Configuring a Custom Java Home LocationAlthough not recommended, the Java Development Kit (JDK),, may be installed at a custom location if necessary. These steps assume you have already installed the JDK as documented in Step 2: Install Java Development Kit.Creating a Runtime Cluster Using a Cloudera Manager TemplateYou can create a new cluster by exporting a cluster template from an existing cluster managed by Cloudera Manager.
