Install Vertica

Follow the instructions in the Vertica Installation Guide to install Vertica on the selected nodes, and apply your Vertica license using the install_vertica script.
Warning: For data-intensive workloads, MapR recommends disabling the Transparent Huge Pages (THP) feature in the Linux kernel. See Preparing each Node - Infrastructure for the disable command.

If THP is set to always, the Vertica installer will fail with the following message:

Transparent hugepages is set to 'always'. Must be 'never' or 'madvise'.

To bypass this setting, use the failure­threshold=NONE option in the Vertica installer.
