Hi Sharu,

If you are only looking to try out trafodion from an end-user perspective,
you can try the sandbox that Amanda created recently.

You can find the details in this March archive
under the topic “Trafodion 1.3 Sandbox”

Note that this sandbox is based on Hortonworks 2.2 not CDH, if that will
work for you.

I want to thank everybody for their responses and I am so sorry for such a
delayed response.

I will explain what I am trying to do. I am trying to install trafodion
1.3.0 binaries to experiment with trafodion as an end-user. I am referring
to the steps in the provisioning guide for this purpose.

Reading through the prerequisites and steps in the provisioning guide, I
want to install the binaries on a virtual machine (single-node
environment). I need CDH 5.3 hadoop distribution on the VM to get going.

The problem I have is that when I go to, I only see two
options: download the VM installed with CDH 5.5 or CDH 5.4. (no option of
getting VM with CDH 5.3 or under)

Christophe, you sent me a the link to get CDH 5.3. Would it be OK if I
install CDH 5.3 hadoop distribution on my local machine and get started. I
mean install hadoop CDH 5.3  and trafodion on my machine instead of VM.

I am new to the hadoop world. Sorry if my questions are trivial. Thank you
for your time.

Hi Sharu,

If you don’t want to wait for Trafodion 2.0 release (which will support CDH
5.5), you can still find CDH 5.3 here:

Hi Sharu,

First, welcome!  As Eric asks, are you trying out Trafodion as an
experiment, or do you have a particular use case in mind?

The daily build that Amanda mentions is not necessarily ready for real use
- it's a snapshot build and so might contain incomplete fixes, partial
updates, limited documentation, etc.

The developer daily build is not  recommended for general release usage
because it is a snapshot for testing purposes and so the quality
expectations are different.

For more information on the daily build (especially if you're going to try
to install it), you can see the development list by subscribing to .  That list goes into deep
technical details, build mechanics and more - definitely not a
general-purpose user list, as the daily build is not a general-purpose

If you're interested in trying to build Trafodion or checking out a
developer build as part of becoming more deeply involved in Trafodion,
there are plenty of people on the dev list who can help you out!

We're in the process of putting together Trafodion release 2.0 which is the
official path for supporting Trafodion on Cloudera 5.4.  I've been away at
a conference this week, so haven't seen the latest updates on release 2.0,
but it should be going to release candidate status very soon.

Thanks and again, welcome!

-Carol P.

I am a new user on your mailing list. I was reading the instructions to
download and install Trafodion.

The instructions say that either Cloudera CDH 5.3 or CDH 5.2 are required.
However, I can only find CDH versions 5.4 or higher on

Will it be OK to use hadoop distribution by CDH 5.4 or higher?

Thank you,
