absolute beginner... where to start?

I would like to go through the Cloudera tutorial so I tried to download the "Virtual Box" (for Windows) Virtual machine but I only got a .ovf and a .vmdk file.

 

A machine definition in Virtual Box seems to be a .vbox extension file...

 

Am I missing a step?

 

 

Thank You

Hi @EricLeBouffon,

 

Thank you for trying out the Quickstart VM. I suggest taking a look at our community article How to setup Cloudera Quickstart Virtual Machine which should get you through the install process. 

 

Best of luck and let me know how it goes. :)

Re: absolute beginner... where to start?

Did you choose virtual box from the drop down menu before hitting the download button in the webpage . 

 

Make sure to go to the BIOS setting and enable virtualization before you kick off virtualbox or vmware . 

Once you getting in to the enviroment  you can use express or enterprise 

 

Requirments 

 

To use Cloudera Express (free), run:

sudo /home/cloudera/cloudera-manager --express

 

This requires at least 8 GB of RAM and at least 2 virtual CPUs.

 

To begin a 60-day trial of Cloudera Enterprise with advanced management
features, run:

 

sudo /home/cloudera/cloudera-manager --enterprise

 

This requires at least 10 GB or RAM and at least 2 virtual CPUs.

Re: absolute beginner... where to start?

I had actually been given a copy of the Virtual Machine... or so I thought...

 

Downloading it myself works a lot better!

 

Thank You
