Cloudera Manager installation issue in RHEL 5.7

Hi,

 

We are trying to install CDH 4.4 on RHEL 5.7. But the installation was aborted because of Postgres DB installation issues. 

 

Logs from /var/log/cloudera-manager-installer/4.install-cloudera-manager-server-db.log

 

Loaded plugins: product-id, security, subscription-manager
Updating Red Hat repositories.

Error: Missing Dependency: postgresql-server >= 8.0 is needed by package cloudera-manager-server-db-4.7.3-1.cm473.p0.163.el5.x86_64 (cloudera-manager)
You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
You could try running: package-cleanup --problems
package-cleanup --dupes
rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
The program package-cleanup is found in the yum-utils package.

 

Please let me know how to proceed furthur.

 

Thanks in advance,

Naresh

Re: Cloudera Manager installation issue in RHEL 5.7

As per the Installation Requirements of CM 4.7.3, PostGres 8.1 or higher is required.  You are on an older version of RHEL and therefore do not have a new enough version of PostGres.  You can try the following command and see if you can get postgres upgraded to an acceptable version:

 

yum update postgresql-server

Re: Cloudera Manager installation issue in RHEL 5.7

We dont have PostgresSQL installed already in the VM. We are following Path A type automated installation mentioned here .

Between yum update for postgresql-server is failed as there is no package available with the name postgresql-server


As per the Cloudera documentation we dont need to install any dependencies if we follow Path A right.

Re: Cloudera Manager installation issue in RHEL 5.7

Ah, ok.  You are correct that you are not supposed to have to pre-install postgresql for Path A.  It's possible that there the latest version of CM has dependencies that are incompatible with RHEL 5.7, even though the document I linked claims support for RHEL 5.7.

 

I will investigate and get back to you.

Re: Cloudera Manager installation issue in RHEL 5.7

OK, apparently this is a misconfiguration in your yum repos.  I'm not sure what error you are getting when trying to install postgresql-server, but our installer will use yum to do that and is apparently not able to contact the RHEL repos.
