Instantiating a Cloudera Manager Image
Complete the following steps to create a new Cloudera Manager instance from a virtual machine image.
- Instantiate the Cloudera Manager image.
- If the Cloudera Manager database will be hosted on a remote host, also instantiate the database host image.
- Ensure that the
cloudera-scm-serverservice is not running by running the following command on the Cloudera Manager host:
If it is running, stop it using the following command:
service cloudera-scm-server status
service cloudera-scm-server stop
- On the Cloudera Manager host, create a file named
/etc/cloudera-scm-serverdirectory. Add a globally unique identifier to this file using the following command:
The existence of this file informs Cloudera Manager to reinitialize its own unique identifier when it starts.
cat /proc/sys/kernel/random/uuid > /etc/cloudera-scm-server/uuid
- Run the following command to start the Cloudera Manager service:
service cloudera-scm-server start
- Run the following command to enable automatic restart for the
chkconfig cloudera-scm-server on
- RHEL 7.x /CentOS
systemctl enable cloudera-scm-server.service
update-rc.d -f cloudera-scm-server defaults
