Enabling LZO with Ambari Blueprints

When using Ambari to provision a cluster using Ambari Blueprints, additional steps must be taken to configure Ambari to download and install LZO packages if the Blueprint configuration calls for LZO to be used.

The Ambari Server has a new silent setup parameter that can be used to enable Ambari to download and install LZO compression libraries:

ambari-server setup --enable-lzo-under-gpl-license

When this flag is passed, Ambari will download and install GPL licensed LZO compression libraries from the HDP-GPL repository. By default, HDP 2.6.4 and later include repository locations for the HDP-GPL repository. If you are installing the cluster and require a local repository, please refer to HDP 2.6 Repositories to obtain the repository.

For reference the GPL license for LZO can be obtained at the following location: https://www.gnu.org/licenses/old-licenses/gpl-2.0.en.html.
