We want to run the Cloudera quick start docker image but we are facing serious issues.
First, we tried to pull it from docker hub but found that the official Cloudera quickstart image is CDH 5.6 and was last pushed about two years ago. We need CDH 5.12 so this is too old for us.
Then we tried to download it from Cloudera web site. It was a 4.7GB tar.gz file, but docker could'nt run it. We looked into the file and found that the files and directory layout wasn't what we expected.
We expected to see layers and json files but we found a tar'ed linux machine.
Did anyone succeeded running the latest quickstart docker container ? Is the quickstart image maintained ? Does it work ?
I encountered the same issues. What I found was:
Don't know why Cloudera doesn't seem to give a crap about the docker images for anything above CDH 5.7, but it is inexcusable that the documentation is completely wrong and Cloudera doesn't seem to care about it.
