How can I install Cassandra in HDP 2.4 sandbox (Virtual Box)

New Contributor

I like to install Cassandra on HDP 2.4 Sandbox to learn about the interconnection between Ambari-Service and Cassandra - I reference to the https://github.com/Symantec/ambari-cassandra-service repository and https://community.hortonworks.com/repos/8588/ambari-cassandra-service.html#comment-32934

This was not working on Virtual Box. Are their description how this can be done manually?

Re: How can I install Cassandra in HDP 2.4 sandbox (Virtual Box)

Hi @Lukas Ott

I was able to install Cassandra in HDP 2.4 sandbox(freshly imported.)

However there are some prerequisites required as mentioned below:

  • Add /etc/yum.repos.d/datastax.repo as given below:
[root@sandbox ~]# cat /etc/yum.repos.d/datastax.repo[datastax]
 name = DataStax Repo for Apache Cassandra
 baseurl = http://rpm.datastax.com/community
 enabled = 1gpgcheck = 0
  • Install python request module using below command:

sudo pip install requests

  • Set seed_provider_parameters_seeds to "sandbox"

Here are some screenshots:

Hi Rahul Pathak,

I followed your instructions to setup Cassandra to my Hortonworks Sandbox (HDP_2.6_vmware_19_04_2017_20_25_43_hdp_ambari_2_5_0_5_1 ) and got an error - Connection failed: [Errno 111] Connection refused to sandbox.hortonworks.com:7000. The following is the steps (login as root):

1) Added file datastax.repo

vi /etc/yum.repos.d/datastax.repo

[datastax]

name = DataStax Repo for Apache Cassandra

baseurl = http://rpm.datastax.com/community

enabled = 1gpgcheck = 0

2) Install Python requests

easy_install-2.6 pip

pip install requests

3) Downloaded the Cassandra service folder

VERSION=`hdp-select status hadoop-client | sed 's/hadoop-client - \([0-9]\.[0-9]\).*/\1/'`

git clone https://github.com/Symantec/ambari-cassandra-service.git /var/lib/ambari-server/resources/stacks/HDP/$VERSION/services/CASSANDRA

4) Restart Ambari

service ambari restart

5) Configured Cassandra: 'Add Service' from the 'Actions' dropdown menu in the bottom left of the Ambari dashboard Set seed_provider_parameters_seeds to "sandbox"

6) Restarted VM and Restarted servcies

7) Got a error in Cassandra, see attached pictures.

Please shed some light on this issue.

Thank you in advance for your reply.
