading the
types is to fix overflow, this seems okay to me.
* Moving messages between files seems fine to me, as long we also updated references to point
to the new locations.

>          Components: rolling upgrades

>            Reporter: Andrew Wang

> trunk has a minimum software version of 3.0.0-alpha1. This means we can't rolling upgrade
between branch-2 and trunk.
> This is a showstopper for large deployments. Unless there are very compelling reasons
to break compatibility, let's restore the ability to rolling upgrade to 3.x releases.
