HDP on Linux – Installation Forum

CentOS 6 HDP 2.0 rpm repository

    I was following installation manual install RPM manually for HDP 2.0 from webpages but since friday mentioned repository is unavailable. The exact link
    name=Hortonworks Data Platform HDP-2.x – Updates

    What is the policy regarding repositories in hortonworks? I suppose that this one should be still supported, right?
    We have half of the environment installed, so I would appreciate some info regarding repository polices availability etc.

    Actually all repositories seems to be unavailable including HDP 2.1

    The repositories should still be available. You can get the repo definition files here:

    And in the Manual Install docs that are part of each release doc set:

    Note: The repositories themselves are not browsable but I can see the repo metadata.

    HDP 2.1 repositories still seem to be unavailable:

    Using: wget -O /etc/yum.repos.d/hdp.repo

    Try /updates/ not /GA/ in the URL. /updates is used when the release is a update (Minor, Maintenance, Patch) to the Major GA release. In this case, the Major release is 2.x so all releases after the initial GA of 2.x are in /updates

    Niel Patel

    Using updates instead of GA in the URL worked, thanks.

    I got the URL with GA from table 1.6 of the Ambari Installation Guide, perhaps the documentation should be updated with the correct links?
