Installing Cloudbreak on Your Own VM
This is an advanced deployment option. Select this option if you have custom VM requirements. Otherwise, you should use one of the pre-built images and follow these instructions:
To launch the Cloudbreak deployer and install the Cloudbreak application, your system must meet the following requirements:
- Minimum VM requirements: 16GB RAM, 40GB disk, 4 cores
- Supported operating systems: RHEL, CentOS, and Oracle Linux 7 (64-bit)
- Docker 1.9.1 must be installed
You can install Cloudbreak on Mac OS X for evaluation purposes only. Mac OS X is not supported for a production deployment of Cloudbreak.
To launch the Cloudbreak deployer and install the Cloudbreak application, you must first meet the following prerequisites:
Ports 22 (SSH), 80 (HTTPS), and 443 (HTTPS) must be open.
Every command must be executed as root. In order to get root privileges execute:
Ensure that your system is up-to-date by executing:
yum -y update
Reboot it if necessary.
yum -y install iptables-services net-tools
Without iptables-services installed the
iptables save command will not be available.
Next, configure permissive iptables on your machine:
iptables --flush INPUT && \ iptables --flush FORWARD && \ service iptables save
Additionally, review the following prerequisites:
Install Cloudbreak on Your Own VM
Install Cloudbreak using the following steps.
Install the Cloudbreak deployer and unzip the platform-specific single binary to your PATH. For example:
yum -y install unzip tar curl -Ls public-repo-1.hortonworks.com/HDP/cloudbreak/cloudbreak-deployer_2.4.0_Linux_x86_64.tgz | sudo tar -xz -C /bin cbd cbd --version
Once the Cloudbreak deployer is installed, you can set up the Cloudbreak application.
Create a Cloudbreak deployment directory and navigate to it:
mkdir cloudbreak-deployment cd cloudbreak-deployment
In the directory, create a file called
Profilewith the following content:
export UAA_DEFAULT_SECRET=MY-SECRET export UAA_DEFAULT_USER_PW=MY-PASSWORD export UAA_DEFAULT_USER_EMAIL=MY-EMAIL
export UAA_DEFAULT_SECRET=MySecret123 export UAA_DEFAULT_USER_PW=MySecurePassword123 export UAA_DEFAULT_USER_EMAILfirstname.lastname@example.org
You will need to provide the email and password when logging in to the Cloudbreak web UI and when using the Cloudbreak CLI. The secret will be used by Cloudbreak for authentication.
Generate configurations by executing:
rm *.yml cbd generate
The cbd start command includes the cbd generate command which applies the following steps:
- Creates the
docker-compose.ymlfile, which describes the configuration of all the Docker containers required for the Cloudbreak deployment.
- Creates the
uaa.ymlfile, which holds the configuration of the identity server used to authenticate users with Cloudbreak.
- Creates the
Start the Cloudbreak application by using the following commands:
cbd pull cbd start
This will start the Docker containers and initialize the application. The first time you start the Coudbreak app, the process will take longer than usual due to the download of all the necessary docker images.
Next, check Cloudbreak application logs:
cbd logs cloudbreak
You should see a message like this in the log:
Started CloudbreakApplication in 36.823 seconds.Cloudbreak normally takes less than a minute to start.
