FAQ
Hi,

I have successfully installed and tested CDH4 deployment on my test
environment. now I like to implement this on our real environment.
But in my test environment I installed CDH4 software using "root"
credentials and provided password. can I implement the same on my real
environment also. or do you advise to create an headless account on
all systems and provide passwordless root access to that account and
install w/ that account.

pls let me know if I install w/ root account is there going to be any problem?

Thanks,
Chittu

    Hi,

    It should not be a problem. We only use the credentials to run
    the package installations. Once this is complete, the credentials
    are discarded and never used again. So they play no part in how
    CM manages CDH from that point on.
