clouderadirector bootstrapping/clustersetup surety is not there

I have done 25 attempts in last 2-3 days to do cluster setup using cloudera director 2.0 using UI and also using director client. I was successful only one time using UI. 

 

It simply fail bootstraping on machine.

 

Please advice if it is wise to do installation on aws using cloudera director.

Hi Karthik,

I'm the Engineering Manager for Cloudera Director, and I'm sorry to see
that you've been having difficulty in getting Director to work for your
usecase. Regarding your specific concerns, we have customers and community
users who have been successful in getting Cloudera Director to deploy
clusters in AWS. Some ramp up by following Cloudera Director documentation
, and others
have used the AWS Quick Start for Cloudera Enterprise

to start off their experience with Cloudera Director. In addition, if you
would like to work with Cloudera Support, I can put you in touch with our
sales department. Hope these resources are helpful to you.

Sincerely,
Vinithra

Sorry it was issue in aws account. Found there was upper limit on number of ec2 machines.

 

 

Best practice using director client  and fast debugging :

 

1) open one window with below command

 

    tail -f ~/.cloudera-director/logs/application.log

 

2) open another window and run.

 

   cloudera-director bootstrap aws.reference.conf

 

 

This way we can find the error and fix quikly.
