Cloudera agent failing to install

Ok, I'm about to give up. I have spent about 16 hours out of the last 24 trying to resolve this issue. I get this error when adding hosts to my cloudera quickstart. I have just about done everything that is suggested on the internet, not only here but on other blogs/sites as well and nothing is working. It goes through all the steps and fails when it gets to about 80% of the installation (progress bar).

 

So this is the message I get:

 

Error: Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: base
Could not retrieve mirrorlist http://mirrorlist.centos.org/?release=6&arch=x86_64&repo=os&infra=stock error was
14: PYCURL ERROR 6 - "Couldn't resolve host 'mirrorlist.centos.org'

 

I get this for all three Vmware Centos nodes I have created. 

 

Any suggestions/and/or help please????? 

 

Thanks.

Re: Cloudera agent failing to install

Hi Monique,

 

It sounds like your hosts cannot resolve the hostname mirrorlist.centos.org

 

Try logging into those hosts and "ping mirrorlist.centos.org"

 

Do you get a response?

 

That is all I can think of, and I am not sure how you go about fixing it if it does not resolve, sounds like a network issue.

 

Good luck!

 

Tina
