Where to download cod 5.7.x quick start VM?

[ Edited ]

I need CDH 5.7.x instead 5.8, but I can't find any links to previous images.

Howdy,

 

The quickstart VM is for educational, testing, and proof of concept purposes mostly. Therefore, our download page always offers the latest version of CDH for the quickstart VM.


Is there a particular reason you need to use CDH 5.7?

I have a cluster on 5.7.0. With quickstart VM I can quickly validate my changes and debug issues.

Okay. Let me put some info together for you on the best way to setup a testing cluster. Two questions on you main cluster in the meantime:

 

1. What version of linux are you currently running? (centos, ubuntu, etc)

2. What kind of Database setup do you use? (mysql, postgresql, maria, etc)

1. Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 6.5 (Santiago)

2. Postgres for CM, mysql for the rest.

Thank you for providing that info and being so patient with the response.

 

For a testing/dev cluster to mirror a production cluster, The common practice is to make another cluster(with less nodes) Using a path B install.* This is what I would recommend. You’ll want to make a tweak along the way to install your desired version though.

 

Establishing your Repo Strategy:

 

When you get to this part of the install instructions, you’ll be instructed to make a repo file for your CM version. When you click the link for Cent OS6, you’ll be presented with this. I’ve bolded the line you’re going to change.

 

[cloudera-manager]
# Packages for Cloudera Manager, Version 5, on RedHat or CentOS 6 x86_64             
name=Cloudera Manager

baseurl=https://archive.cloudera.com/cm5/redhat/6/x86_64/cm/5/ (remove this)
gpgkey =https://archive.cloudera.com/cm5/redhat/6/x86_64/cm/RPM-GPG-KEY-cloudera    
gpgcheck = 1

 

After you make the change, it should look like this

 

 

[cloudera-manager]
# Packages for Cloudera Manager, Version 5, on RedHat or CentOS 6 x86_64             
name=Cloudera Manager
baseurl=https://archive.cloudera.com/cm5/redhat/6/x86_64/cm/5.7.0/ (add this)
gpgkey =https://archive.cloudera.com/cm5/redhat/6/x86_64/cm/RPM-GPG-KEY-cloudera    
gpgcheck = 1

 

This will direct yum to your desired version of Cloudera Manager, which in turn will provide you with the proper options for installing your desired version of CDH during setup.

 

You can use this method for any version you desire. Simple follow the link in baseurl, navigate to the root directory of the version you want in the archive, and copy that url to the baseurl field. This method has been tested by yours truly. ;)

 

Other than that, just follow the instructions for the path B install, and you’ll be good to go.

 

Let me know if this helps, or if you have any questions.

Cheers
