2.  Setting Up the Ambari Repository

This process prepares the updated repository.

  1. Check to see if you have a conf.save directory for Ambari server and agents. If you do, move them to a back-up location:

    mv /etc/ambari-server/conf.save/ /etc/ambari-server/conf.save.bak 
    mv /etc/ambari-agent/conf.save/ /etc/ambari-agent/conf.save.bak 
  2. Get the new Ambari bits. Use wget to fetch the repository file and replace the old repo file with the new repo file on every host.

    [Important] Important

    Check your current directory before you download the new repo file to make sure that there are no previous versions of the file. If you do not, and a previous version exists, the new download is saved with a numeric extension such as ambari.repo.1. Make sure that the version you copy is the new version.

      If your cluster does not have access to the Internet, you need to set up a local repository with this data before you continue. See Configure the Local Repositories for more information.
