Preparing a New Cluster

The new cluster into which you import the cluster template must meet the following requirements:

  • Database for Cloudera Manager is installed and configured.
  • Cloudera Manager is installed and running.
  • All required databases for Runtime services are installed. See Step 4: Install and Configure Databases.
  • The JDK is installed on all cluster hosts.
  • The Cloudera Manager Agent is installed and configured on all cluster hosts.
  • If the source cluster uses Kerberos, the new cluster must have KDC properties and privileges configured in Cloudera Manager.
