cloudera director c5d instance type support

Hi,

 I am not able to use AWS instance type c5d for cluster template. Is it related to the cloudera director version? How can I include the template to this instance type?

Thanks

Re: cloudera director c5d instance type support

These new instance types aren't in Director yet. For now however, you should be able to update Director's AWS plugin to include them. You can refer to the documentation for the steps: https://www.cloudera.com/documentation/director/latest/topics/director_aws_new_instance_types.html

Re: cloudera director c5d instance type support

I did configure the c5d instance types, but it is still failing:

Re: cloudera director c5d instance type support

Hmm, so etc/ec2.virtualizationmappings.properties is the default location to specify the virtualization mapping. You can use etc/ec2.customvirtualizationmappings.properties as shown in your example but then you would have to specify this custom location in etc/aws-plugin.conf (as mentioned in the docs). Can you double check to see if that's the issue.

Re: cloudera director c5d instance type support

I resolved the issue, the problem was:

- the listing of hvm instance types has to be in one row separated by comma (I dont know why the escape on new lines did not worked)

 

Here is the working configuration:

 

cat << EOF | sudo tee -a /var/lib/cloudera-director-plugins/aws-provider-1.5.0/etc/aws-plugin.confx
virtualizationMappings {
    customMappingsPath: ec2.customvirtualizationmappings.properties
}
EOF

cat << EOF | sudo tee /var/lib/cloudera-director-plugins/aws-provider-1.5.0/etc/ec2.customvirtualizationmappings.propertiesx
hvm=c5.large,c5.xlarge,c5.2xlarge,c5.4xlarge,c5.9xlarge,c5.18xlarge, m5.large,m5.xlarge,m5.2xlarge,m5.4xlarge,m5.12xlarge,m5.24xlarge,c5d.large,c5d.xlarge,c5d.2xlarge,c5d.4xlarge,c5d.9xlarge,c5d.18xlarge,r5.large,r5.xlarge,r5.2xlarge,r5.4xlarge,r5.12xlarge,r5.24xlarge
EOF

cat << EOF | sudo tee -a /var/lib/cloudera-director-plugins/aws-provider-1.5.0/etc/aws-plugin.confx
ephemeralDeviceMappings {
    customMappingsPath: ec2.customephemeraldevicemappings.properties
}
EOF

cat << EOF | sudo tee /var/lib/cloudera-director-plugins/aws-provider-1.5.0/etc/ec2.customephemeraldevicemappings.propertiesx
c5d.large=1
c5d.xlarge=1
c5d.2xlarge=1
c5d.4xlarge=1
c5d.9xlarge=1
c5d.18xlarge=2
EOF

Re: cloudera director c5d instance type support

Glad you got it working.

 

Just to note something like this did work for me for hvm instance types:

 

hvm=c5.large,\
c5.xlarge,\
c5.2xlarge,\
c5d.2xlarge

 

There should be a ec2.virtualizationmappings.properties.example file you can look at, modify as an example.
