HDP on Linux – Installation Forum

how to avoid HDP.repo being written/created by Ambari

  • #49980

    is there a way to avoid that HDP.repo is being created/written during initial Ambari wizard?
    The problem:
    the cluster nodes doesn’t have direct access to the internet, but the packages can be installed via a proxied RH satellite configuration. But if I leave the default repo URLs in the Ambari wizard, this URL will be written to HDP.repo and afterwards the installation of the cluster nodes fail because they cannot connect to that URL. Sadly there’s currently no direct URL for this proxied satellite stuff available, “yum install <package>” on the command line works on any node as long as the HDP.repo isn’t there.
    Any help highly appreciated, best regards
