Step 1: Download and Run the Cloudera Manager Server Installer

Download the Cloudera Manager installer to the cluster host to which you are installing the Cloudera Manager Server. By default, the automated installer binary (cloudera-manager-installer.bin) installs the highest version of Cloudera Manager.

  1. Download the Cloudera Manager Installer
    1. Open Cloudera Manager Downloads in a web browser. In the Cloudera Manager box, click Download Now.
    2. You can download either the most recent version of the installer or select an earlier version from the drop-down. Click GET IT NOW!.
    3. Either sign in or complete the product interest form and click Continue.
    4. Read and accept the Cloudera Standard License agreement and click Submit.
    5. Download the installer for your Cloudera Manager version. For example, for Cloudera Manager 6.0.0:
      wget https://archive.cloudera.com/cm6/6.0.0/cloudera-manager-installer.bin
  2. Run the Cloudera Manager Installer
    1. Change cloudera-manager-installer.bin to have execute permissions:
      chmod u+x cloudera-manager-installer.bin
    2. Run the Cloudera Manager Server installer:
      sudo ./cloudera-manager-installer.bin
      For clusters without Internet access: Install Cloudera Manager packages from a local repository:
      sudo ./cloudera-manager-installer.bin --skip_repo_package=1
  3. Read and Accept the Associated License Agreements
    1. Read the Cloudera Manager README and then select Next to proceed.
    2. Read the Cloudera Express License and then select Next to proceed. Use the arrow keys to highlight Yes and then press Enter to accept the license.
    3. Read the Oracle Binary Code License Agreement and then select Next to proceed. Use the arrow keys to highlight Yes and then press Enter to accept the license.
      The installer then:
      1. Installs the Cloudera Manager repository files.
      2. Installs the Oracle JDK.
      3. Installs the Cloudera Manager Server and embedded PostgreSQL packages.
      4. Starts the embedded PostgreSQL database and Cloudera Manager Server.
  4. Exit the Installer
    1. When the installation completes, the complete URL for the Cloudera Manager Admin Console displays, including the port number (7180 by default). Make a note of this URL.
    2. Press Enter to choose OK to exit the installer, and then again to acknowledge the successful installation.
    3. Wait several minutes for the Cloudera Manager Server to start. To observe the startup process, run sudo tail -f /var/log/cloudera-scm-server/cloudera-scm-server.log on the Cloudera Manager Server host. When you see the following log entry, the Cloudera Manager Admin Console is ready:
      INFO WebServerImpl:com.cloudera.server.cmf.WebServerImpl: Started Jetty server.

      If the Cloudera Manager Server does not start, see Troubleshooting Installation Problems.
