Installing an Embedded PostgreSQL Database

You can complete a manual installation that uses an embedded PostgreSQL server. If you are using Installation Path A - Automated Installation by Cloudera Manager, an embedded PostgreSQL database is automatically installed, so you do not need to complete this procedure. If, however, you are using Installation Path B - Installation Using Your Own Method, and you want to use an embedded PostgreSQL database, use this procedure.

The embedded PostgreSQL database must be installed on the Cloudera Manager server host.

Installing the embedded PostgreSQL database package on the Cloudera Manager Server host:

  1. Install the PostgreSQL database:
    • On a Red Hat system if you have a yum repo configured:
      $ sudo yum install cloudera-manager-server-db
    • On a Red Hat system if you're transferring RPMs manually:
      $ sudo yum --nogpgcheck localinstall cloudera-manager-server-db.noarch.rpm
    • On a SUSE system:
      $ sudo zypper install cloudera-manager-server-db
    • On a Debian/Ubuntu system:
      $ sudo apt-get install cloudera-manager-server-db
  2. Start the PostgreSQL database:
    $ sudo service cloudera-scm-server-db start
