HDP on Linux – Installation Forum

HMC: starting services failed

  • #10517

    Yesterday I successfully installed HMC that consists of two VMs created with VirtualBox v.4.2.0.
    Physical host: Win7, 16Gb RAM.
    VMs: CentOS release 6.2 (Final), 30Gb HDD, 4Gb RAM.
    I chose all HDP services except HBase.
    After the installation was done, I stopped all the services (via HMC) and powered off both VMs to make shapshots. After this I started both VMs, started HMC and tried to start the services but they failed. Then I ran the script from .
    I’ve uploaded the script result and logs to (file transfer was ok, but I saw nothing in the folder on your side, and I’m not sure that transfer was really ok).

    Please advise.

    Did you make sure to turn off iptables, or make sure that all ports used by hadoop are allowed through, on all nodes prior to trying to restart services?

    Yes, I executed
    /etc/init.d/iptables stop
    on each VMs even before starting hdp
