HDP on Linux – Installation Forum

Where does the ambari installation look for umask info?

  • #54707
    Carl Butt

    I have umask explicitly set to 022 in root’s .profile, .bash_profile, and .bashrc. It is also 022 in /etc/profile, /etc/bashrc, and /etc/login.defs. For some reason, the installation process is thoroughly convinced that my umask is 63.

    This is on CentOS 6 with ambari 1.5.1.

    Following up on this issue, the strange umask error (two digits!?) was actually fixed when I changed the way I copy/pasted my ssh key into the ambari startup. Must have been an invalid character or something. How ambari got a umask error out of the situation, I don’t know.
