Ambari Forum

ambari agent issue

    What version of Ambari are you running?

    Can you confirm the following ports are listening on the ambari server?

    netstat -anp| grep 8441
    netstat -anp| grep 8440

    Also, that those ports are reachable from the ambari agent host? Perhaps on restart, your iptables started and is blocking ports?


    i am using ambari 1.4.4 package which bulids rpms using maven and the version it shows is 1.3.0
    [root@localhost ~]# rpm -qa |grep ambari
    firewall is disabled.
    yes netstat confirms port are listening
    tcp 0 0 :::8441 :::* LISTEN 1880/java
    tcp 0 0 :::8440 :::* LISTEN 1880/java

    Hi Patel,

    Can you please check to make sure that IP in URL string you see in logs is reachable over IPv4? Looks like Ambari server ports are open on IPv6 network. Can you please verify? You can probably fully disable IPv6 as Hadoop does not support this yet.

    Please let us know if this is helpful.



    Was able to resolve the issue by upgarding openssl version from 1.0.1e to 1.0.1g

    Thanks for information, I will try that upgrade and see if that resolves my issue.
