This is the documentation for CDH 4.7.1. Documentation for other versions is available at Cloudera Documentation.

Cloudera Manager 4 and CDH 4 have reached End of Maintenance (EOM) on August 9, 2015. Cloudera will not support or provide patches for any of the Cloudera Manager 4 or CDH 4 releases after that date.

Installing Oozie

Oozie is distributed as two separate packages; a client package (oozie-client) and a server package (oozie). Depending on what you are planning to install, choose the appropriate packages and install them using your preferred package manager application.

  Note:

The Oozie server package, oozie, is preconfigured to work with MRv1. To configure the Oozie server to work with Hadoop MapReduce YARN, see Configuring the Hadoop Version to Use.

  Important:

If you have not already done so, install Cloudera's Yum, zypper/YaST or Apt repository before using the following commands to install Oozie. For instructions, see CDH4 Installation.

To install the Oozie server package on an Ubuntu and other Debian system:

$ sudo apt-get install oozie

To install the Oozie client package on an Ubuntu and other Debian system:

$ sudo apt-get install oozie-client

To install the Oozie server package on a Red Hat-compatible system:

$ sudo yum install oozie

To install the Oozie client package on a Red Hat-compatible system:

$ sudo yum install oozie-client

To install the Oozie server package on a SLES system:

$ sudo zypper install oozie

To install the Oozie client package on a SLES system:

$ sudo zypper install oozie-client
  Note:

Installing the oozie package creates an oozie service configured to start Oozie at system startup time.

You are now ready to configure Oozie. See the next section.
