    Error Message: AWSE Deployments Upgrading from a 24.2.x Release
    Completed EFS mounting
    Completed EFS attachment to EC2
    Starting Services
    Failed to start Services. Failure while starting services. Failure reading configuration file. The following properties were invalid: paths.copyintoerrors

    Before you upgrade

    To avoid the error, remove the following line from /opt/dremio/conf/dremio.conf before you run the AWSE upgrade:

    paths.copyintoerrors = "dremioS3:///dremio-xxxxxxxxxx/dremio/copyintoerrors"

    Resolve the error if you already upgraded

    If you already upgraded and encountered the error, follow these steps:

    1. Restore your AWSE 24.2.x installation.

    2. Remove the following line from /opt/dremio/conf/dremio.conf:

      paths.copyintoerrors = "dremioS3:///dremio-xxxxxxxxxx/dremio/copyintoerrors"
    3. Stop Dremio and re-run the AWSE upgrade to 24.3.1.

      If you do not have a backup, contact Dremio technical support to discuss the steps outlined in the knowledge-base article AWSE upgrade fails with "The following properties were invalid: paths.copyintoerror".

    DX-68571

  • The COPY INTO command now supports Parquet files.

    DX-68624

  • The COPY INTO command supports two new format options for CSV source files: EXTRACT_HEADER and SKIP_LINES.

  • You can now use tabs in the SQL Runner to work on multiple tasks simultaneously. All of your work in each tab is autosaved.

    DX-68951

  • You can see a view definition or Nessie table definition if you have the SELECT privilege, although editing a view definition requires further privileges.

    DX-82679

  • The dataset details panel in the SQL runner no longer overlays the right side of the SQL runner and the catalog page. Whenever it is opened, the width of the page is reduced so that controls are not hidden.

    DX-82691

  • The COPY INTO command now supports specifying which Nessie branch or reference the target table is in.

    DX-83269

  • The Save As View dialog now allows you to create a folder while saving a view.

    DX-83562

  • New in dremio-cloud-tools:

    • Dremio executor nodes now have new two configuration variables for use only in the context of autoscaling on Kubernetes:

      VariableDefault
      node_lifecycle_service_enabledFalse
      dremio.termination_grace_period_seconds5

      Enabling the lifecycle service forces the executor to continue to process existing in-flight queries even after a SIGTERM is received. It continues for a duration up to the value specified by dremio.termination_grace_period_seconds. This ensures clean completion of work in the event of executor scale down.

      DC-58905

    • A larger PVC volume is now used for the KVStore by default.

      DX-85624

    • Changes were made to the Liveliness probe to work around a bug in the source ZooKeeper image. The bug is reported here.

What's New

  • This release adds support for Sign-On (SSO) with Microsoft Power BI. For more information, see Enabling Single Sign-On.
  • You can optimize Iceberg tables to maximize the speed and efficiency of data retrieval. Rewrite data files using a compaction process to combine small files into larger files or split large files to reduce metadata overhead and runtime file open costs. For more information, see Optimizing Tables.
    DX-55479
  • You can roll back to a previous state of an Iceberg table using either a snapshot ID or a timestamp reference. For more information, see Rolling Back Tables.
    DX-54159
  • Dremio’s new COPY INTO SQL command makes it even easier and faster to load data into Apache Iceberg tables, which are a foundational component data lakehouses. With one command, you can now copy data from CSV and JSON stored in Amazon S3, Azure Data Lake Storage (ADLS), HDFS, and other supported data sources into Apache Iceberg tables using the columnar Parquet file format for performance. Dremio efficiently distributes the copy operation across the entire engine to load data more quickly. For more information, see Copying Data Into Apache Iceberg Tables.
    DX-46107
  • In the SQL editor, you can now format your SQL using the Format SQL shortcut (Cmd + Shift + f or Ctrl + Shift + f). As long as the current syntax is valid, the SQL formatter applies a conventional style to your query by aligning commands for readability. For more information, see SQL Editor.
    DX-40727
  • The LIKE SQL function now supports the ANY, SOME, and ALL keywords. For more information, see LIKE.
    DX-56364

Breaking Changes

Mixing Implicit and Explicit Joins

If you mix implicit and explicit joins, only the last of the implicitly joined tables can be in the ON clause. Otherwise you will receive a "Table not found" error. For example, the following query results in the error Table 'c' not found.

select *
from
NAS2."customer.parquet" c,
NAS2."nation.parquet" n
left join
NAS2."orders.parquet" as o
on c.c_custkey = o.o_custkey

The solution is to replace the comma with an explicit cross join like this:

select *
from
NAS2."customer.parquet" c
cross join
NAS2."nation.parquet" n
left join
NAS2."orders.parquet" as o
on c.c_custkey = o.o_custkey

This is functionally equivalent since implicit joins implement a cross product of the two tables.

Broadcast Table Hints

Dremio v24 supports BROADCAST hints in queries. Hints must be entered as /*+ <hint> */, which is standard across data warehouses. In previous versions of Dremio, text enclosed in /* */ was treated as a comment. Dremio will continue to treat text enclosed in /* */ as a comment unless the first character is +. The use of unrecognized hints will result in an error. For more information, see Distributing Data Evenly Across Executor Nodes During Joins.

Known Issues

  • This version of Dremio does not support Iceberg tables written with equality deletes.

    DX-52677

  • DML operations (INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE, MERGE) are not supported on tables with MAP columns. CTAS is supported on tables with MAP columns.

    DX-57005

  • Currently, Dremio cannot read timestamp microseconds from Parquet files which have been written with dictionary encoding. Queries involving a microsecond column will not return any data (fixed in Dremio 24.0.1).
