Cloudera Manager 5.2.1 install seems broken

New Contributor

Hi,

 

I'm trying to install 5.2.1 but something seems broken.

 

If I try path A, I get an error during the jdk install phase. Looking at the logs, in the refresh-repos log, I see the following:

W: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

 

 

So you can see the installer is pointing at the 5.3.0-nightly build, in some jenkens repository that I don't have access to. I thought it was supposed to be pointed at a repository called archive.

 

So then I follow the B path. I'm able to get the jdk installed, but the download of the server goes really slow. I did manage to get it to finish and get the web UI up, but it seems to have installed 5.3.0, because in the web UI that is the version of the parcels. I had some trouble installing parcels in 5.3.0, so I threw that out and am starting over, I'd really like to install 5.2.1 which was working fine for me last week.

 

Thanks,

Mike

Re: Cloudera Manager 5.2.1 install seems broken

Thank you for the report. I have reproduced the issue and logged a bug report internally. Meanwhile you have two workarounds
1. Use the Path B installer like you already have
2. Download the .bin installer from CM5.2.1 specifically from http://archive.cloudera.com/cm5/installer/5.2.1/cloudera-manager-installer.bin

The .bin installer is released with each version of Cloudera Manager but regardless it always installs the latest version. So even if you download the .bin from the 5.2.1 URL, it will install v5.3.0 (released just a few hours back). This is by design.

Re: Cloudera Manager 5.2.1 install seems broken

Just to confirm, did you downloaded the .bin installer from
archive.cloudera.com?

Repos.jenkins is an internal host, not sure how you got that repo.

Is this a new OS install? Please list the contents of your
/etc/apt/sources.list and the relevant logs in
/var/log/cloudera-manager-installer.

So I am able to complete installation using method B (although the download takes a long time). Here's what I see in the web ui, you can see 5.3.0 installed.

Re: Cloudera Manager 5.2.1 install seems broken

The slow download is a known issue. We use Amazon CloudFront as the CDN.
The caches get populated only on first download and there are multiple ones
around the world. So depending on which CF endpoint you reach, based on
your geographical location, it might be slow or fast. If you attempted the
installation again now, the downloads will be much quicker.

Thanks for the apt listing, I'll try the installer in a few hours
