You should never replace the system Python on RHEL/CentOS.

If you have applications that require a different versions then install them separately (in
a VirtualEnv, /usr/local, /opt or many other methods).

Subject: Re: ambari python version change

Thanks Gonzola. I was exploring to see if there is any easy away from having multiple versions
of python.

The issue I see there is not the Python version Ambari runs in (which should work) but the
fact that Ambari runs and installs it's packages on the system Python version.

I think upgrading RHEL 6 default Python to 2.7 is a big risk because core system services
where developed and tested on 2.6
As far as I now, there is not an official way of running Ambari on an non system default python

Therefore, my advice if possible is that you upgrade RHEL to 7.
I wonder why do you care which version of Python is Ambari using.
