Install the Hue Packages

Hue server installation assumes the installation of the following sets of packages: hue, hue-common, hue-server, hue-beeswax, hue-oozie, hue-pig, and .

By default, the hue meta-package installs the package and all Hue applications as its dependencies.

Follow these steps to install the Hue packages:

  1. Stop all of the services in your cluster.

    For more information, see Stopping HDP Services in the HDP Reference Guide.

  2. Choose a Hue Server host machine in your cluster on which to deploy your Hue server.

    • You can deploy Hue on any host in your cluster.

    • If your corporate firewall policies allow, you can also use a remote host machine as your Hue server.

    • For evaluation or small cluster sizes, use the master install machine for HDP as your Hue server.

  3. Configure the firewall to ensure that all ports are open.

    • Verify that the host machines within your cluster can connect to each other over TCP.

    • The machines outside your cluster must be able to open TCP port 8000 on the Hue Server (or the configured Hue web HTTP port) to interact with the system.

  4. Install Hue.

  • If you are running CentOS 6, RHEL 6, or Oracle Linux 6, run this command on all Hue Server host machines:

    yum install hue
  • If you are running SLES 11,  SP3/SP4, or SLES 12 SP 1, run this command on all Hue server host machines:

    zypper install hue
