[ Edited ]

Hi Community,


I ran the wizard but was not able to start the db.


In the log i see : Failed to get D-Bus connection: Operation not permitted


tand able to replicate the issue by:


[root@localhost ~]# systemctl start cloudera-scm-server-db
Failed to get D-Bus connection: Operation not permitted


My Centos is : 

[root@localhost ~]# cat /etc/redhat-release
CentOS Linux release 7.2.1511 (Core)

Hi Fawze,


I assume when you say wizard, you are running the cloudera-manager-installer.bin .  


You cannot use any other DB with the cloudera-manager-installer.bin, but here are directions on how to manually install  Cloudera Manager with an external database that you need to setup yourself.


I don't know what the failed message means, I have run the cloudera-manager-installer.bin on CentOS 7.3   4 and 5 without that issue.


Good luck,
