Installation of vertica 7.1.1 fails with error message

Post by sameera » Fri Aug 12, 2016 8:02 am

Hi All,

We are trying to install vertica 7.1.1 on single node through command line but installation fails with the below errors,


# /opt/vertica/sbin/install_vertica -s <hostname> -r /root/Desktop/OPSA /vertica/vertica-7.1.1-0.x86_64.RHEL5.rpm

Vertica Analytic Database 7.1.1-0 Installation Tool

usage:
# install or update:
install_vertica --hosts host1,host2,host3 --rpm vertica.rpm
install_vertica --hosts 192.168.1.101,192.168.1.101,192.168.1.102 \
--rpm vertica.rpm

# add or remove nodes
install_vertica --add-hosts host4 --rpm vertica.rpm
install_vertica --remove-hosts host4

# get the full detailed help
install_vertica --help
install_vertica: error: unrecognized arguments: /vertica/ vertica-7.0.1-0.x86_64.RHEL5.rpm
Installation FAILED with errors.

Installation stopped before any changes were made.

If we try to change the command and try executing then the below error appears,

# /opt/vertica/sbin/install_vertica -s <hostname> -r /root/Desktop/OPSA/vertica/vertica-7.1.1-0.x86_64.RHEL5.rpm

Vertica Analytic Database 7.1.1-0 Installation Tool
>> Validating options…
Invalid path for rpm file:/root/Desktop/OPSA /vertica/vertica-7.1.1-0.x86_64.RHEL5.rpm
Installation FAILED with errors.

Installation stopped before any changes were made.

Please help us how to fix this issue.

i have just changed the command as below, instead of giving the actual host name i have given localhost

# /opt/vertica/sbin/install_vertica -s localhost -r /root/Desktop/OPSA /vertica/vertica-7.1.1-0.x86_64.RHEL5.rpm

this got executed without any errors and i could see "install_vertica" in that directory.

But i am not sure whether the installation was successful. Let me know how to fix this

Do we need to uninstall and re-install everything from the scratch?
I mean do we need to uninstall " rpm -Uvh vertica-7.1.1-0.x86_64.RHEL5.rpm" package as well?
