Unable to install Metron with HDP 2.5

I am trying to install metron 0.4.0 also with Ambari on bare metal.

Following this article:

https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/METRON/Metron+with+HDP+2.5+bare-metal+install

I built the metron code from

https://github.com/apache/incubator-metron

copied the rpms to /localrepo folder.

At the install step in Ambari cluster set up I encountered the error:

failure: repodata/repomd.xml from METRON-0.4.0: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try. file:///localrepo/repodata/repomd.xml: [Errno 14] curl#37 - "Couldn't open file /localrepo/repodata/repomd.xml"

Full Error is attached.metron-install-error.txt

Please advise if there are compatibility issues with HDP 2.5 and Metron 0.4.0

Thanks,

Bala

@Balakrishna Dhanekula - This is yum issue. Can you please double check if you local repo setup correctly? once you have repo setup with correct metadata, you should be able to move forward.

After building rpm files I created /localrepo folder and copied all the rpm files into it below are the list of files:

metron-common-0.4.0-201704260312.noarch.rpm

metron-parsers-0.4.0-201704260312.noarch.rpm

metron-elasticsearch-0.4.0-201704260312.noarch.rpm

metron-data-management-0.4.0-201704260312.noarch.rpm

metron-solr-0.4.0-201704260312.noarch.rpm

metron-enrichment-0.4.0-201704260312.noarch.rpm

metron-indexing-0.4.0-201704260312.noarch.rpm

Ok I have done same as you suggested but still not succeed, got same error which is described above. Kindly help me if you have any idea.

I think you are missing some rpm's are these the only rpm's in the localrepo? here's what i have in my localrepo

Metron-common, metron-config,metron-data-management, metron-elasticsearch, metron-enrichment, metron-indexing, metron-parser, metron-pcap, metron-profiler, metron,rest, metron-solr

Try running createrepo /localrepo again and see if that fixes the issue if not try running mvn clean install followed by cd metron-deployment/packaging/docker/rpm-docker and follow the instructions in

https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/METRON/Metron+0.4.0+with+HDP+2.5+bare-metal+install+on+C...

Did you run "createrepo /localrepo"?

Also, the installation guides have been updated for 0.4.0. Can you try this: https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/METRON/Metron+0.4.0+with+HDP+2.5+bare-metal+install+on+C...

New Contributor

Yes you are right, createrepo was missed.

hi Balakrishna,

I suggest you drop what you're doing with the community metron installation and go to

https://docs.hortonworks.com/HDPDocuments/HCP1/HCP-1.1.0/index.html

and follow instructions on installing HCP which is the HortonWorks cybersecurity package (latest Metron version)

Although the installation is much faster and easier than the painful Metron-0.4.0, HCP does not install everything for you. there are a lot of manual steps to do afterward.

Can you let me know which problems you have with https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/METRON/Metron+0.4.0+with+HDP+2.5+bare-metal+install+on+C...? I've made the guides as simple as possible, but I'm open for additional suggestion 🙂
