Hopsworks installation error on GCP

I tried to install hopsworks single node installation on personal GCP account.

Here is machine (VM) / os details on GCP


Machine type
e2-standard-16 (16 vCPUs, 64 GB memory)

I followed following URL to install on GCP


wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/logicalclocks/karamel-chef/master/hopsworks-installer.sh chmod +x hopsworks-installer.sh ./hopsworks-installer.sh

I choose single host installation and GCP. After an hour I get following error. I refreshed and tried couple of more time with new VMs but was not successful.

Error message:

When I look into hop_airflow log I see following error

Hi. The hopsworks-installer.sh is installing our nightly build on master. We had an issue with SELinux on the latest centos image, so if you download it again and retry, it should be fixed. hopsworks-installer.sh will be officially supported from version 1.3.

This isn’t in readthedocs yet, but there is a new more convenient way to install hopsworks on GCP. If you have google-tools installed, you can do the following:

git clone https://github.com/logicalclocks/karamel-chef.git
cd karamel-chef/cloud/gcp
. setup.sh
./install.sh cpu community

This will spin up a 32GB/8-core VM with hopsworks. You can edit the config.sh file in the same folder to change the image/region/zone.
To destroy your VM, run:
./delete.sh cpu

You can install a version with a GPU using
./install.sh cpu community
./delete.sh gpu
to delete it.

thanks. It worked on single host GCP
