Configuring a peer
Before you replicate data from source cluster to destination cluster, you must connect the Cloudera Manager with the peer and then test the connectivity.
If your cluster uses SAML Authentication, see Configuring peers with SAML authentication before configuring a peer.
From Cloudera Manager, select
. If there are no existing peers, a Add Peer button appears along
with a short message. If peers already exist, they appear in the Peers list.
- Click Add Peer.
In the Add Peer dialog box, provide a name, the peer URL
(including the port) of the Cloudera Manager Server source for the data to be replicated,
and the login credentials for that server.
Cloudera recommends that TLS/SSL be used. A warning is shown if the URL scheme is http instead of https. After configuring both peers to use TLS/SSL, add the remote source Cloudera Manager TLS/SSL certificate to the local Cloudera Manager truststore, and vice versa.
- Click the Add button in the dialog box to create the peer relationship.
