The error says "Error: Test: validationg vertica rpm installation : ERROR 10: vertica rpm is installed. This is from the .ovf install downloaded from 6.1.2. I am unable to proceed in adding nodes to the cluster. Please assist.


  • Hi Chad - The management console is expecting that the system is 'clean' - any prior installation of the vertica rpm will result in this error.   If you attempting to upgrade a previous install, please follow the upgrade instructions in the documentation.
