Installing CEM parcel and CSD files

To set up Cloudera Edge Management (CEM) on a CDP Private Cloud Base cluster, you need to add the CEM parcel to your cluster using Cloudera Manager, making the Edge Flow Management service available for installation. Additionally, you also need to upload the Edge Flow Management Custom Service Descriptor (CSD) files to the default CSD directory. These files contain crucial configuration information required to describe and manage the new service effectively.
