@Manoj Kumar

Confirm that you can browse to the newly created local repositories, where <web.server>, <>, <OS>, <version>, and <latest.version> represent the name, home directory, operating system type, version, and most recent release version, respectively:

Can you share your hdf.repo,ambari.repo?

Ambari Base URL







Be sure to record these Base URLs. You will need them when installing Ambari and the cluster.

Steps to install the HDF Management Pack on an HDP Cluster

 stop the ambari server  

# ambari-server stop
Back up your Ambari resources folder

# cp -r /var/lib/ambari-server/resources /var/lib/ambari-server/resources.backup

Release notes for the management pack
On the Ambari host

cd /tmp
wget -nv

Install the mpack

# ambari-server install-mpack --mpack=/tmp/hdf-ambari-mpack- --purge --verbose

Correct output

# ambari-server install-mpack --mpack=/tmp/hdf-ambari-mpack-
The following will be the output:
Using python /usr/bin/python
Installing management pack
Ambari Server 'install-mpack' completed successfully.
Restart Ambari server
# ambari-server start
On the Ambari UI

Navigate to add service and proceed with the desired options 🙂

Basically we see the following failure:

resource_management.core.exceptions.ExecutionFailed: Execution of 'zypper clean --all' returned 1. Unexpected exception.
Url scheme is a required component

So can you please check if by any chance you see that baseurl is Empty in the following repo file on the failing host?

# grep 'baseurl'  /etc/zypp/repos.d/ambari-hdf-51.repo
# grep 'baseurl'  /etc/zypp/repos.d/ambari*

If you see that baseurl is showing incorrect then you should check the repository if that is showing correctly?

Ambari UI --> Stacks and Versions --> Versions (Tab) --> Manage Versions -->  check the URLs entered for "HDF-3.3" 

Also pleas verify if those are accessible? May be using some CURL command try to access those repo URLs from the ambari-server host as well as from the host where the installation is faling?

# curl -iv http://xxxxxxx/repodata/repomd.xml


May be you can check "/var/log/ambari-server/ambari-server.log" as well to see if it is complaining anything about the HDF repo registration?
