Subject Re: Metron Installation on an Ambari-Managed Cluster?

I am looking for a fully scriptable solution, where I don’t have to go into
ambari, such as running the ansible playbook.
Before I would run build and playbook from docker.

(Refactor Ansible deployment to use Ambari). Of course the two scenarios
are different (your link is about installing Metron AFTER fully installing
HDP, while this link is about installing it all together), but they use
essentially the same steps.

The above linked article does have a lot of cruft based on working around
previously-existing bugs that have now been fixed, so if something looks
like it’s already been done, or doesn’t make sense, it may be okay to

The one thing both articles do that just isn’t necessary, is make you
install/run Docker and do the RPM build on the cluster. I routinely do the
Docker-based RPM build on my Mac, and move only the RPMs to the install
directory used by the Metron MPack for Ambari (/localrepo/) on the Metron

So if the Docker RPM build is the main impediment, try doing that.

a guide in the past, but it is out of date,
I don’t think it can possibly work with docker rpm build now.

Does anyone have any ideas what it would take to get this workflow working
