3.6. Optional: Configure the Local Repositories

If your cluster does not have access to the Internet, or you are creating a large cluster and you want to conserve bandwidth, you need to provide access to the HDP installation packages using an alternative method. For more information, see Deploying HDP In Production Data Centers.


The installer pulls many packages from the base OS repositories. If you do not have a complete base OS available to all your machines at the time of installation, you may run into issues. For example, if you are using RHEL 6 your hosts must be able to access the “Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server 6 Optional (RPMs)” repository. If this repository is disabled, the installation is unable to access the rubygems package. If you encounter problems with base OS repositories being unavailable, please contact your system administrator to arrange for these additional repositories to be proxied or mirrored.
