I mirrored Cloudera Manager repo and CDH repo locally in our local network. Then I installed Cloudera manager on server (with cloudera-manager.repo and cloudera-cdh5.repo pointing to my mirroed local repo), for this step it does install from my local mirrored repo. Then I connect to 7180 port with my browser, and begin to config and install. At the install step it is found that cloudera manager overwrite my local repo.conf under /etc/yum.repos.d/ and points back to internet again (archives.cloudera.com/.....). and so all CDH RPMs are downloading again and again. This is time consuming, and also put load and bills on cloudera network. Is this phenomena supposed behavior, or is there a trick, config file, or something similar we need to toggle with? Thanks a lot. How to duplicate: Just do a fresh CM installation on redhat/centos box, with a local mirror of CDH5 and CM5 repos. Thanks.

I have an existing CDH working great. While our management team likes to install a web based mamagenment interface (cloud manager) for easy management and monitoring. I tried to install cloud management but it always fails at namenode formating step -- it should not do so as I alaready have an existing HDFS (name node, secondary name node, data nodes) working perfectly. My CDH is 5.2.1. Thanks.
