Adding a Cluster Using New Hosts

Use the Add Cluster - Installation wizard to create a regular or computer cluster using new hosts.

Minimum Required Role: Cluster Administrator (also provided by Full Administrator) This feature is not available when using Cloudera Manager to manage Data Hub clusters.

On the Cloudera Manager Home page, click the Add drop-down button at the top right, or the Clusters drop-down button at the top left, and then click Add Cluster. This launches the Add Cluster - Installation wizard, which allows you to create either a regular cluster or a compute cluster.

You can also launch the wizard by selecting Add Compute Cluster from the drop-down menu next to the cluster name. Launching the wizard from there skips the Welcome page and restricts the wizard to creating only a compute cluster.
