Cloudera Manager - Install of All Components including Hue on Oracle

Cloudera Manager - Install of All Components including Hue on Oracle

New Contributor

Hi,

I am exploring options to install Cloudera Manager and CDH4. I want to use Oracle as the database for all applicable components of CDH4. 

If I choose a Path A install  (as mentioned in Cloudera Manager install document) can I still use this method (Path A) install and choose my own database for Hue etc.,

The document says that I have to choose a manual method if I have to install Hue with Oracle. 

Please advise.

Thanks,

Raj

Hi Raj,

 
The documentation is correct. If you wish to use anything besides the "embedded database" (which uses Postgres), you need to follow the documented "Path B" installation method.
 
The "Path A" installation method is more geared toward small, test, or non-production clusters where the database type may be less important. Where you have a database type identified, you would use the more custom method which gives you full control of database types used by all components.
 
Regards,
