1.3. SLES 11

On a server host that has Internet access, use a command line editor to perform the following steps:

  1. Log in to your host as root.

  2. Download the Ambari repository file to a directory on your installation host.

    wget -nv http://public-repo-1.hortonworks.com/ambari/suse11/2.x/updates/ -O /etc/zypp/repos.d/ambari.repo


    Do not modify the ambari.repo file name. This file is expected to be available on the Ambari Server host during Agent registration.

  3. Confirm the downloaded repository is configured by checking the repo list.

    zypper repos

    You should see the Ambari repositories in the list.

    Version values vary, depending on the installation.






    Ambari 2.x




    SUSE-Linux-Enterprise-Software-Development-Kit-11-SP1 11.1.1-1.57







  4. Install the Ambari bits. This also installs the default PostgreSQL Ambari database.

    zypper install ambari-server

  5. Enter y when prompted to to confirm transaction and dependency checks.

    A successful installation displays output similar to the following:

When deploying HDP on a cluster having limited or no Internet access, you should provide access to the bits using an alternative method.

For more information about setting up local repositories, see Using a Local Repository.

Ambari Server by default uses an embedded PostgreSQL database. When you install the Ambari Server, the PostgreSQL packages and dependencies must be available for install. These packages are typically available as part of your Operating System repositories. Please confirm you have the appropriate repositories available for the postgresql-server packages.
