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.

SSH to a Data Lake node as cloudbreakuser

Required role: No CDP role is required

CDP administrators can access Data Lake 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@90.101.0.132

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.

SSH to a Data Lake node as your own CDP user

Required role: EnvironmentUser, Data Steward, or EnvironmentAdmin

A user who have the required CDP role assigned to them can SSH to Data Lake cluster nodes as themselves.

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

ssh -i "privatekey.pem" cdpusername@publicIP

For example:

ssh -i "testkey-kp.pem" jsmith@90.101.0.132

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.
