    Hi, what version of Ambari are you upgrading from?

    Did “yum upgrade ambari-server” in Step 4 run successfully?

    What is the output of “yum info ambari-server”?

    Hi Jeff,

    thank you for your response. As you pointed me out, the command “yum upgrade ambari-server” didn’t work properly.

    For those who are trying to migrate from ambari 1.6 to ambari 1.6.1, I also had another problem. I needed to reinstall ambari-log4j package, upgrading it, didn’t seem to work.

    Ivan, thanks for the follow-up information.

    For reference: what OS are you running? And what database are you using for Ambari Server (embedded postgres or one of the external options — postgres, mysql, oracle)?

    Hi Jeff,

    I’m using CentOS 6.5 in a AWS AMI and the embedded postgres db.

    What I’ve done is installing ambari-log4j package in my AWS AMI. Afterwards I launch a EC2 instance from that AMI and register it within the ambari server. Health checker warned me about ambari-log4j is already installed but eventually this host is added to my cluster with no problem.

    If I don’t install ambari-log4j, health checker works with no warning, but ambari server fails to download ambari-log4j package.
