HDP on Linux – Installation Forum

HDP Install on Single VirtualBox Node

  • #15413

    I followed the instructions for installing HDP with HMC on a single node cluster ( on a CentOS 6.3 VirtualBox host. I get to the point where everything starts installing but the first step (http://localhost/hmc/html) seems to fail. When I look in the hmc.log file I find the following:

    [2013:02:17 07:27:53][INFO][HMCTxnUtils][HMCTxnUtils.php:137][execBackgroundProcess]: Found child pid, command=/usr/bin/php ./addNodes/verifyAndUpdateNodesInfo.php, txnId=1, output=Executing /usr/bin/php ./addNodes/verifyAndUpdateNodesInfo.php hadoop root 1 102 2 /var/run/hmc/clusters/hadoop/hosts.txt > /var/log/hmc/hmc.txn.1.log 2>&1

    What exactly is the problem here? I couldn’t even uninstall everything as the uninstall failed.

    as I can see, you are trying to use obsolete HDP version…
    Please, do not do it and go to the latest one instead, which is HDP 1.2.1.

    Please, take a look on the step-by-step instructions here:

    Thank you!
