    Hi,

    I followed the instructions here:
    http://docs.hortonworks.com/HDPDocuments/HDP1/HDP-1.3.2/bk_using_Ambari_book/content/ambari-chap1.html

    Everything seemed to work ok.

    Eventually I saw this in my browser:

    Puppet has been killed due to timeout

    stdout:

    warning: Scope(Hdp::Configfile[/etc/hbase/conf/hbase-env.sh]): Could not look up qualified variable ‘::hdp-hadoop::params::conf_dir'; class ::hdp-hadoop::params has not been evaluated

    I would welcome any clues on how to get past this problem.

    I’m running this install in a set of 3 virtualboxes.

    I have them backed up so it would be easy for me to restore the v-boxes and then restart ambari-server .

    Perhaps some undocumented step needs to be done before I start the ambari-server?

    Hi Dan,

    What is the output of hostname -f on all the systems?
    Does each system have the other nodes in it’s own hosts file?

    Can you provide any more output on the log file here – as only the wanring is not very helpful, preferably a few lines above and below should help. You should find this in /var/log

    Thanks

    Dave

    It looks like the text-area elements in this forum are broken. I pasted in stuff that Dave asked for and most of it evaporated.

    Hi Dan,

    The forum doesn’t like it when you insert greater than or less than signs. So it is better to paste it all in plain text with —- as breakers

    Thanks
