Installing Search with Cloudera Manager

As of Cloudera Manager 4.6, Cloudera Search (the Solr server) can be installed along with other CDH components using the Cloudera Manager. You can install the software using one of the two following methods. Once the Cloudera Search software has been installed, you must add it as a service; unlike many of the other services, this is not done automatically. See Adding Cloudera Search in Managing Clusters with Cloudera Manager for detailed instructions on adding and configuring Cloudera Search.
