I have installed flume and I am now dep0loying cloudera search. I have been following these instructions


and I am stuck in setting the /solr dir in HDFS as I cannot do it. Any help to create the dir? Also when testing the solr server on localhost does not work

Hi @angel13,


If you are using Cloudera Manager(CM) to deploy Search in your cluster, all the required directories in HDFS will be created by CM itself. Or if you are using only CDH without CM, then you need to have permissions to create a directory in HDFS. 


I notice that are using CDH5.3.x. If so, please refer to the documentation of CDH5.3.x line. (
