BTW, I went for the local offline repo install, but even the normal hdp.repo linked to here http://docs.hortonworks.com/HDPDocuments/HDP2/HDP-2.1-latest/bk_installing_manually_book/content/rpm-chap1-3.html points to http://public-repo-1.hortonworks.com/HDP/centos6/2.x/GA/2.1-latest/hdp.repo which is again 220.127.116.11 rather than 18.104.22.168

HDP Manual Install
after giving up on an Ambari installation I’m now trying a manaul install to have better control over what is going on. I’ve created a local repository but http://public-repo-1.hortonworks.com/HDP/centos6/2.x/GA/2.1-latest/HDP-2.1-latest-centos6-rpm.tar.gz brought back v22.214.171.124 rather than 126.96.36.199 which is specified in the install guide. I’m happy using this, but the manual install guide has companion scripts in http://public-repo-1.hortonworks.com/HDP/tools/188.8.131.52/
hdp_manual_install_rpm_helper_files-184.108.40.2063.tar.gz that are specifically for 220.127.116.11 and there doesn’t appear to be a 18.104.22.168 version.
So, I guess my question is can I use the 22.214.171.124 scripts with the 126.96.36.199 release or should I try to dig out the 188.8.131.52 tar file (or is there a 184.108.40.206 set of companion files that I didn’t see)? Also, why does the latest currently point to 220.127.116.11 rather than 18.104.22.168?
Thanks in advance,
