I'm trying to log into to Cloudera Manager in cloudera-quickstart-vm-5.8.0-0-vmware with the specified log in details ( Username: cloudera, Password: cloudera) but getting the error: Incorrect username or password.
I looked at the documentation for the quickstart VMs, and it states the username and password for CM in quickstart are "cloudera", as you said.
Intrigued, I decided to fire up the VM on my end, and sure enough, those credentials don't work. I instead tried using the default CM login specified in the instructions for a standard path B install, and viola, it worked!
try using the following login for CM in quickstart:
Let me know if that works, and in the mean-time, I'll look into getting that documentation updated. Thank you for bringing this to my attention. 🙂
Glad that login worked. As far as the services go, they should indeed already be installed. My thought is it could be an issue with the particular VM you received. Either it was received from a different source, or it didn't download completely. Could you perhaps provide the link you originally got the VM from?
Here’s what I recommend. Try re-downloading* the VM, verify it completely downloaded, and try loading it, still using the "admin" user and pass login. I downloaded the quickstart VM from the link below*, and I've verified that it works. (all services installed)
Okay, from this point, it would seem that the script could be having trouble setting up and starting the services. Could you try re-running the script with the method you described (sudo /home/cloudera/cloudera-manager --express --force) and post the output from it? We'll comb through it for any possible errors. Meanwhile, I'm working on my end to replicate this.
[cloudera@quickstart ~]$ sudo /home/cloudera/cloudera-manager --express --force

Success! You can now log into Cloudera Manager from the QuickStart VM's browser:
I'm still researching the issue, but in the meantime, I can definitely help you with the cluster setup. The selections on that first screen look fine. Feel free to post screen shots of anything else you have questions for.
Interesting. It seems like your VM already had the packages installed for the services, even though Cloudera Manager didn't recognize them.
First, try running the "Migrate to Parcels" script on the desktop. That should stop the services, uninstall them, and re-deploy the client configuration. Just ran the script myself, and the output should Idealy look like this.
Feel free to share a screenshot of your console output for this
If that doesn't work, try reinstalling CM with packages instead of parcels. To do this, I would recommend deleting the current VM and re-extracting the zip you download, just so you can start fresh.
Let me know if it throws any warnings this time around or if you have any questions along the way. (screenshots are welcome, as always) Thank you for being so patient while we figure this out.
Also, here's some fun reading to get a better understanding of Parcels, if you're so inclined. 🙂
