What is os type os type redhat-ppc7 ?

Googling "redhat-ppc7" doesn't really return any meaningful explanation. What is redhat=ppc7 and what is the difference between redhat-ppc7 and redhat7 ?

@Zaili Xu,

The difference between redhat-ppc7 and redhat7 is the OS architecture. redhat ppc has powerpc architecture whereas redhat7 has x86.

Thanks,

Thank you, @Aditya Sirna. How do I tell whether the following OS is of ppc ?

$ uname -a
Linux my.hostname 3.10.0-327.36.3.el7.x86_64 #1 SMP Thu Oct 20 04:56:07 EDT 2016 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

As noted in the answer by @Aditya Sirna, 'ppc64le' is not present in your OS description. Your cluster is based on the x86 architecture.

@Zaili Xu,

This is the output from one of the ppc nodes.

[root@hdp-test-4 ~]# uname -a
Linux hdp-test-4 3.10.0-693.el7.ppc64le #1 SMP Thu Jul 6 19:59:44 EDT 2017 ppc64le ppc64le ppc64le GNU/Linux

Here you can find ppc64le , whereas in your output it is x86_64. 64 denotes 64bit OS.

Thanks,

Aditya
