Adding CDP Private Cloud Base cluster for use in Replication Manager

After you register the CDP Private Cloud Base cluster as a classic cluster using Cloudera Manager, you can use the classic cluster as a source cluster in Replication Manager.

  1. Log in to CDP Management Console.
  2. Click Classic Clusters.
  3. On the Classic Clusters page, click ADD CLUSTER.
  4. In the Add Cluster dialog box, go to the CDP Private Cloud Base tab to enter the following details:
    1. IP address - Enter the IP address of the Cloudera Manager of the CDP Private Cloud Base cluster. The Management Console uses this IP address to identify the cluster for registration purposes.
    2. Port - Enter the port of the Cloudera Manager of the CDP Private Cloud Base cluster.
    3. Data center - Enter a unique datacenter name for the CDP Private Cloud Base cluster.
    4. Select the My cluster runs on HTTPS option if the CDP Private Cloud Base cluster uses HTTPS.
    5. Clear the Register KNOX endpoint (Optional) option, if selected.
    6. Click CONNECT.

    The Management Console acquires the configuration details from Cluster Connectivity Manager (CCM) service.

  5. On the Classic Clusters page, click Files in the Step 2 pane.
  6. In the Setup Connectivity Client dialog box, click ccm-autossh-client, and ssh_tunnel_setup_files or cluster_connectivity_setup_files links to download the RPM for AutoSSH from the specified location and the connectivity-installation scripts from CDP, to your machine.
  7. In the Setup Connectivity Client dialog box, click Close.
  8. In the command line interface, copy the RPM and ZIP files to the host where Cloudera Manager is running.
  9. To establish an reverseSSH tunnel between the Cloudera Manager of CDP Private Cloud Base cluster and Management Console, perform the following steps:
    1. SSH to the Cloudera Manager host.
    2. Run the following command to install AutoSSH using the ccm-autossh-client rpm file:
      yum --nogpgcheck localinstall [***downloaded ccm_autossh-client-rpm***]

      If the installation of CCM autossh-client rpm fails with “No package autossh available”, refer to Troubleshooting: Install autossh package.

    3. Extract the ssh_tunnel_setup_files.zip or cluster_connectivity_setup_files.zip file to a directory.
    4. Run the install script in the directory using the ./install.sh command.
    5. Optionally, you can check the CCM service status using ccm-tunnel status command to verify whether the SSH tunnel is established.
  10. On the Classic Clusters page, click Test Connection in the Step 2 pane to verify whether the tunnel connection is successful.
  11. Click Register in the Step 3 pane.
  12. In the Cluster Details dialog box, enter the Cloudera Manager credentials that has Admin access to Cloudera Manager and the cluster services.
