    Anyways, I’ve started downloading the RPMS from

    Looks like I need to install the RPMs and it’s dependencies one by one to get over this issue. Possibly my Linux version is not registered with redhat, may be that is the reason could not install with yum, but the thing is that I could install ambari-server with out any issue.


    Hi Jayashankar,

    This should have been posted in the installation forum, not the Sandbox forum. But yes, if you copy of RedHat is unregistered you’ll have may difficulties installing as access to the RedHat repositories is not allowed when the copy is unregistered. I would suggest that you either register your RedHat or move to CentOS.
