Configuring a Peer Relationship

You must connect Cloudera Manager with the peer and later test the connectivity.

If your cluster uses SAML Authentication, see before configuring a peer.
  1. From Cloudera Manager, select Replication > Peers in the left navigation bar. If there are no existing peers, you will see only an Add Peer button in addition to a short message. If peers already exist, they display in the Peers list.
  2. Click Add Peer.
  3. In the Add Peer dialog box, provide a name, the peer URL (including the port) of the Cloudera Manager Server source for the data to be replicated, and the login credentials for that server.

    Cloudera recommends that TLS/SSL be used. A warning is shown if the URL scheme is http instead of https. After configuring both peers to use TLS/SSL, add the remote source Cloudera Manager TLS/SSL certificate to the local Cloudera Manager truststore, and vice versa.

  4. Click the Add button in the dialog box to create the peer relationship.
The peer is added to the Peers list. Cloudera Manager automatically tests the connection between the Cloudera Manager Server and the peer. You can also click Test Connectivity to test the connection. Test Connectivity also tests the Kerberos configuration for the clusters. For more information about this part of the test, see
