Hi guys, 

I'm a newbie. I have created a 3 node cluster (map 5.1) with the latest patches installed on my cluster. i enabled secure cluster. All ssl_truststore, ssl_keystore, cldb.key and maprserverticket copied to all nodes. it's working.

The vm servers are aa1, aa2 and aa3. The following roles are listed below:


/dev/sda - 100GB - local file system

/dev/sdb - 75GB - Mapr-FS


aa1 - RM (stand by), ZK

aa2 - RM, ZK

aa3 - CLDB, HS, ZK



aa4 - This will be an edge node server that I would like to add to the cluster. I already installed 6.7 CentOS x86_x64.

it has /dev/sda - 100GB (FS). I know an edge know it's a gateway. I'm not so sure what binary i should install on aa4.


Do you know the process of adding an edge node to the existing map 5.1 cluster? 

are these the only binaries that i need to install on the edge node server and then run /opt/mapr/server/

rpm -ivh mapr-fileserver- mapr-core- mapr-nfs- mapr-nodemanager- mapr-mapreduce2-

Note: i'm not planning to add /dev/sdb - 75GB on the edge node.


Appreciate if you could help me out.
