Ambari registration to host failing

  • #49744

    Hello, I am having some troubles installing via ambari server, it seems the installation is going well, but the servers won’t registrate correctly.
    Could it be the ntpd is not setup correctly ?

    I am installing Haddop 2.0 and the automated install on ambari.
    I followed everystep on install documentation.
    iptables/selinux is desactived on all machines.
    Hosts is configured.
    Passwordless works.
    Then whatis missing ?
    NTP seems synchronised so I didnt touch it


    I synchronized my NTP at last in the ntp.conf i put on the lines
    server evl240070
    server evl240071
    server evl240078

    which are my others servers.
    Then i did service ntpd restart.

    Still, can’t go throught the registration process of confirming host.

    Thanks for helping :)

    Are you using FQDN? For example, what is returned from “hostname -f” on the machines? Is that what you put into the host list during register the hosts?

    I’ve had this same issue as well – finally gave up on Ambari and went to manual installation of HDP – which is also very rocky. There are several missing things from the instructions. I’ve gotten most of the things working now, but still having permission and notification issues with oozie.


    Yes I used FQDN, solved this issue by changing evl240070 to in the step where we choose the hosts.
    my hostname had lines like this:

    83.X.231.X evl2400469

    with ‘X’ being regular numbers of course.

    Having now some trouble with HUE, but this topic is not for it.

    Have a good day :)

    I am not even using the FQDNs. I am using the IP addresses directly and they do not work. I used the FQDNs and they do not work as well. My /etc/hosts/ has:

    192.1XX.X.XX ambariserver
    192.1XX.X.XX machine1
    192.1XX.X.XX machine2

    Regardless of whether I put the IP address, machine1/2 or machine1/, it fails to register. I even tried the manually adding Ambari agents method and that fails too. If I do it the normal way, my error log is identical to yours. So, how exactly did you solve it?
