It all thing I did before setup. Now I will tried to setup with the cloudera guideline, and go to link


1. At page Parcel, => No Parcels found. I must choise a pack


Versions of CDH that are too new for this version of Cloudera Manager (5.10.0) will not be shown.

Note: No parcels found from the configured repositories. Try adding a Custom Repository under More Options. Otherwise, you may only proceed with Use Packages.


2. At step 5


Cluster Installation

Detecting CDH versions on all hosts

No CDH version detected. Check Again


 Ensure that all hosts have the same CDH version and then click Check Again to proceed.


No CDH version detected. Check AgainEnsure that all hosts have the same CDH version and then click Check Again to proceed.

This link has the parcels present in it.

You can enter this link in the parcel location, distribute your parcels and then you will be able to go further.


It's defaut link. and it always appears.


I think problem is proxy, after setup proxy, we must wait?


After parcel downloaded. It did not run any more ?

After it is downloaded, you will need to distribute it and unpack it too.



What if the screen freezes and no progress though the Download shows 100% but distribute 0/4 , Unpack 0/4 and Activate 0/4?

i tried it atleast 15-20 time from stratch and then found its an openjdk issue that was root cause of this issue remove


1. yum remove javaopen*


2. Stop the server and the agent and install the correct version JDK1.8_31 


for your convinience find the link below


4. Start the server and the agent .


feel free to contact me for any further support on this freeze distribution issue CDH 5.10





At this moment, I have skipped the Cloudera Manager JDK installation since I have downloaded and installed JDK 1.8 on all the hosts and set the $JAVA_HOME as well. But still java -version points to open JDK. 


[root@namenode1 ~]# rpm -aq | grep -i jdk

[root@namenode1 ~]# java -version
openjdk version "1.8.0_121"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_121-b13)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.121-b13, mixed mode)

[root@namenode1 ~]# echo $JAVA_HOME
[root@namenode1 ~]#


Let me try to remove openJDk

u have installed open jdk again it is supporting orcale jdk in my case find the installation instructions below .


remove open jdk by


$ yum remove java-o*



$ yum remove javao*

Cloudera Employee

This will be fixed in the next maintenance release 5.10.1, 5.9.2.

any idea when this release will be offically available




Is this issue resolved ? were you able to bypass that "no cdh version detected" issue ?


I am facing this issue and have tried reinstall multiple times. But it gets stuck at same point every time

Yes open jdk is conflicting with it . just remove them


Thanks alot @adminzeeshan, yes it was due to open JDK. 


Issue is resolved and installation is successful.
