    When I am installing an ISO of centos 6 for a slave node, is it OK to do a minimal installation?

    Yes, it should be OK, yum will pull all needed dependencies automatically.
    To minimize HDP installation time, you may want to go to “Basic Server” load.

    Thank you!

    thank you for your guidance.
