1MapReduce (MRv1) metrics are supported only on Red Hat/CentOS 6. MapReduce (MRv1) metrics are not installable on SUSE or RedHat / CentOS 7.

2If you are installing MapR on CentOS Version 6.3 or earlier, see the Known Issues section in the Release Notes.

3Secure MapR clusters are not supported on SuSe 11 platforms.

4MapR 5.2 and 5.1 support Oracle Enterprise Linux for Core installations only. Ecosystem components are not supported.

5 MapR 5.0 supports RHEL/CentOS 7.0, but service management with systemd is not supported. Starting in RHEL/CentOS 7.0, systemd was included alongside the legacy process manager, initd, but was not enabled by default. In RHEL/CentOS 7.1, systemd became the default. Some RHEL/CentOS 7.0 ISOs may have a different default for systemd (on), but these will not work with MapR 5.0. Service management integration with systemd is only supported if you install MapR 5.1 or 5.2 on RHEL/CentOS 7.1. Customers who encounter issues with systemd support may choose to disable systemd on RHEL/CentOS 7.0 nodes, downgrade to RHEL/CentOS 6.x, or upgrade to MapR 5.1 or 5.2.

6MapR does not support RedHat when its kernel patch level is below kernel-2.6.32-504.16.2.el6. Patch levels below kernel-2.6.32-504.16.2.el6 include Linux kernel 3.14-3.17, which has a bug that may cause the following issues:
  • Lost wake-ups between process threads.
  • MapR processes hang.

Tip: You can run the following command to determine the kernel patch level of your operating system: uname -r
