HDP on Linux – Installation Forum

It's failing on Confirm Hosts Screen

  • #49897

    I just installed HDP via Ambari on AWS. Everything went okay. I am on login prompt, trying to install the cluster now but it’s failing on confirm hosts screen. Here is the message —

    Host checks were skipped on 7 hosts that failed to register.

    Can someone help me troubleshoot? Please please.

    Hi Hasib,

    Did you setup your hosts file correctly on the Ambari server?
    You could install the ambari-agent on each host and configure the ambari-agent.ini to point to the ambari server.

    I added more memory and it worked.
