Parcel distro suffixes

Contributor

Hi,

 

Please suggest  " Is Parcel distro suffix is fixed in custom parcel" ?  like :

 

for a Redhat 6 OS system :

 

MYPARCEL-1.0.0-khirod-01-el6.parcel

 

Or , I can use any custom disto suffix in the above case .

 

like :  MYPARCEL-1.0.0-khirod-01-<something_else>.parcel

 

 

Kind Regards

Khirod

Re: Parcel distro suffixes

If the parcel needs to be deployed in rhel 6, you must use the el6 prefix.
And so on for the other platforms. Otherwise CM won't know a valid parcel
exists for the platform the node runs on

Re: Parcel distro suffixes

The suffix denotes the platform the parcel targets. So el6 is for Red Hat 6 (and CentOS, Oracle Linux etc).

You can model the file names based on the CDH parcels in this URL:

Thanks GoutamG for a quick reply,

 

So you suggest I should stick to the suffix metioned in url ?

 

Is there any issue or sideeffect if I choose any different suffix ?

 

Please suggest.
