We are using Cloudera free edition CDH4 on Centos 6.
I created a local repo of CDH and want to use that versus getting data over our internet connection.
However it seems that the scm generates a new yum repo each time it starts up and overwrites my yum.repos.d repo files.
I see these repo files in the directory below and those are what seem to be used to overwrite /etc/yum.repos.d
Is there anyway to force scm to use my repo files?
When you're in the "add host wizard," there's an option to specify the repo you want to use. We'll always, however, create .repo files and place them in repos.d.
If you want to avoid the issue, you can install packages manually and point /etc/cloudera-scm-agent/config.ini to the server, or manually point to an empty repo: yum will install the packages from whatever repo they get found in.
Thanks Philip. I found this out about 3 hours after I posted this.
I had used that same option in the past but appears I have very short term memory.
I am having the same problem with CM5.5.1. Could you please tell me how to point /etc/cloudera-scm-agent/config.ini to point to my local repository ?
