Add HDP MPack to HDF Install

Add HDP MPack to HDF Install

Expert Contributor

Is it possible to install another MPack alongside the current HDF Mpack? The initial Ambari install was done with the --purge option. I want to add HDP components to HDF. Also, where are the links for the mpacks?

Current Mpack: hdf-ambari-mpack-3.0.1.1-5.tar.gz

@Joe P Installation docs are available here: https://docs.hortonworks.com/HDPDocuments/HDF3/HDF-3.0.1.1/bk_planning-your-deployment/content/ch_de... The order in which you install MPacks matters. You can install the HDF MPack on an HDP cluster. However, I don't believe trying to install an HDP MPack on an HDF cluster is supported.

Interesting, I find it strange that existing HDF clusters cannot be converted to HDF+HDP. You would think that would be the most common situation when try to utilize sqoop or other technologies on a pre-configured HDF cluster. Do you have any links for HDP Mpacks?

@Joe P

The HDP MPack is bundled with Ambari itself. I'm not aware of any direct links to the HDP MPacks.
