Thank you for response. I installed SOLR using parcels. My question was about the directory structure. Cloudera documentation and tutorial do not say anything about differences in directory structure depending on the installation method (parcels vs packages), so I was not sure that everthing was ins talled properly, Later I found that Cloudera Search installation through the Cloudera Manager and parcels installs everything in the /opt/cloudera/parcels/SOLR directory, which is a soft link to the real version of the SOLR installed on each cluster node: $ ls -l /opt/cloudera/parcels total 12 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 26 Dec 20 12:04 CDH -> CDH-4.5.0-1.cdh4.5.0.p0.30 drwxr-xr-x 9 root root 4096 Nov 20 21:09 CDH-4.5.0-1.cdh4.5.0.p0.30 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 21 Dec 24 11:35 IMPALA -> IMPALA-1.2.1-1.p0.850 drwxr-xr-x 9 root root 4096 Nov 22 03:29 IMPALA-1.2.1-1.p0.850 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 27 Dec 23 18:47 SOLR -> SOLR-1.1.0-1.cdh4.3.0.p0.21 drwxr-xr-x 7 root root 4096 Nov 21 06:12 SOLR-1.1.0-1.cdh4.3.0.p0.21 My first impression was that installation is not compete, otherwise I would see all the directories were the tutorial says (maybe linked to directories in "/opt/cloudera/parcels/SOLR"). Now I understand that we should just use whatever is installed in /opt/cloudera/parcels/SOLR directory. Cloudera documentation should document this facts. Thanks, Victor

I just installed Cloudera Manager 4.8 (Cloudera Standard 4) following "Installation Path A - Automated Installation by Cloudera Manager" and created a cluster of four nodes. I need to install and use Cloudera Search, so I added necessary services: hdfs, mapreduce, zookeeper and solr. I did not add flume, hue, inpala, etc. as I want bare mimimum for Cloudera search. As I understand from documentation "Installing Cloudera Search" at: http://www.cloudera.com/content/cloudera-content/cloudera-docs/Search/latest/Cloudera-Search-Installation-Guide/csig_install_search.html and from the article "How-to: Add Cloudera Search to Your Cluster using Cloudera Manager" posted at CLoudera blogs: http://blog.cloudera.com/blog/2013/11/how-to-add-cloudera-search-to-your-cluster-using-cloudera-manager/ I do not need anything else and can now proceed to "Cloudera Search Tutorial" to test my installation. "Cloudera Search Installation Approaches" says: Cloudera Search currently supports installation using either packages or using Cloudera Manager I noticed though that files and directories I found in Cloudera QuickStart VM and mentioned in the tutiorial are not installed in my cluster. Following directories are missing: - /usr/share/doc/search*/ - /usr/lib/solr - /usr/lib/search - /etc/default/solr - etc. Shall I install Cloudera Search manually, as descibed in "Installing Solr Packages"? Thanks.
