Ambari Services not in safe mode!

  • #23401
    Santosh R

    Hi, I had to stop the ambari services & then restart them. So in the ambari web platform I stopped them all successfully (stopped them simultaneously when background processes where still running). But while restarting them i again clicked the “Start” button of different services without waiting for one service to start completely. And when all background processes where finished none of the services were started. They all display a Red Blinking signal in the services page. None of the “Start” buttons are enabled. Please help me to start the services back.
    Awaiting Your Reply soon ,

    Hi Santosh,

    Thanks for using Hortonworks Data Platform.

    The manner in which you started the services should not have caused a problem.

    A few things you can try here:

    One – refresh the page in your browser – sometimes the browser just doesn’t pick up that the status has changed.

    Two – look in the ambari-agent logs to see if there is a reason why the services did not start successfully. The logs are located at /var/log/ambari-agent/ambari-agent.log.

    Three – you can try using the following commands in order to clean up the service status

    Stop Services
    in a shell set the following variables to the correct values:
    PASSWORD – this should be the password you entered for the Ambari admin user – if you left it at the default it is ‘admin’
    HOST – the host name of your ambari-server machine (fully qualified)
    CLUSTER_NAME – the name you gave to this cluster when installing.

    curl –user admin:$PASSWORD -i -X PUT -d ‘{“ServiceInfo”: {“state” : “INSTALLED”}}’ http://$HOST:8080/api/v1/clusters/$CLUSTER_NAME/services/NAGIOS
