Is there documentation for deploying spark 2.0 beta w/o cloudera manager on cdh 5.8.x? I was hoping for an rpm, but could not locate one in the repositories and I am not familar with what a cdh parcel is? Seems like we could just drop the spark 2.0 jar in the appropriate lib, but not sure that is sufficeint. Any ideas or pointers to documentation would be greatly appreciated.
You need Cloudera Manager 5.8 or later versions and a parcel install of CDH 5.7+ to deploy Spark 2.0 beta. There is no rpm available (only parcel deployment).
You can find further information on parcels in the below documentation:
