Re: Not able to open CDH 5 default quickstart VM


Thank you very much for your detail reply.

But I would like to launch 'default' which required 4GB RAM not express.

Because express version requires 8GB and my virtual box has max 7GB.


How to launch default VM?


[cloudera@quickstart ~]$ sudo /home/cloudera/cloudera-manager --express

WARNING: It is highly recommended that you run Cloudera Express in a VM with
at least 8 GB of RAM.

You can override these checks by passing in the --force option,

sudo /home/cloudera/cloudera-manager --force
[cloudera@quickstart ~]$
