QuickStart VM Products and Services

The Cloudera QuickStart VM includes: These products and services are installed, configured, and ready to use.


  Note: The hadoop-hdfs-zkfc and hadoop-hdfs-journalnode components will not start in the QuickStart VM because they are HDFS High Availability components which are not designed to run on single node QuickStart VM. The failure to start these two components is harmless.

Cloudera Manager

As part of the boot process, the VM automatically launches Cloudera Manager and configures HDFS, Hive, Hue, MapReduce, Oozie, ZooKeeper, Flume, HBase, Cloudera Impala, Cloudera Search, and YARN. Only the ZooKeeper, HDFS, MapReduce1, Hive, and Hue services are started automatically. Flume, HBase, Oozie, Sqoop, Impala, Solr, and YARN services are not started because they are not used in all cases and not starting them conserves RAM.

You can start or reconfigure any installed services using the web interface that is automatically displayed when the VM starts. Standard CDH4 command-line tools are available for use, as well.
