Can't complete HA NameNode Wizard

  • #37111

    Hello. I’m running through the HA NameNode wizard in my 5 node cluster. I’ve gotten all the way to step 9 (the last step). The “Done” button is available but doesn’t do anything. If I leave reload or try to go back to the main Dashboard, I get redirected to step 9 again. Any way to break out of this? Everything says it completed successfully.

    I have encountered the same problem, who can solve it?


    I’ve discovered that I can get into the database and set the Wizard to step 0 which will let me close out the wizard. The dashboard reports that HA is not set up and the wizard loads every time so, this isn’t the fix but will help.

    I changed:




    in ambari.key_value_store in the DB.
