Deploy Cloudera manager using conf files and CLI

Hello,

 

Is there a way to deploy Cloudera manager instance (AWS) ONLY , using the CLI and configuration file?

 

I like to use it for future cluster deployments and so I can terminate clusters without terminating the CM instance.

 

Thanks,

David

David,

 

Director does not currently have a way to create only a Deployment (CM) using the conf file. Conf files must specify a Cluster.

 

You can set the "environmentName" and "deploymentName" fields in subsequent conf files to re-use the same CM with future Clusters using the "bootstrap-remote" command.

 

Cluster termination can be performed in the UI or API, while leaving the Deployment around. Also, if you have multiple Clusters under the same Deployment, using the terminate-remote command in the CLI to terminate a Cluster will NOT terminate the Deployment (as of Director 2.3).

Thank you, but I've tried that and I still see that cloudera manager instanes get created:

1. I initially run: cloudera-director bootstrap ha.cluster.conf

    Which completed successfully

2. I deleted the cluster and all hosts

3. I run that command while cloudera-manager instance is of course up and running:

    cloudera-director bootstrap-remote --lp.remote.username=admin --lp.remote.password=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx ha.cluster.conf

 

What am I missing?

ha.cluster.conf did not changed between invocations.

 

Thanks,

David

Re: Deploy Cloudera manager using conf files and CLI

David,

 

The "bootstrap" and "bootstrap-remote" commands are completely different. The "bootstrap" command will create a deployment and cluster without a Director server, storing the models in a local database file. There is no way to re-use these models across multiple "bootstrap" commands. "bootstrap-remote" submits the deployment and cluster to a Director server and the models will be stored in the Director server database.

 

See Cloudera Director Interfaces for more information about the distinction between the CLI and the Stand-alone Client.

 

You can modify your workflow in the following manner:

 

Please use the bootstrap-remote command in your step 1.

 

In step 2, you can terminate the cluster in the Director UI. This will leave CM running.

 

The existing CM will be re-used if you re-run bootstrap-remote with the same conf file or a different conf file that specifies the same "environmentName" and "deploymentName".
