    Hi Devopam,

    If you don’t have any specific issue while installing, please look at instructions for both manual and using Ambari @ http://docs.hortonworks.com/HDPDocuments/HDP2/HDP-2.1-latest/index.html

    hi Sanjeev,
    I am facing the following issue while trying to go for Ambari based automated cluster installation of HDP2.1 platform on CentOS 7.

    Seems there is a hard dependency on Python2.6 in the rpm based installation which is clashing with the Python 2.7 version on CentOS 7.
    I have installed python2.6 package and changed the $PATH so that it gets invoked first and it is working well via terminal but not while trying to install over yum.

    Any pointers will be really helpful
