well, I played around with this during my lunch break and it seems related to the local repositories I set up. When I flipped the one machine that has internet connectivity to use the ambari.repo from http://public-repo-1.hortonworks.com/ambari-beta/centos6/1.x/beta/ instead of using the local repository the DataNode completed installation. I’ll have to investigate this more when I get home.

Ambari DataNode Install Error
I’m getting the error below when the DataNode is trying to install. I haven’t had much luck in tracking down what this error is related to and how I can correct it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
