CM Installation path A fail, not supported OS

CM Installation path A fail, not supported OS

Contributor

Hi,

I'm trying to install CM using the Path A, in a CentOS 7. But the isntallation fails with this error:

It is strange because it says clearly that supports CentOS 7:

$ hostnamectl
   Static hostname: monsterkudu.novalocal
         Icon name: computer-vm
           Chassis: vm
        Machine ID: dae72fe0cc064eb0b7797f25bfaf69df
           Boot ID: a9d1446872ec4ae681b6f4cdccc96f2f
  Operating System: CentOS Linux 7 (Core)
       CPE OS Name: cpe:/o:centos:centos:7
            Kernel: Linux 3.10.0-229.el7.x86_64
      Architecture: x86_64

What could be?

 

Regards,

Joaquín

Try this simplified version of Path B instead: 

http://www.cloudera.com/documentation/enterprise/latest/topics/hue_ins_easy_install.html#concept_hue...

 

# Download Cloudera Manager to your package manager source directory. For CentOS / RHEL 7: 
wget https://archive.cloudera.com/cm5/redhat/7/x86_64/cm/cloudera-manager.repo -P /etc/yum.repos.d/

# Install Oracle JDK (sourced from the Cloudera Manager repo)
sudo yum install -y oracle-j2sdk1.7

# Install Cloudera Manager daemons and server
sudo yum install -y cloudera-manager-daemons cloudera-manager-server

# Install the embedded PostgreSQL database
sudo yum install -y cloudera-manager-server-db-2

# Start the database and server
sudo service cloudera-scm-server-db start
sudo service cloudera-scm-server start

Now point a browser to the host on which you just installed Cloudera Manager server and run the CM Installation Wizard to install the latest version of CDH.

Yeah I did that and worked. But I think this can be a bug.

What was your error?   It did not show in your post. 

 

Are you running Centos 7.3 and trying to install CM5.9.0?

Yes, please provide the error message, the steps that triggered the error, and specific version numbers.

 

By your kernel version, it looks like you may be running CentOS 7.1. For what it's worth, I am able to successfully install CDH 5.9.0 with cloudera-installer.bin on an EC2 cluster running CentOS 7.1.

My CenOS version is 7.3.1611 , and this are the steps:
1- disables SElinux
2- downloaded the installation binary (path A)
3- added execution permission
4- run the binary

The error was "Your distribution is not suported. The installer supports:" and in the list one of them is CentOS 7.

Currently I have CM running, but used the path B.

Re: CM Installation path A fail, not supported OS

The cloudera-manager-installer.bin file would not run because CM/CDH5.9.0 is supported on CentOS 7.2 not 7.3.
