Installation is consistently failing with yellow dashes. The first error in ambari-server.log is
15:00:49,926 ERROR ServiceComponentHostImpl:721 - Can't handle ServiceComponentHostEvent event at current state, serviceComponentName=SQOOP, hostName=msh-hdpslave101, currentState=INSTALLED, eventType=HOST_SVCCOMP
15:00:49,927 WARN HeartBeatHandler:233 - State machine exception
org.apache.ambari.server.state.fsm.InvalidStateTransitionException: Invalid event: HOST_SVCCOMP_OP_IN_PROGRESS at INSTALLED
There are no errors in ambari-agent.log on the afore mentioned host msh-hdpslave101.
Registration is successful and several components successfully install before this error appears. After this point, all components on all hosts fail to install with yellow dashes. Attempting a retry does not allow installation to proceed any farther.
I am following a combination of the documentation http://docs.hortonworks.com/HDPDocuments/HDP1/HDP-1.3.0/bk_using_Ambari_book/content/ambari-chap1-1.html and http://hortonworks.com/kb/ambari-on-ec2/ . All firewalling is disabled. This particular disk image (based on rhel6) has all of the prereqs configured and was previously used to successfully spinup a cluster. This problem has been encountered twice, each with fresh hosts.
I can post any additional logs as well as teardown/rebuild the cluster to assist in diagnosis. Thanks!
