Can't install CDH 6.3.1 Express Edition

Rising Star

Hi, as we all know CDH 6.3.3 and subsequent versions are not available anymore under "Express licensing" model. Yet, I was in the process of setting up a 6.3.1 installation and apparently this is not possible, because a valid authentication (enterprise) is required. What am I doing wrong?

 

Below, a screenshot from the Installation Guide:

But when I try to import the 6.3.1 Repository (WITHOUT Username and Password as stated on the documentation itself for version < 6.3.3 I get the following error:

 

 

 

 

 

# rpm --import https://archive.cloudera.com/p/cm6/6.3.1/redhat7/yum/RPM-GPG-KEY-cloudera
curl: (22) The requested URL returned error: 401 Authentication required
errore: https://archive.cloudera.com/p/cm6/6.3.1/redhat7/yum/RPM-GPG-KEY-cloudera: lettura importazione fallita(2).

 

 

 

 

 

What am I doing wrong? @Cloudera1 Is this a mistake I'm committing or is it a problem with Cloudera implementing their policies in a wrong way?

 

Thanks for any insights

Hello FrozenWave,

 

Please give the following command a try:

 

# rpm --import https://archive.cloudera.com/cm6/6.3.1/redhat7/yum/RPM-GPG-KEY-cloudera

 

 

The reason you were having issues are that the repository URLs changed for version 6.3.3 and later as referenced here:

https://docs.cloudera.com/documentation/enterprise/6/release-notes/topics/rg_cm_6_version_download.h...

 

The correct base URL for CM 6.3.1 is:

https://archive.cloudera.com/cm6/6.3.1

 

Versus the URL you were trying to use, which requires authentication:

https://archive.cloudera.com/p/cm6/6.3.1

 

I hope this helps!

I tried the URL above but I received a `401 Unauthorized` return.  Did the URLs change again ?
