Cloudera manager embedded database fails to come up

Expert Contributor


# The database type
# Currently 'mysql', 'postgresql' and 'oracle' are valid databases.
com.cloudera.cmf.db.type=mysql

 

How can that be changed to postgres. I tried so many things and now out of options. 

 

I am doing a POC and at first started the regular installation bu installing agent,server.daemons and bringing up CM server without a DB and then unstalled all retried using the cloudera-manager-installer.bin . After a day of searching i cannot get the installtion to complete.

 

The embedded database does not install with the below error 

 



$$$$sudo cat /var/log/cloudera-manager-installer/7.start-cloudera-scm-server-db.log

Job for cloudera-scm-server-db.service failed because the control process exited with error code. See "systemctl status cloudera-scm-server-db.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details.

## Tried systemctl daemon-reload many times still no luck and then reran installer

$ sudo tail -100 /var/log/cloudera-scm-server/db.log
FATAL: could not create lock file "/var/run/postgresql/.s.PGSQL.7432.lock": No such file or directory

 

$ sudo mkdir /var/run/postgresql
$ sudo chown -R postgres:postgres /var/run/postgresql

 

Once i did this it fixed the problem.

Re: Cloudera manager embedded database fails to come up

Master Guru
Try deleting away /etc/default/cloudera-*, /etc/cloudera-*,
/var/lib/cloudera-* entirely, and erase all cloudera-* packages via yum (on
all involved hosts). After this, attempt the installer again. This will
allow the default embedded configs to be written and used for DB
initialization, vs. preserving whatever has been left over.
