Configuring a Custom Java Home Location

Java, which Cloudera services require, may be installed at a custom location. Follow the installation instructions in: Java Development Kit Installation.

If you choose to use a custom Java location, modify the host configuration to ensure the JDK can be found. If you do not update the configuration, Cloudera services will be unable to find this resource and will not start:
  1. Open the Cloudera Manager Admin Console.
  2. In the main navigation bar, click the Hosts tab and optionally click a specific host link.
  3. Click the Configuration tab.
  4. Select Category > Advanced.
  5. Set the Java Home Directory property to the custom location.
  6. Click Save Changes.
  7. Restart all services.
