The R package installer internally calls the Yum (for RHEL) or Zypper (for SLES) package installer. Yum and Zypper require a repository that holds the OS packages to be installed. Before installing additional R packages or related OS executables, users must create this repository on the queen node of the Aster cluster.

Use these steps to create a repository and then install the packages.

  1. Log in to the queen node of the Aster cluster as root.
  2. Execute these commands:

    mkdir /var/opt/teradata/rrepo

    ncli apm administer R --setuprepo=rrepo,file:///var/opt/teradata/rrepo

  3. Copy the R packages or OS executables that need to be installed on the cluster into the repository.
