Initializing Solr and creating HDFS home directory

After installing the Solr service and setting up Kerberos authentication, you need to initialize the service and create the HDFS home directory. Without this, the Solr service fails to start.

  1. In Cloudera Manager select the cluster where you want to initialize the Solr service.
  2. Select the Solr service you want to initialize.
  3. To initialize the Solr service select Actions > Initialize Solr.
  4. To create the HDFS Home directory, select Actions > Create HDFS Home Dir.
  5. Repeat these steps on all Solr services (Infra or workload) you need to initialize in the cluster.
