Hi Ra,


I should note that it's "Director", not "Dictator", although I do like your name because it sounds really assertive. ;)


Altus Director generates a log with much more detailed information about what is happening, and that's the first spot you'd want to look. Since you're using "bootstrap-remote", you want to look at the server log, which is usually at /var/log/cloudera-director-server/application.log.


It seems that the single GCE instance for Cloudera Manager came up successfully, but something went wrong with the instances for the cluster. The server log should reveal more.


If you have a support contract with us, it's a good idea to open a case and include the entirety of the server log with it. Our support team can take a look and possibly help get you moving.
