Intermittent Issue with Oozie installation

  • #59456
    Deepak Subhramanian

    I am setting up a 3 node virtual machine using vagrant in my Mac OS with 16GB ram. For some reason Ambari manual installation fails at the Oozie step mentioning the python script timeout. When I click retry button in Ambari Console on the failed tasks it works fine.

    I also tried the same with blueprint installation and it failed at the oozie stage as it was not able to download one of the bigtop jars from the site. Any thoughts ?

    Error from the ambari-agent.log

    Fail: Execution of ‘/usr/bin/yum -d 0 -e 0 -y install oozie’ returned 1. Error Downloading Packages:
    bigtop-tomcat-6.0.37-1.el6.noarch: failure: bigtop-tomcat/bigtop-tomcat-6.0.37-1.el6.noarch.rpm from HDP-2.1: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try.

    Seems like you are performing your cluster install using the public repositories for HDP? Typically, the error you are seeing indicates the public repositories are unavailable or unreachable. How is your internet connection from the cluster machines to the public repositories?

    If your internet connectivity issues persist, you can always build local repositories for the HDP packages instead:

    Thanks Jeff. I will try with local repo.
