  1. Log into the machine that is to serve as the Ambari Server as root. You may login and sudo as su if this is what your environment requires. This machine is the main installation host.

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 bits using an alternative method. For more information, see Optional: Configure the Local Repositories section.

When you have the software, continue your installation based on your base platform.
