Cannot find ambari-server*.rpm

Cannot find ambari-server*.rpm

Explorer

I am right now following the Installation Guide for Apache Ambari from the Wiki:

https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/AMBARI/Installation+Guide+for+Ambari+2.6.0

It seems, though, that I am stuck at Step 2.

For once, I cannot seem to find the folder ambari-server/target/rpm/ambari-server/RPMS/noarch/ from where I am supposed to install ambari-server*.rpm

Hence whenever I am starting the command (yum install ambari-server*.rpm) I just get an error that there is no such package.

I am fairly sure I am missing something. (I am still new to all of this.) But I am not sure, what exactly.

@Rebecca Rump

During Step1 have you really executed the "mvn rpm:rpm" command to generate the RPM?

mvn -B clean install package rpm:rpm -DnewVersion=2.6.0.0.0 -DskipTests -Dpython.ver="python >= 2.6"

.

You will need to have the following packages already installed on your host in order to build Ambari RPMs.

rpmbuild (rpm-build package)
g++ (gcc-c++ package)

.

Please refer to the following doc which tells about the detailed development step of Ambari (including the Ambari RPM build).

https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/AMBARI/Ambari+Development

.

Once RPM build is completed then you will see the "rpm" files generated. You will need to then run the yum command to install that RPM:

# yum install ambari-serverxxxxxxxxx.rpm

.

Here "xxxxxxxxx" will be the version that you have built.
