Are the errors regarding kafka-server have something to do with that the cluster isn't installed?
What can I do to fix this?
On the desktop of VM I have also the following items:
Migrate to Parcels
Should I use one of them?
You should'nt have to use the Kerberos or Parcels links.
I'm currectly working on some additional troubleshooting steps. Thank you for your patience.
I'm trying to install the cluster by myself.
Could you help me with the configurations?
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.
So, after the Cluster Installation, I got this screen:
What does the warning about the Parcels mean?
Should I change the configuration of the cluster installation to "Use Packages" instead of "Use Parcels"?
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. :)
I deleted the VM (again),
re-extracted the zip (again),
in the terminal in the VM I run the script - sudo /home/cloudera/cloudera-manager --express --force (again),
and this time I could log into Cloudera Manager with the credentials 'cloudera' and the cluster was already installed!
