Using a Local Repository

If you install a MapR cluster from a local repository, you do not need an internet connection.

You can set up a local repository on each node to provide access to installation packages. With this method, nodes do not require internet connectivity. The package manager on each node installs from packages in the local repository. To set up a local repository, nodes need access to a running web server to download the packages.

Set up repositories by completing the steps for your RedHat/Oracle Linux/CentOS, SUSE, or Ubuntu distribution.

Platform-specific upgrade repositories are hosted at: http://package.mapr.com/releases/v<version>/<platform>/mapr-v<version>GA-upgrade.<rpm/deb>.tgz.
