I downloaded the Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP®) version 2.6.3 on Hortonworks Sandbox (download for VMWare). I have tried to install the HDF mpack but I have the following error (2.png):
I tried to move the HDP folder to avoid the symlink error, finally I managed to install it successfully. (I think it may fail for that reason)
Finally, I access the ambari interface to install the hdf version but have not been able to do so. (1.png)
What can I do about it?
Maybe this manual helps you, you'll have to change the URL for Ambari when you install HDF on an existing HDP:
Thanks for the answer, Harald.
I have tried that option, but I can't install it either, I have the same error with symlink.
I think the management pack needs to be installed first, then the URL needs to be changed,and then it should be working with Ambari.
But: can you see from the log which file or symlink already exists? Maybe we can solve the issue on this direction.
Here is a supportkb entry, which sounds like your issue:
Seems to be related to components that are included in HDP and HDF.
