My Loptop has only 8GB RAM in total. OS is Windows 10. QuickStart VM requires 8 GB RAM. I want to work with QuickStart VM for learning / evaluation purpose. Is it possible to install previous versions CDH 5.2 or 5.3 (QuickStart VM) or make this version work in 5 GB RAM. I would prefer if I can get access to a preconfigured QuickStart VM rather then going through the pain of installing linux / ubantu and configuring them. Please Help.

Welcome to the community @HPathak. I have good news and bad news. The good news is that the quickstart VM only requires 4GB+ of RAM allocated to the VM if you are chosing the CDH5 option. The bad news is that if you want to use Cloudera Manager (Cloudera Express option and above) you will need to allocate 8GB+ or RAM to the VM.
This requirement goes back as far as I can recall so if there is an older version requiring less RAM I don't think it would be suitable to your evaluation.
I hope this helps.

To be honest, I do not know the answer off the top of my head. Can you provide links to the documentation you are looking at so I can check into it. I may be able to get some input from @srowen as well.

My laptop is having 12 GB RAM, I am trying to run CDH 5.8.0 using VM Player (version 6.0.X) , But it does not start and no error also comes up. When I am clicking start VM, it try to start it and stops after 2 3 seconds. No error message no trace.
Can you please help. As per Cludera CDH information available on page, 4 GB is enough but even though after allocating 8 GB, VM not starting.

In your case @hsingh82ggn you could be running into a different problem than RAM. Give our community article on setting up a QuickStart VM a read. My best guess off the top of my head would be a corrupted download which can happen with such a large file and why we recommend using a download manager. Another tip is to be sure to follow step number 4 in the article when creating the VM as it provisions the machine for you and you can then adjust the RAM after if needed afterward.

I am facing the same problem. I want to explore hadoop services such as flume, hive etc for learning purpose. I read this thread, but I couldn't come to any conclusion. Can anyone please tell me the direct solution?
