Installation of CDP 7.1.1 trial version is not working (with the auto installation script or manually)

Explorer

Hello

 

I have some cloudera installation experience including production clusters of CDH 5 and 6.
I once installed the CDP 7.0.3 trial version using the automatic installation script and it was good. Now I wanted to see how the latest
CDP 7.1.1 looks like. So I followed the instructions and downloaded cloudera-manager-installer.bin script.


Then I prepared several virtual CentOs 7.6 hosts with OpenJDK 8 and SELinux turned off and ran the script on one of them.
It was running fine for a while, then after installing the embedded database it halted for a long time.
The installation logs looked like this:
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 0 Jun 12 16:16 0.check-selinux.log
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 0 Jun 12 16:16 1.install-repo-pkg.log
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1843 Jun 12 16:20 2.install-openjdk8.log
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 2205 Jun 12 17:03 3.install-cloudera-manager-server.log
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 22355 Jun 12 17:03 4.check-for-systemd.log
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 3824 Jun 12 17:03 5.install-cloudera-manager-server-db-2.log
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 0 Jun 12 17:03 6.daemon-reload.log
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 0 Jun 12 17:03 7.start-cloudera-scm-server-db.log
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 0 Jun 12 17:03 8.start-cloudera-scm-server.log

 

Note that the last Three steps log files are empty. Step 5 finished successfuly:
Installed:
cloudera-manager-server-db-2.x86_64 0:7.1.1-3274282.el7

Dependency Installed:
postgresql10.x86_64 0:10.12-1PGDG.rhel7
postgresql10-libs.x86_64 0:10.12-1PGDG.rhel7
postgresql10-server.x86_64 0:10.12-1PGDG.rhel7

Complete!

 

I let it run overnight but it still did not finish.


I looked at cloudera-scm-server.log and saw it is spinning endlessly on those two lines:

2020-06-14 16:39:04,574 INFO pool-201-thread-1:com.cloudera.server.cmf.components.CmServerStateSynchronizer: Syncup is started.
2020-06-14 16:39:34,594 INFO pool-201-thread-1:com.cloudera.server.cmf.components.CmServerStateSynchronizer: Cleanup is started

 

Every minute another cycle begun, but there was no other action in the log. I searched those two lines in google but did not come up with
significant results.

 

I deleted the VM, and created a new one but ended up with the same result.

Did anyone succeed in installing a trial cluster from this installation script ? Is it a known issue ?

I then tried a manual approach. I found the cloudera trial yum repository:
[cloudera-manager]
name=Cloudera Manager 7.1.1
baseurl=https://archive.cloudera.com/cm7/7.1.1/redhat7/yum/
gpgkey=https://archive.cloudera.com/cm7/7.1.1/redhat7/yum/RPM-GPG-KEY-cloudera
gpgcheck=1
enabled=1
autorefresh=0
type=rpm-md

 

I used it to install the embedded database, scm-server and the daemons. In the end of the installation I saw the same two lines
spinning in the log. I restarted scm server and this time it started properly and I was able to log in and tried to install a cluster.

 

However, I was'nt able to find the 7.1.1 parcels for trial. All the predefinded parcel repositories required credentials. The highest
version parcels I could get was 6.3.2.
This is a trial version, I expect it to point to a place where I can download 7.1.1 trial parcels.

Is there a working way to install 7.1.1 trial cluster ? What am I missing here ?

 

Thanks you


Guy

Hello @ni4ni ,

 

we were able to reproduce internally the behaviour you reported. As a workaround when the installer hangs, open http://hostname:7180 and proceed with the installation. Raising this internally to investigate further.

Hello @ni4ni ,

 

thank you for sharing with us your observations on the CDP 7.1.1. installation.

 

Regarding to the 7.1.1. parcels, there is a workaround for the bug you hit.

For your convenience pasting here the main steps:

Click Parcel Repositories & Network Settings

Remove that URL, and replace it with:

https://archive.cloudera.com/cdh7/7.1.1.0/parcels/

 

Let me research your observations regarding to the installation script and get back to you.

I used the parcel repo you supplied along with manual installation and it worked.

 

Thank you

I tried this workaround for my installation on Ubuntu 18.04 and nothing...... the error is incomplete installation. I am installing this using the windows subsytem for Linux (windows 10)

 

Do you know a workaround for this please?

 

Thanks
