Ambari Forum

Quick Links – can't reach the page

  • #46242

    HI all,

    We just installed Ambari and our name and data nodes. Ambari is working great. I’m able to start and stop services and the dashboard is all green lights. We installed this on amazon EC2 using the following guide – and my problem now is that when I try to access the HDFS quick link to the Name Node UI, I reach a “Oops! Google Chrome could not connect to ec2-<IP ADDRESS>”. We have checked that ports 50000 through 50100 are open but still I can’t reach that site.

    Can someone point me in the right direction?

    Just realized I posted this in the wrong section on the forums. If a moderator can move this post into the “installation on linux” section, I would greatly appreciate it.

    How did you check the ports are open? Are they open between the machines on EC2, but how about from outside hosts?

    Just to confirm it’s not the security firewall settings (which might not be allowing outside hosts reach those ports), can you stop iptables on the NN host and confirm you can reach the host:ip from your browser?

    sudo /etc/init.d/iptables stop

    Hi Jeff,

    Okay, big time beginners mistake here. My company blocks the ports that it was trying to access. I went home and tried accessing the links and it was working just fine. I submitted a request to get these open from within my company.

    Hi Adam,

    Thanks for letting us know that you resolved your issue.

    Anyway, instead of changing the firewall rules to allow port 50070  to have the quick links use the port that I want it to use?

    John Johnson

    To be clear, what I meant to ask, is there anyway to specify the port number to be used when quick links are generated? (we have Ambari 1.7 with Knox acting as proxy in a HA enabled NameNode environment).

The forum ‘Ambari’ is closed to new topics and replies.
