I want to download older version of CM(5.7) . what I did is
then edit it to 5.7.2 : http://archive.cloudera.com/cm5/installer/5.7.2/cloudera-manager-installer.bin
then this installer bin got downloaded , but when i installed, I found its the latest one, not the older one which i wanted.
I tried it several times, but same thing happened.
please advise as my client wants CM 5.7.2
The cloudera-manager-installer.bin file will always install the latest version of CM.
You could follow the manual directions for PAth B https://www.cloudera.com/documentation/enterprise/5-7-x/topics/cm_ig_install_path_b.html
But you would still have to, assuming your hosts are CentOS 7, edit the /etc/yum.repos.d/cloudera-manager.repo file to look like this:
[cloudera-manager] # Packages for Cloudera Manager, Version 5, on RedHat or CentOS 7 x86_64 name=Cloudera Manager baseurl=https://archive.cloudera.com/cm5/redhat/7/x86_64/cm/5.7.2/ gpgkey =https://archive.cloudera.com/cm5/redhat/7/x86_64/cm/RPM-GPG-KEY-cloudera gpgcheck = 1
You need to point to the /5.7.2/ directory.
