"ambari-server setup" with no Internet connection

  • #53223

    I’ve installed all rpms required using our local repository with no directly connection to the Internet. While trying to set up ambari-server, I’ve encountered the following problem. As this machine doesn’t have connection to the Internet, how do I change where it should get jdk?

    Downloading JDK from to /var/lib/ambari-server/resources/jdk-6u31-linux-x64.bin
    ERROR: Exiting with exit code 1. Reason: Downloading or installing JDK failed:

    ambari-server setup -j /path/to/your/installed/jdk

    Two choices:

    1) pre-install the JDK on the machines (and set a custom java home path during ambari-server setup) and use the command in the previous comment

    2) download that file (where you have internet connectivity) and put it in place under /var/lib/ambari-server/resources before you run setup, and choose the JDK 1.6 option. It will recognize the file is already there and not attempt download.
