Unable to Install Nifi to existing cluster


I'm Unable to add HDF Package ( Nifi ) 3.0.3 to existing Cluster . Versions which I'm using HDP version 2.6.3 and Ambari 2.6.0. I'm using Cent OS 7.2.

Steps I'm following to Install:

-> Installed the M-Pack using the command ambari-server install-mpack --mpack=/tmp/hdf-ambari-mpack-<version>.tar.gz --verbose

-> ambari-server restart

-> Added Base URL for HDF 3.0.3(Local and Public repo ) and Added Base URL for HDF 3.0.2 . Both ways It failed ..

Followed the URL to install

And I see this Warning You cannot install HDF 3.0.3 on systems other than IBM Power Systems. For information about the latest release on systems other than IBM Power Systems, see the HDF 3.0.2 Release Notes.

This is my local Repo file hdf.repo ( adjusted the public URL when i'm using the URL)

	name=HDF Version - HDF-

@Raj ji

The HDF 3.0.3 release is only compatible with IBM Power systems.

For other systems you need to use HDF 3.0.2 or HDF 3.1.x versions.

Thank you,



Thanks for the Quick response , I have tried using 3.0.2 tarball and repo . Still facing the same issue . However I have installed mpack for 3.0.3 . Dont know how to remove this Mpack .


When I installed , MPACK for 3.0.2 . I get this error below :

How do I start with fresh install now when I have already installed mpack for 3.0.3 and 3.0.3 HDF . Do you have any command to remove all the files which I have installed.

Hi @Raj ji,

You can try uninstalling the mpack with the following command:

ambari-server uninstall-mpack --mpack-name=hdf-ambari-mpack --verbose

And then installing the appropriate management pack

ambari-server install-mpack --mpack=hdf-ambari-mpack- --verbose

Make sure to stop ambari first and then start after you've installed the correct mpack.

@Raj ji As the warning says you should not install this build 3.0.3 unless you are on IBM Power System. Are you on IBM Power Systems? If not, you should install 3.0.2.



thanks Felix , However ,I have tried installing the 3.0.2 Same error . please find the attached error for your reference when I installed with 3.0.2error-302.txt .


tar.pngHi All,

I have only these options , I do not have good internet connection . However, I have created a repo . but I can see only tar files in the hdf repo tar ball.

If you download and add to the Ambari Manage -> versions-> add the local repo URL (

and get this error

Some of the repositories failed validation. Make changes to the base url or skip validation if you are sure that urls are correct

HOwever When I look at the HDF repo directory it has only tar files of services . I do not think it is a valid repo .
