Creating a Pre-Deployed Cloudera Manager Host

Complete the steps below to create a Cloudera Manager virtual machine image.

  1. Instantiate a virtual machine image (an AMI, if you are using Amazon Web Services) based on a supported operating system and start the virtual machine. See the documentation for your virtualization environment for details.
  2. Install Cloudera Manager and configure a database. You can configure either a local or remote database.
  3. Wait for the Cloudera Manager Admin console to become active.
  4. Log in to the Cloudera Manager Admin console.
  5. Download any parcels for Runtime or other services managed by Cloudera Manager. Do not distribute or activate the parcels.
  6. Log in to the Cloudera Manager server host:
    1. Run the following command to stop the Cloudera Manager service: service cloudera-scm-server stop
    2. Run the following command to disable autostarting of the cloudera-scm-server service:
      • RHEL 7.x /CentOS 7.x.x:
        systemctl disable cloudera-scm-server.service
      • Ubuntu:
        update-rc.d -f cloudera-scm-server remove
  7. Create an image of the Cloudera Manager host.
  8. If you installed the Cloudera Manager database on a remote host, also create an image of the database host.
