Cannot access nexus-private.hortonworks.com

New Contributor

Hi everyone,

Recently when I compile Ambari from source code, I got the error, which said that it cannot download XML files from http://nexus-private.hortonworks.com/nexus/content/groups/public/ . Can you guys still access this address without any problems? One week ago I could successfully download XMLs from this URL, but now I can't . I even got timeout when I ping this domain. Did Hortonworks change this repo URL recently?

I am not getting any timeout while accessing the repo.

Can you please try again?

Example:

# curl http://nexus-private.hortonworks.com/nexus/content/groups/public/


<html>
  <head>
    <title>Index of /groups/public</title>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8"/>

    <link rel="icon" type="image/png" href="https://nexus-private.hortonworks.com/nexus/favicon.png">
    <!--[if IE]>
    <link rel="SHORTCUT ICON" href="https://nexus-private.hortonworks.com/nexus/favicon.ico"/>
    <![endif]-->

    <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://nexus-private.hortonworks.com/nexus/static/css/Sonatype-content.css?2.11.2-06" type="text/css" media="screen" title="no title" charset="utf-8">

  <body>
    <h1>Index of /groups/public</h1>

I tried using a website: https://asm.ca.com/en/ping.php. It's an online ping tools. But still got negative answers.

One of my friends located in Australia helped me access this URL: http://nexus-private.hortonworks.com/nexus/content/groups/public/ but he still got 404.


I am totally confused. Did you change any network configurations?

Add a mirror to above repository in the .m2/settings.xml in local root directory of maven.

This provides a alternate way to get the required artifacts. 

The url is "https://repo.hortonworks.com/content/repositories/releases/"

 

Add the following in settings.xml under <mirrors></mirrors>

 

<mirrors>

<mirror>
  <id>alternate</id>
  <name>alternate to hortonworks</name>
  <mirrorOf>*,!central</mirrorOf>
  <url>https://repo.hortonworks.com/content/repositories/releases/</url>

</mirror>

</mirrors>

Just tried repo.hortsonwork.com, it is accessible. 

I have noticed that most of the links other than nexus-private.hortonworks.com and dev.hortonwork.com.s3.awsamazon.com are no more accessible as all the public REPO links are no longer private. Even the new links shared by the CDH/HDP require credentials to get the repos.

 

Still looking for an alternative. if anyone has found any solution, please guide us the way forward.
