HDP cluster Installation Failure

Expert Contributor

Hello

My HDP cluster installation through ambari failed. I am getting the following message

http://be-15-061/hdp/HDP/centos7/2.x/updates/2.3.4.0/repodata/repomd.xml: [Errno 14] HTTP Error 503 - Service Unavailable

I am using a local repository. What does this error mean?

This seems to be the problem with the yum repo. Try to disable proxy in "/etc/yum.conf"and see if that helps.

@Ahmad Debbas

Please check your HDP repository and make sure you have internet access from the machine where you are running the installation.

Try #yum clean all and then retry again for installation.

i am hosting the repositories in a windows machine, is that ok?

Re: HDP cluster Installation Failure

Repository on windows server is fine. Unless you have proper access to the windows machine to download packages.

From error it seems your ambari server is not able to download packages from windows machine.

Re: HDP cluster Installation Failure

@Ahmad Debbas

From one of the nodes, are you able to successfully do the following:

wget http://be-15-061/hdp/HDP/centos7/2.x/updates/2.3.4.0/repodata/repomd.xml

that would let us know if the repo server is at least accessible. If this doesn't work, possibly you need to fix it or try hosting in a Linux system. I'm not sure if the Repo can be on a Windows system.

Thanks & Rgds

I updated the .repo file in the ambari repository and it worked.
