HDP on Linux – Installation Forum

Adding A Node to a Single Node Cluster

  • #9946

    I have set up HMC as a single node cluster first.
    I am now trying to add a second node to the cluster…
    I have gone through the steps of creating password-less ssh on the slave and verified from the master that it works.
    When I try to “add node” on HMC, it gets stuck at “Node Discovery and Preparation”.. on the first step — Finalizing bootstrapped node..

    Help ?

    Your second nodes (the one you try to add) is not registered in cluster configuration.
    Most likely this is because of incorrect IP addresses usage:
    you use 127.0.x.x which is internal network and should not be used for anything else.
    Please, change IP address for you nodes to something else (192.168.0.x is a very good candidate for this) and then run node addition again.
    Make sure you have passwordless connectivity working and all prerequisites met.
