I am on centos 7 and cant open this page http://Server host:7180 to begin my installation .
I see no errors in /var/log/cloudera-scm-server/cloudera-scm-server.log, iptables has been stopped and sestatus is disabled.
sudo netstat -anp | grep 7180
tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:7180 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 22233/java
wget localhost:7180/ return index.html with 200 Ok
what could be wrong?
turns out that my entire lab was behind another firewall, so browsers were not able to pull up the webpage.
So basically the firewall problem was not that selinux was running ( it was disabled ), but there was another firewall protecting the entire lab.
