Installing with the MapR Installer

The MapR Installer makes the installation of a MapR cluster easy. It installs MapR software after it takes you through the process of selecting services and configuring the cluster.

To see the MapR Installer in action, watch this video.

  1. Select a node to run the MapR Installer.The node from which you run the MapR Installer must also be one of the nodes you plan to install the cluster on. Before you begin, you may want to check the prerequisites and known issues.
  2. Download the mapr-setup.sh script. Download mapr-setup.sh from mapr.com. Then, copy mapr-setup.sh to the node that will run the MapR Installer.
  3. Run the mapr-setup.sh script to configure the node to run the MapR Installer. Run the following command as the root user from the directory that contains the script:
    ./mapr-setup.sh
  4. Start the MapR Installer. Open the MapR Installer URL:
    https://<Installer node hostname/IPaddress>:9443

    You will be prompted to log in as the MapR Administrator user that you configured while running the mapr-setup.sh script.
