No replication button found

No replication button found

I have installed CDH4. I do not see any replication button in services > hdfs1. Because of this I am ot able to proceed with replication. 


I am using Cloudera Standard

Version: Cloudera Standard 4.8.1 (#74 built by jenkins on 20140130-0818 git: b86b260a322d131e5ff7e3aa62cb3b996f12198c)

Server Time: Mar 10, 2014 6:23:02 PM, Coordinated Universal Time (UTC)


According to documentation


Once you have a peer relationship set up with a Cloudera Manager server, you can configure replication of your HDFS data.

  1. From the Services tab, go to the CDH4 HDFS service where you want to host the replicated data.
  2. Click the Replication tab at the top of the page.

But I do not find Replication tab

As you mentioned you are using the Standard Edition.  What you are using is a part of BDR which is separately licensed.  You will need a BDR license to use the replication features.
