How to install Ambari 2.7.4 without using bundled postrges?

New Contributor



yum install ambari [HDP version] also installs bundled version of postgresql which is way too old.

Is there any way to install ambari server without using the bundled postgresql? Thanks.

Enter advanced database configuration [y/n] (n)? y
