Installing Cloudera Manager using Path B

New Contributor

I'm trying to get Cloudera Manager installed and set up to manage a set of about 10 nodes. I've got the server running on one system and the agent running on the 10 nodes. The problem I'm having is that when I go through the wizard, I get as far as the "Specify Hosts" page but don't have any option to add hosts that are already running the agent. Step 5 of the "Choose Cloudera Manager Edition and Hosts" section says that there should be a "Currently Managed Hosts" tab, but there are no tabs on my "Specify Hosts" page. I only have the box to enter hosts and the box to specify what port ssh runs on. Anyone know what's going on? What am I missing?

Re: Installing Cloudera Manager using Path B

Did you configure the agents to talk to your Cloudera Manager server and start them? This is on the path B documentation, but it can be easy to miss if you aren't reading carefully.

Wow. How did I miss that. See, I knew it was probably something stupid. I, of course, got the agents installed, but didn't see the configuration instructions on there at all. Thanks!
