3.1.1. Prerequisites

Select a mirror server host with the following characteristics:

  • This server runs on either CentOS (v5.x, v6.x) or RHEL (v5.x, v6.x) and has several GB of storage available.

  • This server and the cluster nodes are all running the same OS.


    To support repository mirroring for heterogeneous clusters requires a more complex procedure than the one documented here.

  • The firewall allows all cluster nodes (the servers on which you want to install HDP) to access this server.
