Could not start cloudera-scm-server after fresh installation


I installed cloudera manager 5.4.8 and agent with yum and using mysql as database


Following are the steps


sudo yum -y install mysql-server
sudo service mysqld stop
sudo /sbin/chkconfig mysqld on
sudo service mysqld start
sudo mysqladmin -u root password password
sudo yum -y install mysql-connector-java
sudo yum -y install oracle-j2sdk1.7
sudo wget -P /etc/yum.repos.d
// Modify /etc/yum.repos.d/cloudera-manager.repo to install version 5.4.8
sudo yum clean all
sudo yum install cloudera-manager-agent cloudera-manager-server
sudo /usr/share/cmf/schema/ mysql cmf cmf cmf


I have configured following database in mysql


create database cmf;
create database metastore;
create database rman;

grant all on cmf. * to 'cmf'@'localhost' identified by 'cmf';
grant all on metastore. * to 'hive'@'localhost' identified by 'hive';
grant all on metastore. * to 'hive'@'%' identified by 'hive';
grant all on rman. * to 'rman'@'localhost' identified by 'rman';

flush privileges;


[root@cluster cloudera-scm-server]# /etc/init.d/cloudera-scm-server start
Starting cloudera-scm-server: [FAILED]


There is no log file at /var/log/cloudera-scm-server but only following file exist



This file has only one line

[root@cluster cloudera-scm-server]# cat /var/log/cloudera-scm-server/cloudera-scm-server.out
could not open session


I do not file any other error.

Can someone help here where should i troubleshoot?


OS : centos 6.7

BTW i am trying to install cloudera on base centos 6.7 image with docker.

Not sure if in case this error has to do anything due to docker
