I am trying to install the ranger service using cloudera Manager. But I am running into the following issues.
I am using CDP 7.0.3
Failing step says unable to find db_password from the install.properties file which was already supplied by me in the previous step of the wizard.
Also I used the ranger GUI to login: http://<FQDN:6080>
Password: tried both “admin” and < rangeradmin_initial> password which was prompted after the role assignment screen of the wizard. But was unable to login.
1) Yes I have tried to install on different host.
2) xxxx-ranger-RANGER_ADMIN-SetupRangerCommand the db_password was truely missing
3) There are no tables created in the ranger DB . However GUI is apprearing but it think it is just dummy since there are no tables in ranger DB.
4) there is no error thrown there.. except a exclamatory mark .
I just learnt that CDP DC 7.0 does not support MariaDB yet, only PostgreSQL 10
Are you able to either upgrade to 7.1 or change to Postgres 10 to see if that can help to resolve your issue?
We moved forward with the issue with the following procedure:
This was an workaround for us.
