Installing HDP Search with Ambari

Ambari Management Packs are a new convenient way to integrate various services to the Ambari stack. As an example in this post we are using the Solr service mpack to install HDP on top of a newly installed cluster.

The HDP search mpack is available on the Hortonworks public repository for download. A mpack essentially is tar balls containing a mpack.json file specification and related binaries.Download the mpack from Hortonworks repo:

$ cd /tmp
$ wget http://public-repo-1.hortonworks.com/HDP-SOLR/hdp-solr-ambari-mp/solr-service-mpack-5.5.2.2.5.tar.gz

After downloading the tar file it can directly be used to install it with Ambari server:

$ ambari-server install-mpack --mpack=/tmp/solr-service-mpack-5.5.2.2.5.tar.gz
Using python  /usr/bin/python
Installing management pack
Ambari Server 'install-mpack' completed successfully.

Before you restart Ambari we still have to add the package repository containing Solr. Ambari keeps that information under /var/lib/ambari-server/resources/stacks/HDP/2.5/repos/repoinfo.xml and it should look like this:

<reposinfo>
  <latest>http://192.168.11.13:81/HDP/hdp_urlinfo.json</latest>
  <os family="redhat7">
    <repo>
      <baseurl>http://192.168.11.13:81/HDP/centos7/2.x/updates/2.5.0.0</baseurl>
      <repoid>HDP-2.5</repoid>
      <reponame>HDP</reponame>
    </repo>
    <repo>
      <baseurl>http://192.168.11.13:81/HDP-UTILS-1.1.0.21/repos/centos7</baseurl>
      <repoid>HDP-UTILS-1.1.0.21</repoid>
      <reponame>HDP-UTILS</reponame>
    </repo>
    <repo>
      <baseurl>http://public-repo-1.hortonworks.com/HDP-SOLR-2.5-100/repos/centos7/</baseurl>
      <repoid>HDP-SOLR-2.5-100</repoid>
      <reponame>HDP-SOLR</reponame>
    </repo>
  </os>
</reposinfo>

Finally you have to restart Ambari for it to make the changes available:

$ ambari-server restart
Using python  /usr/bin/python
Restarting ambari-server
Using python  /usr/bin/python
Stopping ambari-server
Ambari Server is not running
Using python  /usr/bin/python
Starting ambari-server
Ambari Server running with administrator privileges.
Organizing resource files at /var/lib/ambari-server/resources...
Ambari database consistency check started...
No errors were found.
Ambari database consistency check finished
Server PID at: /var/run/ambari-server/ambari-server.pid
Server out at: /var/log/ambari-server/ambari-server.out
Server log at: /var/log/ambari-server/ambari-server.log
Waiting for server start....................
Ambari Server 'start' completed successfully.

Now HDP can be installed like any other service already available:

Select Solr:

Make sure you have the correct settings like SolrCloud, index path in HDFS or not, and if you want the sample collection to be created.
