New: Cloudera Manager Free Edition Demo VM

Categories: CDH Cloudera Manager General

With the availability of this new demo VM containing Cloudera Manager Free Edition and CDH4.1.2 on CentOS 6.2, getting quick hands-on experience with a freeze-dried single-node Apache Hadoop cluster is just a few minutes away after the download process. 

This new addition to our growing Demo VM menagerie is available, as usual, in VMware, VirtualBox, and KVM flavors. A 64-bit host OS is required.

A few quick notes from the doc:

Once you download and launch the VM, you are automatically logged in as the cloudera user.  Account details:

username: cloudera
password: cloudera

(The cloudera account has sudo privileges in the VM.)

When the VM boots, it will automatically launch Cloudera Manager and configure it to run HDFS, MapReduce, ZooKeeper, HBase, Hue, and Oozie on the machine. You can then open a web browser and open the Cloudera Manager bookmark. Log into Cloudera Manager using these default credentials:

Username: admin
Password: admin

You can also open the bookmarks in the web browser for the individual CDH4 services. Or, you can use the command-line tools.
