Designating a Replication Source

Required Role:

The Cloudera Manager Server that you are logged in to will be treated as the destination of replications setup via that Cloudera Manager. From the Admin Console of this destination Cloudera Manager, you can designate a peer Cloudera Manager Server which will be treated as a source of HDFS and Hive data for replication.

Configuring a Peer Relationship

  1. Navigate to the Peers page by selecting Administration > Peers. The Peers page displays. If there are no existing peers, you will see only an Add Peer button in addition to a short message. If you have existing peers, they are listed in the Peers list.
  2. Click the Add Peer button.
  3. In the Add Peer pop-up, provide a name, the URL (including the port) of the Cloudera Manager Server that will act as the source for the data to be replicated, and the login credentials for that server. Cloudera recommends that SSL be used and a warning is shown if the URL scheme is http instead of https.
  4. Click the Add Peer button in the pop-up to create the peer relationship. The peer is added to the Peers list.
  5. To test the connectivity between your Cloudera Manager Server and the peer, select Actions > Test Connectivity.

Modifying Peers
