3.1.1. Check Your Prerequisites

Select a mirror server host with the following characteristics:

  • This server runs on either CentOS (v5.x, v6.x), RHEL (v5.x, v6.x), Oracle Linux(v5.x, v6.x), SLES 11, or Ubuntu 12, 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 lets all cluster nodes (the servers on which you want to install HDP) to access this server.
