Step 3: Install Cloudera Manager Server

Step 1: Configure a Repository Step 2: Install Java Step 3: Install Cloudera Manager Server Step 4: Install Databases Step 5: Set Up the Cloudera Manager Database Step 6: Install CDH and Other Software Step 7: Set Up a Cluster

In this step you install the JDK and Cloudera Manager Server packages on the Cloudera Manager host.

Install the Cloudera Manager Server Packages

  1. Install the Cloudera Manager Server packages either on the host where the database is installed, or on a host that has access to the database. This host need not be a host in the cluster that you want to manage with Cloudera Manager. On the Cloudera Manager Server host, type the following commands to install the Cloudera Manager packages.
    OS Command
    RHEL, if you have a yum repo configured
    sudo yum install cloudera-manager-daemons cloudera-manager-server
    RHEL,if you're manually transferring RPMs
    sudo yum --nogpgcheck localinstall cloudera-manager-daemons-*.rpm
    sudo yum --nogpgcheck localinstall cloudera-manager-server-*.rpm
    sudo zypper install cloudera-manager-daemons cloudera-manager-server
    Ubuntu or Debian
    sudo apt-get install cloudera-manager-daemons cloudera-manager-server
  2. If you are using an Oracle database for Cloudera Manager, increase the Java heap size for Cloudera Manager Server. Edit the /etc/default/cloudera-scm-server file on the Cloudera Manager server host. Locate the line that begins with export CM_JAVA_OPTS and change the -Xmx2G option to -Xmx4G.

Install and Configure Databases

After installing the Cloudera Manager Server packages, continue to Step 4: Install and Configure Databases.
