HDP on Linux – Installation Forum

Installing HDP

    I want to install HDP without the GSinstaller – does anyone know how to do that?

    Hi Mayank,

    The Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) can be installed through the GSinstaller command line tool. Currently, there is no other supported tool to install HDP.

    The GSinstaller tool provides functionality to install a customizable configuration of the various components in HDP across a multi-node cluster of machines. The tool manages the download and deployment of HDP on a cluster and includes a mechanism to test the installation to ensure it has completed successfully.

The forum ‘HDP on Linux – Installation’ is closed to new topics and replies.
