HDP on Linux – Installation Forum

HDP Manual Install

  • #56916
    David Penfold


    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 brought back v2.1.2.0 rather than which is specified in the install guide. I’m happy using this, but the manual install guide has companion scripts in
    hdp_manual_install_rpm_helper_files- that are specifically for and there doesn’t appear to be a version.

    So, I guess my question is can I use the scripts with the release or should I try to dig out the tar file (or is there a set of companion files that I didn’t see)? Also, why does the latest currently point to rather than

    Thanks in advance,
