Is it possible to install Ambari (HDP) on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS ? Even it is not official supported?

Is there a way to install HDP on Ubuntu 18.04, even it is not official supported? Does anyone have experience with that? Or is it impossible.

It all depends on if there were any architectural changes to the parts of the OS that HDP interacts with. You can try installing it and testing it out to know for sure, but I would imagine it is possible. I have not tried it myself nor would I recommend it until it is certified.

Hi @Andreas Kühnert ,

As per the Ubuntu 18:04 is not tested and certified by Hortonworks QE team for using with HDP. but i see as Ubuntu 16:04 is certified their won't be any issue with using 18.04.

Have a look on the python version and jdk version and see if its in supported list.

Hope this helps you.

Hi @Akhil S Naik

I tried and Ambari says on confirmation hosts step following:

Exception:Registration failed due to:Cannotregister host withnot supported os type, hostname=xxxx, serverOsType=ubuntu18, agentOsType=ubuntu18
