HDP on Linux – Installation Forum

HDP Installation failure on Windows 2008 R2

    Hello,

    I am getting the following error when installing HDP on Windows 2008 R2.

    Cannot bind argument to parameter ‘services’ because it is an empty string.

    I believe that I’ve followed the instructions to the letter, and digging through the install scripts hasn’t given me a clue as to how to provide the right data for that parameter. What else should I check?

    thanks!

    Hi Mark,

    Can you please make sure that your name resolution works correctly and IPv6 is disabled? Below are some test that you can perform:

    1. Find IPv4 address and make sure it is preferred:

    C:\Users\Administrator>ipconfig /all

    Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:

    Connection-specific DNS Suffix . :
    Description . . . . . . . . . . . : Intel(R) PRO/1000 MT Network Connection
    Physical Address. . . . . . . . . : 00-50-56-B4-8E-DD
    DHCP Enabled. . . . . . . . . . . : No
    Autoconfiguration Enabled . . . . : Yes
    IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . : 10.10.10.148(Preferred)
    Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.252.0
    Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 10.10.8.1
    DNS Servers . . . . . . . . . . . : 10.10.10.149
    NetBIOS over Tcpip. . . . . . . . : Enabled

    2. Ping IPv4 address with name resolver option and make sure that it resolves to correct FQDN.

    C:\Users\Administrator> ping -a 10.10.10.148
