I am using CentOS-7-x86_64-DVD-1611.iso:

[arcsight@esm611 ~]$ cat /etc/redhat-release
CentOS Linux release 7.3.1611 (Core)


Once I tried to install (as per the guide) using web server and "compatability Libraries" and "Developmrnt Tools" but the installation failed

Another time, I tried using "minimal install" and "compatability Libraries" only and then "yum install -y bind-utils pciutils tzdata zip unzip", but failed again


Any idea how to get to a successful installation?

  • I was installing on a lab system just last week.

    I too saw the long list of failures about 20 minutes into the instalation.

    It turns out that the directory did not have the proper write permissions.

    Once I did that, the installation was successful.

  • Hi  brian.wolff@hpe 

    First of all, thanks for your response

    But what directory you provided write permission for to get a successful installation?

    Before stating the installation i changed ownership of /opt and /tmp to arcsight but in vain

    Also I tried the installation again and provided write permission for /opt folder but again failed

    [root@esm611 arcsight]# ls -ltr /
