  • #41728

    I am trying to install Ambari server on a new machine RHEL 5.8 (2 nodes) Installing HDP 2.0 , ambari server on server2
    I dont see the ‘yum install epel-release’ in the documentation for HDP, Although i had to do it for HDP1.3.2
    Do I need to install epel release for HDP 2 , for ambari server, is this step missing from the documentation ?

    Please let me know.

    No, you do not need the epel-release from what I recall, as this should be available from HDP-UTILS
