The purpose of this article is to assist you in starting up your Cloudera Quickstart Virtual Machine once you have downloaded it.
Quickstart VM 5.5
IMPORTANT: As recommended on the download page, we HIGHLY recommend that you install a “Download Manager” extension to your web browser and utilize that to manage the download of the Quickstart VM as it is a VERY large file and can easily get corrupted during download due to connectivity issues. A download manager add-on will assist you in getting a clean download and save you time and spare the frustration.

Information on Accounts:

Hue and Cloudera Manager use the same credentials.
Some users have reported problems running CentOS 6.4 in VirtualBox. If a kernel panic occurs while the VirtualBox VM is booting, you can try working around this problem by opening the Settings > System > Motherboard tab, and selecting ICH9 instead of PIIX3 for the chip set. If you have not already done so, you must also enable I/O APIC on the same tab.
