    Hi Manickam

    Cloudera Manager can use its own Postgres database to back the
    configuration of your cluster. This makes it very easy to stand up a
    cluster - but is not suggested long term for production clusters, or
    clusters over a few 10's of nodes. In those cases, you will likely want to
    use MySQL or Oracle as the back-end for your Cloudera Manager instance.

    If you would like to proceed with the easy installation of using the
    postgres, it looks like your installation can't install the
    'postgresql-server' package from your distribution repositories. I'd try
    installing that and see what the issue is
    For instance, on redhat:

    yum install postgresql-server


    And whatever issue might be preventing it from installing, resolve that
    first.

    Thanks,
    Adam

    Hi Manickam,

    In that case, you want to install Installation Path B (you can't use the
    wizard to install - well, you can, but it would require some finesse)

    http://www.cloudera.com/content/cloudera-content/cloudera-docs/CM4Ent/latest/Cloudera-Manager-Installation-Guide/cmig_install_path_B.html

    The gist is that you will install
    - MySQL
    - Cloudera Manager packages via yum repository
    - then you will run a script (called "scm_prepare_database") that will set
    up mysql with the right schema
    - then start Cloudera Manager

    At that point, you'll proceed through the graphical installation wizard
    like normal
    The link above should have all the piece-parts you need, but let us know if
    you run into any challenges
    Thanks,
    Adam

    Manickam,

    Are you following the instruction here on installing with your own
    setup? Most likely Approach "B" is what you want if you are _not_ going
    to use the bundled postgres DB and use an external mysql DB instead.

    http://www.cloudera.com/content/cloudera-content/cloudera-docs/CM4Ent/latest/Cloudera-Manager-Installation-Guide/cmig_install_cm_cdh.html

    As a pre-step you would prepare your mysql DB, you need to follow this
    documentation:

    http://www.cloudera.com/content/cloudera-content/cloudera-docs/CM4Ent/latest/Cloudera-Manager-Installation-Guide/cmig_install_mysql.html

    To cleanup from your previous install attempt you can review this
    content here:
