How to use Hortonworks repos while adding a node?

How to use Hortonworks repos while adding a node?

Explorer

For some reason,

HDP.repo and HDP_UTILS.repo files have baseurl=http://ambariserverFQDN/yum/HDP...

These are downloaded automatically while using ambari to add a node. How to change that to regular hortonworks repo?

Even the ambari.repo had same issue but I changed that in the ambari server node. Now the new ambari.repo file is downloaded to the new node which is being added.

have you tried the option to manually load the repos?

manually as in? I have tried modifying the repo files in the new node. However, ambari overwrites them when installing Datanode etc.

Hi @Piyush Routray

What ambari version you are using?

Looks like you have added base url manually in ambari for HDP repo.

Do you see option in ambari to use public repo?

ambari 2.2.2

While installing through UI, I see only 'Default' as the option.
