While trying to install cloudera 6.1.1
In the install agent step everytime it is giving an error --- "can not find the base url for cloudera manager" . On every restart of that step it is downloading the cloudera.repo file which is empty and not having base url and gpg key from the server.
Kindly help as I am struck here from long time
It looks like you are using ssl (https) and you mentioned cloudera-manager.repo content is empty on the agent hosts. I wonder if the agent hosts do not have direct outbound access to internet?
There is an open bug that CM agent does not download key bundles when behind proxy with auth & SSL even you have configured the proxy setting in CM UI. I feel this may be the cause of the issue you are facing.
Could you please try this test and see if that helps to remedy the issue? Please try to pre-configure https_proxy in each CM agent host's bash environment. For example:
echo "https_proxy=http://yourproxyhost.com:3128" >> /etc/bashrc echo "no_proxy=*.your_internal_domain.com" >> /etc/bashrc
Thanks and hope this helps!
