Contributor

HDP 2.3.x cluster

ranger-admin directory not present, while installing ranger 0.5 by using the command "yum install ranger-admin"

ranger0.4 –

Command - sudo yum install ranger-admin

The ranger-admin directory is getting created as below:

[ec2-user@ip- ~]$ cd /usr/hdp/current/ranger-admin/

[ec2-user@ip- ranger-admin]$ ls -lt

total 96

drwxr-xr-x. 2 root root 4096 Mar 29 06:25 unixauth-config

...... many more files

Ranger0.5 –

Command - sudo yum install ranger-admin

The ranger directory was not created. Instead saw a symbolic link.

cd /usr/hdp/current

[ec2-user@da current]$ ls -lt ranger*

lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 34 Mar 29 05:12 ranger-admin -> /usr/hdp/2.3.4.0-3485/ranger-admin

lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 32 Mar 29 05:12 ranger-kms -> /usr/hdp/2.3.4.0-3485/ranger-kms

lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 37 Mar 29 05:12 ranger-usersync -> /usr/hdp/2.3.4.0-3485/ranger-usersync

If we list the link /usr/hdp/2.3.4.0-3485/, ranger-admin directory is not found

[ec2-user@da current]$ ls -lt /usr/hdp/2.3.4.0-3485/

Hi @Mohana Murali Gurunathan - you really should use Ambari, as it will make your life significantly easier when managing your Ranger installation.

If you choose to continue with the non-Ambari installation, please follow our documentation in full: here

As you can see, you have to do

yum install ranger_<version>

and usersync, kms and the plugins are all separate components which need to be installed.

If your cluster is Ambari managed then use Ambari to install Ranger

Rahul, the cluster is managed by Ambari. Infact, the cluster is created using Ambari blueprints. But using Ambari blueprint, we could not install Ranger. - https://bugs.launchpad.net/sahara/+bug/1496527

we would like to automate the installation of Ranger. So, we tried yum-install ranger-admin (for a HDP 2.3 cluster) and we were not able to taste success that we had with ranger 0.4 (for a HDP 2.2 cluster).
