Installing Cloudera Manager 6.3.x or 7.1.1 on CentOS 8.2

New Contributor

Hi guys,

has anyone managed to install Cloudera Manager 6.3.x or 7.1.1 on CentOS 8?

I have tried both of them, but with no success. I know that according to the official documentation Cloudera Manager could be installed max on CentOS 7.8.

Actually CM’ daemons and server are installing without any problems on CentOS 8.2. Only CM agent reports errors - missing python, python-psycopg2 and MySQL-python. All of these packages are already installed, but the CM agent could not find them.

Is there any way to make it install? For example using symlinks on the right places? Do you know where the CM agent looks for python, python-psycopg2 and MySQL-python?


Thank you in advance!

Ideally the Python path looks like this:

[CMroot@xxxx~]# whereis python
python: /usr/bin/python /usr/bin/python2.7 /usr/lib/python2.7 /usr/lib64/python2.7 /etc/python /usr/include/python2.7 /usr/share/man/man1/python.1.gz
[CMroot@xxxx ~]# which python
