Good day to you.
I'm also preparing for the exam.
Read somewhere that it will have a cluster of 4 nodes of CentOS
Any idea - which version of CDH will be used?
The Express / Enterprise (Data Hub) or the full Enterprise.
Does it also include Cloudera Navigator ?
Is there a precise documentation to refer for this exam?
Sorry for the (many) questions...
new exam .... dont have much information on it.
Previously it was like multiple choice questions and answers ,pretty straight forward.
Now it is more of like Red Hat linux certification , they will you problem to slove in the cluster and you should solve the issue using Couldera manager or command line in hadoop, if i remember correctly sometimes they will also check your linux knoweldge by asking something related to disk space , process state , premission etc
I belive this is an effort taken by cloudera to avoid dumps preparation which is illegal .
You can choose any operating of your choice . but widely in production in general people use RHEL .
this tutorial will explain you like step by step .they are configuring 2 slave nodes once you configured two nodes without any hazzel you should be able to configure rest of the slave nodes
Hope this is suffice . mate
Well after 60 days trial you will pushed to Express edition . Certain features will be disabled like HA , rollback certain configuration things like that ,but that shouldnt be a show stopper for your exam preparation.
Good luck with it . Concencrate more on the hadoop configuration files all the xml
