Looking back at your permissions, it appears that you have the following as reported by "stat /usr/java/jdk1.8.0_72/bin/java":
Access: (0776/-rwxrwxrw-) Uid: ( 504/ hduser) Gid: ( 504/ hadoop)
Since the shell used to start Clouder Manager is owned by cloudera-scm, this would mean that unless you altered your init script to start as user "hduser" then "other" users don't have access to run java.
Try adding the execute permission for other on your java binary and try starting Cloudera Manager.
Thanks for the quick response. You're suggestion allowed to inch closer, but new problem exists..

I created symlink for java and ensured shared library is recognized for access by root user..

It appears that cloudera-scm still cannot access files in the java directories. Check that the file is read/execute by other.
This is mine:
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 106366 Sep 2 2014 libjli.so
I recommend just doing the following as again it appears there are permission problems in your JDK
chmod -R 777 /usr/java/jdk1.8.0_72
I'm not sure why permissions are like they are, but normally java is accessible by "other" I believe.
It looks like you installed Java as hduser instead of as root. This will prevent other users from accessing it.
Could you try uninstalling java, and re-installing it as root?
I got the same problem when I put the Java files in my home directory. It only worked after I put the Java files in the /usr/java directory.
