We use oozie to run our workflows on HDP 1.3. We installed the platform on a small test cluster using ambari.
The problem that arises is when we submit the work flow job using oozie cli, the oozie launcher job’s task breaks with ClassNotFoundException. The class it cannot find is the SequenceFileOutputFormat from hadoop-core. I’m baffled about this because the classpath listing that oozie launcher task writes to stdout includes hadoop-core jar from HDP instalation and that jar exists and DOES have the class in question. I double checked the class name in work flow xml and it’s ok. I was running the same work flow successfully on by hand installed pseudo distributed cluster.
Does anyone know what could be the problem?
