Re: change from embedded to external database unclear

Hi, this is an old post but just got into it.

I don't agree with the explanation for EXTERNAL database.

According to the initial db.properties file (I am copying it from the file

# The db setup type
# By default, it is set to INIT
# If scm-server uses Embedded DB then it is set to EMBEDDED
# If scm-server uses External DB then it is set to EXTERNAL
com.cloudera.cmf.db.setupType=INIT

Although is a good recomendation to have DB on another host, in that case external means other than embedded (cloudera-scm-server-db). And yes, when DB (e.g. MySQL) resides on the same host and "com.cloudera.cmf.db.host=localhost", the scm-prepare script sets "setupType" to external. And it works fine

Re: change from embedded to external database unclear

@GeKas,

 

You are correct.

 

Thank you for clarifying that EXTERNAL means NOT EMBEDDED.

An external database server can be on the same host as Cloudera Manager.
