Step 1: Run the Cloudera Manager Server Installer

Download the Cloudera Manager installer to the cluster host to which you are installing the Cloudera Manager Server. By default, the automated installer binary (cloudera-manager-installer.bin) installs the highest version of Cloudera Manager.

For information on downloading the CDP Private Cloud Base Trial installer, see CDP Private Cloud Base Trial Download Information.
  1. Run the Cloudera Manager installer:
    1. Change cloudera-manager-installer.bin to have execute permissions:
      chmod u+x cloudera-manager-installer.bin
    2. Run the Cloudera Manager Server installer:
      sudo ./cloudera-manager-installer.bin
    3. For clusters without Internet access: Install Cloudera Manager packages from a local repository:
      sudo ./cloudera-manager-installer.bin --skip_repo_package=1
  2. Read and accept the associated license agreements. After you accept the licenses, the installer does the following:
    1. Installs the Cloudera Manager repository files.
    2. Installs the Oracle JDK.
    3. Installs the Cloudera Manager Server and embedded PostgreSQL packages.
    4. Starts the embedded PostgreSQL database and Cloudera Manager Server.
  3. Exit the installer:
    1. When the installation completes, the complete URL for the Cloudera Manager Admin Console displays, including the port number (7180 by default). Make a note of this URL.
    2. Press Enter to choose OK to exit the installer, and then again to acknowledge the successful installation.
    3. Wait several minutes for the Cloudera Manager Server to start. To observe the startup process, run sudo tail -f /var/log/cloudera-scm-server/cloudera-scm-server.log on the Cloudera Manager Server host. When you see the following 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.
