    yum install http://downloads.eucalyptus.cloud/software/euca2ools/3.4/rhel/7/x86_64/euca2ools-release-3.4-2.2.as.el7.noarch.rpm

    Review the dependencies and install package information.

    Enter Y when prompted to install the package.

  2. Enter the following command on each host machine that runs a Eucalyptus service or uses Euca2ools:
    yum clean expire-cache
  3. Enter the following command on each host machine that runs a Eucalyptus service or uses Euca2ools:
