HDP on Linux – Installation Forum

Ambari and Scientific Linux

  • #14154

    At my site, we have a standard install based on Scientific Linux. I thought I would be able to get a quick start with HDP using the automated installation with Amabari. I was disappointed to find that it failed when registering the nodes. Apparently, ambari-server detects the system type as redhat6, while ambari-client detects the same system as scientific6. Scientific Linux, like CentOS, is based on RHEL and this incompatibility surprised me.

    Is there a straightforward configuration modification I can make to enable the automated system to work, or is Ambari too distribution-specific to allow that?

    we are not officially supporting Scientific linux…
    Even if it derived from RedHat, it may have some differences.
    Let us move this discussion out of the forums, I will contact you by e-mail directly.

    Thank you!
