Confirm host failure in Ambari Setup

  • #47318

    I am setting up a four node cluster using Ambari. I am using the process of installation by creating a local repository on my master node. I am able to run ambari-server properly at port 6666. When I am at the third step on the Cluster Install Wizard where Confirm Hosts screen is there, then status of 3/4 nodes iscoming successful, while one node is failing.
    I found that ambari-agent is not able to start on this node. The log file (/var/log/ambari-agent/ambari-agent.log) shows this error: – Failed to start ping port listener of:[Errorno 98] Address already in use

    Can anyone help me in rectifying this?

    The issue has been resolved.
    I had to kill the processes that were running
    I used the following commands:
    ps -ef | grep ambari
    kill -9 <process_id>
