Whenever I try to install the cloudera using PATH - B, I always face an issue that the cloudera manager cluster setup does not create any of the directories like Namenode Data Directories, Nodemanager Local Directories, Datanode Data Directories, Hive warehouse directory etc. and due to which the setup fails.
As a workaround, I need to create these directories manually on cluster with specified directory user and then, when I run the setup it works fine.
Can anybody please suggest what could be the reason that the cloudera manager cluster setup is not creating these directories automatically.
While I don't have an answer to your direct question (I'm not an expert) I can point you to this community article including videos on installation path B. Perhaps the answer is in the video walk through.
Best of luck,
