I registered for the demo trial and selected the Amazon Cloudera option (with Zoomdata). The first time I tried, the formation said it started, Amazon instances showed up running, and I got an e-mail directing me to the Guidance Page. I went to the Guidance Page where it showed the progress bar at 88%. But, it would not go any further and the page appeared to be looping.
I shut everything down and restarted twice. Now, I see the formation as created and the instances show up, but I get no e-mails at all. Just for fun I tried connecting to the manager node address through the browser but my browser tells me it can't find the page.
Note: I used the same Access Code for each attempt.
What am I doing wrong?
Well, that sounds like part of my problem right there. I have been using the same access key each time I've restarted. How do I get another access key associated with the information you already have?
I went ahead and registered again ( to get another access code). We'll see how this works.
I waited. It took a while. Now I got a page with links to tutorials/management etc. When I go to some of those pages I get asked for credentials. I have not received any additional e-mails yet. Am I supposed to get one that lists the credentials for getting into the various features (pages that are linked)?
Yeah, I stopped the instances when I left last night. I just restarted them. I will look on the master node for the Hue and CM passwords. In any case this is what I'm seeing right now:
Going to look for those passwords now...
OK. I found the password file. My browser is showing the following while waiting for that nice link page:
This is what it was doing yesterday. It would flip between this and showing the progress bar. At some point it will succeed and I'll see the links page.
