Download the CFM Custom Service Descriptor files

A Custom Service Descriptor (CSD) file contains configuration information needed to describe and manage a new service. Download the CSDs for each CFM Service, specify ownership and permissions, and then restart the Cloudera Manager Server.

  1. Download the CSDs for NiFi and NiFi Registry and put them into opt/cloudera/csd.
    You can download the files from the CFM repository. See Download Locations.
  2. Change the CSD owner. In opt/cloudera/csd, enter:
    chown cloudera-scm:cloudera-scm ./*
    chmod 644 ./*
  3. Restart the Cloudera Manager Server.
    sudo service cloudera-scm-server restart
  4. Restart the Cloudera Management Service. From the Cloudera Manager Status tab, select Restart from the Cloudera Management Service drop-down.

When you have finished adding the CSD files, you have completed your CDP Private Cloud Base installation. You can now proceed with installing, securing, and configuring CFM.

Review CFM deployment workflow and Understand your deployment scenario for help deciding whether to install NiFi on a Base cluster or on a Compute cluster. Then follow the tasks outlined in Install NiFi on your Base cluster or Install NiFi on a Compute cluster.
