Let’s first check the current version of Cloudera Manager. Go to Home → Support → About.
Open up a Docker Bash terminal and go to the directory /etc/yum.repo.d/.
List of configuration files available in the /etc/yum.repo.d/ Directory.
Open the “cloudera-manager.repo” file using the vi editor. To check the baseurl source available for Cloudera Manager, we can use an archive link as well as a local copy of the Cloudera Manager.
In this case, we have to use the source which is available at “archive.cloudera.com”.
We have used given base URL
Cloudera — CM5 version.
Operating System — Redhat 6 version.
These are the details available in the cloudera-manager.repo.
