Installing Apache Ranger using Ambari Infra (SolrCloud) for Ranger Audit

1) Find the location of mysql-connector-java.jar (assume /usr/share/java/mysql-connector-java.jar) run the following command on the Ambari server

sudo ambari-server setup --jdbc-db=mysql --jdbc-driver=/usr/share/java/mysql-connector-java.jar 

2) In Ambari, click Add Service

5) Assign master(s) for "Ranger Usersync" and "Ranger Admin" and click Next

6) Assign Slaves and Clients - since we did not install Apache Atlas, Ranger TagSync is not required and click Next

7) Customize Services -> Ranger Audit, click on "OFF" to enable SolrCloud

Customize Services -> Ranger Admin, enter "Ranger DB host" the DB you chose (in my case, I chose MySQL) and a password "Ranger DB password" for the user rangeradmin *Ranger will automatically add the user "rangeradmin"

Add the proper credentials for a DB user that has administrator credentials (this administrator will create the user rangeradmin and Ranger tables)

MySQL create an administrator user *Note: rcicak2.field.hortonworks.com is the server where Ranger is being installed

CREATE USER 'ryan'@'rcicak2.field.hortonworks.com' IDENTIFIED BY 'lebronjamesisawesome';

GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON *.* TO 'ryan'@'rcicak2.field.hortonworks.com' WITH GRANT OPTION;
