Problem Installing Ambari Metrics Collector

New Contributor

Hi Hortonworks expert.

I am new to hortonworks and i am trying to add the Ambari Metrics service.

I have downloaded and running the latest HDP 2.6.1 for VmWare.

While installing the service i am getting the following output:

2017-10-20 18:09:09,287 - Retrying to install package ambari-metrics-collector after 30 seconds

Can anyone of you help me to understand what's going on?

The problem seems to be here:

2017-10-20 18:09:08,960 - Execution of '/usr/bin/yum -d 0 -e 0 -y install ambari-metrics-collector' returned 1. Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: sandbox. Please verify its path and try again



Looks like the "sandbox" repo is causing the issue here. Sandbox repo is just for dev so it can be disabled.


Can you please try to disable the "sandbox" repo by setting "enable=0" as following:

# cat /etc/yum.repos.d/sandbox.repo
[sandbox]
baseurl=http://dev2.hortonworks.com.s3.amazonaws.com/repo/dev/master/utils/
name=Sandbox repository (tutorials)
gpgcheck=0
enabled=0

.

After making the above changes please run yum clean all and then you can try again.

# yum clean all

.
