Subject Re: Installing on 300+ nodes with Ambari 1.7
Date Thu, 30 Jul 2015 22:55:44 GMT
Its mostly yum repo getting overloaded as you noticed. Retry should help
since yum does not try to reinstall the packages that it already installed.
Since repo is a webserver, you can setup a load-balanced webserver serving
yum packages but a retry would be much simpler.
