Deploying Centos 7 on GCE

Deploying Centos 7 on GCE

Explorer

Hi, 

 

I'm trying to deploy a CDH 5 cluster on GCE using Cloudera Director. 

In the section where I have the option to choose OS type, I have only RHL6/Centos6.

Is there any way to use Centos7 instead ?

 

Many Thanks

Hi RanCohen,

 

Since CentOS 7 has no predefined alias in Director, you need to enter the URL for the image you want to use. I found that this one is accepted:

 

https://www.googleapis.com/compute/v1/projects/centos-cloud/global/images/centos-7-v20160511

 

In the dialog for defining an instance template, try entering that URL in the editable input field for the image alias or URL, rather than picking from the associated dropdown menu. It can be typed or pasted in.
