HDP on Windows – Installation Forum

HDP 2 MR Job Failed

  • #47320
    Ryan Tao


    I have installed HDP 2.0 for windows successfully. But I can’t submit any job on cluster.
    When I try to run smoketest, mapreduce job and pig job are failure.
    Below is the detailed error.
    INFO org.apache.hadoop.yarn.server.resourcemanager.rmapp.RMAppImpl: Application application_1390445362355_0002 failed 2 times due to AM Container for appattempt_1390445362355_0002_000002 exited with exitCode: 1 due to: Exception from container-launch:

    Any help will be appreciated.

    Hi Ryan,

    Can you please verify that you are using user hadoop or smoketestuser to submit the job? Please see details here:

    Hope this helps,

    Hi Seth,

    I have created a smoketestuser account, but still the same error.
    If hadoop can’t run smoketest, so does smoketestuser.
    Need I add the YARN or HDFS configurations after I installed HDP2?

    Thanks a lot
