Cloudera manager/agent installation without root user



I have setup hadoop cluster on my DeV/UAT/PROD env using the tar balls manually with fid. now its getting difficult to maintain or add new datanode or new software as cluster size is growing. also we are not allowed to login through fid so frequantly on PROD env.

Cloudera manager/agent requires root user access to install,if  i had this; my work would have been easier.


We have policy that what all softwares can be installed using root access and what not. so cant install cloudera manager/agent using root access by Unix Sa.


Is it possible to install Clouder manager/Agents using fid  or non root,non root group users ? Kindly help.
