Step 6: Install Runtime and Other Software

After you set up the Cloudera Manager database, start Cloudera Manager Server and log in to the Cloudera Manager Admin Console. Then proceed through the installation wizard.

  1. Start Cloudera Manager Server:
    sudo systemctl start cloudera-scm-server
  2. If you want to configure the Cloudera Manager server to start automatically when the host reboots, run the following command:
    sudo systemctl enable cloudera-scm-server
  3. Wait several minutes for the Cloudera Manager Server to start. To observe the startup process, run the following on the Cloudera Manager Server host:
    sudo tail -f /var/log/cloudera-scm-server/cloudera-scm-server.log
    When you see this log entry, the Cloudera Manager Admin Console is ready:
    INFO WebServerImpl:com.cloudera.server.cmf.WebServerImpl: Started Jetty server.
    If the Cloudera Manager Server does not start, see Troubleshooting Installation Problems.
  4. In a web browser, go to http://<server_host>:7180, where <server_host> is the FQDN or IP address of the host where the Cloudera Manager Server is running.
  5. Log into Cloudera Manager Admin Console. The default credentials are:

    Username: admin

    Password: admin

After logging in, the installation wizard launches. The following sections guide you through each step of the installation wizard.
