@Joseph Sorry for the delay in response here.  Overlaying Cloudera Manager over an existing CDH cluster is a tricky operation and requires care, but can be done.  Our own Eric Sammer posted this thread on Quora a while back detailing the overall steps.  If you have follow up questions after reading that, we're happy to assist.

Thanks for getting back to me. It worked. The task is much simpler if you
can shut down the cluster before installing/configuring.


The Cloudera Manager is really pretty cool. It was worth the temporary
stress.
