    I followed the instructions exactly as in the documentation , After I copied the repo , tried to install
    sudo cp ambari.repo /etc/yum.repos.d
    sudo yum install epel-release
    I get the below error

    Trying other mirror.
    Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: HDP-UTILS- Please verify its path and try again

    Hi Sivagamasundari,

    Does your machine have internet access? Can you ping public-repo-1.hortonworks.com ?




    I did a wget which executed successfully to download the repo. So I was under the impression that the internet is good.
    I tried the ping and it seems to be hanging…Looks like some setting within our company blocking it.
    Thanks for the response.. I will check with the system config and update this.
    Again, I really appreciate your response.



    How did you get on in the end?




    Out network guys opened up the proxy for us to retrieve it.After which it worked.. But like I mentioned in the other thread I am stuck again on server setup / start
