Subject [jira] [Created] (AMBARI-10606) Ambari Agent needs to retry failed install/start operations

             Summary: Ambari Agent needs to retry failed install/start operations
                 Key: AMBARI-10606
             Project: Ambari
          Issue Type: Task
    Affects Versions: 2.0.0
            Reporter: Sumit Mohanty
            Assignee: Sumit Mohanty
             Fix For: 2.1.0

WIth the changes to cluster provisioning in Ambari 2.1, each host is provisioned independently
in it's own request. Additionally, users may make provisioning requests prior to hosts becoming
available. This means that components that connect to other components in the cluster may
start prior to the component that they are attempting to connect to. This connect behavior
is outside of Ambari proper and differs significantly between services/components.
An example of this is HISTORY_SERVER which attempts to connect to NAMENODE and if it fails
to connect, it retries a couple of times and fails with a timeout after a small number of
As a result, the ambari agent in 2.1 needs to retry failed operations (especially start operations).
The retry timeout should be a significant amount of time and could be configurable. This will
allow hosts to join the cluster at different times without component connection timeouts causing
the request to "fail".
Currently when a timeout occurs, it doesn't affect other component operations but does result
in a "FAILED" response to the user and the user will need to manually start the failed component.
