CentOS/RHEL 7.X with MySQL DB for metadata services

CentOS/RHEL 7.X ship with MariaDB and not MySQL. Does anyone have MySQL running on a CentOS/RHEL 7.X? Did you run into any issues with dependencies/etc faced?

Note MySQL DB would be used for Ambari, HS2, Ranger and Oozie.

Re: CentOS/RHEL 7.X with MySQL DB for metadata services

I believe currently HDP doesn't support MariaDB, to install Mysql on Centos7 use this link. Rest things should be fine.

Thanks

Re: CentOS/RHEL 7.X with MySQL DB for metadata services

MariaDB should not be causing any issue (however it is unsupported). However the Databases that are listed here: http://docs.hortonworks.com/HDPDocuments/Ambari-2.2.1.1/bk_Installing_HDP_AMB/content/_database_req... are the Tested and certified configurations.

@Andrew Watson MySQL DB is a certified database and it should work ok on Centos/RHEL7.X when used as HDP Metastores. A future release would start supporting the default MariaDB which is shipped with these OS.
