*To know more about the error , i run the command mentioned in the log file ,and i had this :

Hi Youssef,

 

Well, that error message isn't very helpful.    Let me try this myself.   I assume you are running on Debian 8.9 and trying to install Cloudera Manager 5.14.1.

Re: Installling Cloudera Manager in Debian 8 jessie

Hi,

 

I just did an install on Debian 8.4 and it worked.  My exact commands.

 

wget https://archive.cloudera.com/cm5/installer/latest/cloudera-manager-installer.bin
chmod 777 cloudera-manager-installer.bin
./cloudera-manager-installer.bin

 

Try looking at all the install logs in  /var/log/cloudera-manager-installer/

 

Maybe one of these logs will show you why the PostgreSQL database is not installing correctly or starting.

Re: Installling Cloudera Manager in Debian 8 jessie

@Youssef,

 

(1)

 

Make sure you have selinux disabled.  cloudera-scm-server-db will fail much like you showed if selinux is enforcing.

(run sestatus to check status)

 

(2)

 

Check /var/log/cloudera-scm-server/db.log

It may have more failure info

 

(3)

 

Check /var/lib/cloudera-scm-server-db/data/pg_log

 

It may have files containing information regarding failures of some sort.

Process: 29977 ExecStart=/etc/init.d/cloudera-scm-server-db start (code=exited, status=1/FAILURE)

avril 06 15:05:06 SRVSTGHOST runuser[29987]: pam_unix(runuser:session): session opened for user cloudera-scm by (uid=0)
avril 06 15:05:06 SRVSTGHOST cloudera-scm-server-db[29977]: initdb : nom de locale invalide (« en_US.UTF8 »)

 

The error _may be_ related to the embedded PostgreSQL our script is using, as this is _not_ a common message to see.

 

The script (initialize_embedded_db.sh) attempts to initialise embedded PostgreSQL using the 'initdb' command [3] and the command is failing with the following message "initdb : nom de locale invalide (« en_US.UTF8 »)". 

 

 

- How is your Debian locale configured as [0]? 

- Have you made any locale changes recently [1]?

- Also review the topic "22.1.3. Problems" in [2] using the steps I've provided below.

  

e.g.: testing this command succeeded in my node - see [3] for what each parameter represent

 

sudo -u cloudera-scm echo -n "password" > /tmp/generated_password.txt
sudo -u cloudera-scm initdb --pgdata "/some_tmp/folder/to/test/data" --encoding=UTF8 --locale=en_US.UTF8 --auth=md5 --username="cloudera-scm" --pwfile="/tmp/generated_password.txt"

Re: Installling Cloudera Manager in Debian 8 jessie

Hello,

I finally resolved the problem.
When i run "locale -a" command i had only "fr_Fr.ut8" , but when i added "en_US.utf8" and i set it as default ,i run again the cloudera-manager-installer.bin and it works .

Thank you so much for your help .
