Accessing a Data Lake cluster via SSH

If you plan to access a Data Lake (for example for troubleshooting purposes) via a command line client, SSH into the master node.

CDP administrators can access cluster nodes as cloudbreak user with the SSH key provided during cluster creation.

On Mac OS, you can use the following syntax to SSH to the VM::

ssh -i "privatekey.pem" cloudbreak@publicIP

For example:

ssh -i "testkey-kp.pem" cloudbreak@

On Windows, you can access your cluster via SSH by using an SSH client such as PuTTY. For more information, refer to How to use PuTTY on Windows.
