Subject [jira] [Created] (AMBARI-2023) Packages that Ambari depends on should be sandboxed to prevent conflicts/breakage
Date Thu, 25 Apr 2013 00:35:13 GMT
Yusaku Sako created AMBARI-2023:
-----------------------------------

             Summary: Packages that Ambari depends on should be sandboxed to prevent conflicts/breakage
                 Key: AMBARI-2023
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AMBARI-2023
             Project: Ambari
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: agent, build, controller
    Affects Versions: 1.2.0
            Reporter: Yusaku Sako


Ambari depends on third-party libraries, often with specific versions.

As one specific example, Ambari currently depends on Nagios 1.4.9.
The user can inadvertently do "yum upgrade" of all packages, causing Nagios to be upgraded,
and breaking monitoring functionality of Ambari (as it relies on the specific version 1.4.9).
That's just one example, but it would be better if such dependencies could be sandboxed (just
like how puppet, facter, etc, are sandboxed) and not interfere with the user's package management
practices.
One way is to rename the package to something like ambari-[original-package-name]-version,
and install such packages under some Ambari-specific namespace.
