Installation under RHEL 7.3 has some versioning issues

New Contributor

I try to install Ambari-server under RedHat 7.3, python 2.7.5

I got the following Ambari and HDP repositories and ran `yum clean all` just to be sure:

http://public-repo-1.hortonworks.com/ambari/centos7/2.x/updates/2.5.2.0/ambari.repo

http://public-repo-1.hortonworks.com/HDP/centos7/2.x/updates/2.6.2.0/hdp.repo

After I run yum `install ambari-server` i try to setup it using `ambari-server setup` and I am getting the following issue:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/sbin/ambari-server.py", line 40, in <module>
from ambari_server.serverUpgrade import upgrade, upgrade_stack, set_current
File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/ambari_server/serverUpgrade.py", line 51, in <module>
from ambari_server.setupMpacks import replay_mpack_logs
File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/ambari_server/setupMpacks.py", line 30, in <module>
from ambari_commons.inet_utils import download_file, download_file_anyway
ImportError: cannot import name download_file_anyway

It is weird to me that the ambari-server packages are installed under python2.6 (which is not installed) since the RHEL7 version should work with python2.7.

What is the issue? how can it be solved?

Looks like the problem is that you have installed "ambari-server" but not the ambari-agent.

So can you please try the following and see if it works:

1. Reinstall ambari-server

# yum reinstall ambari-server -y

2. Install ambari-agent

# yum install ambari-agent -y

3. Now try to run the ambari-server setup

# ambari-server setup

.
