Deployment of Cloudera Enterprise 5.4.4(CDH 5) on Microsoft Azure Virtual Machine & Running Impala shell as single node cluster


Deployment of Cloudera Enterprise (CDH) 5.4.4 can be implemented directly on Microsoft Azure Virtual Machines  & we can start working on Impala shell & Hue itself.

The hosting process is super easy, just need to make sure the following prerequisites & troubleshooting steps should be taken care off.

Prerequisites :

  1. SELinux should be disabled,

Before disabling SELinux you may try sysctl -w vm.swappiness=0.

You have to add the line below in /etc/sysctl.conf to keep your change permanently:

vm.swappiness = 10

  1.  Change the root password
  2. Change the hostname in /etc/hosts file
  3. Add ports 7180, 7182, 9000, 9001 open
  4. Passwordless sudo user authentication
  5. Change the /etc/hosts file , the hostname from hosts IP address by $ifconfig

 Issue: Cloudera Manager site is not opening on browser after installation & the following error shows on log

cloudera-scm-server dead but pid file exists

Follow the steps:

# service cloudera-scm-server stop

# service cloudera-scm-server-db stop

# rm /var/run/cloudera-scm-server.pid

# service cloudera-scm-server-db start

# service cloudera-scm-server start
