Subject [jira] [Created] (AMBARI-18786) HDP Upgrade fails when the cluster size is large
Date Thu, 03 Nov 2016 14:47:58 GMT
Dmitry Lysnichenko created AMBARI-18786:

             Summary: HDP Upgrade fails when the cluster size is large
                 Key: AMBARI-18786
             Project: Ambari
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Dmitry Lysnichenko
            Assignee: Dmitry Lysnichenko
         Attachments: AMBARI-18786.patch

Starting from Ambari 2.4, when the cluster is large, HDP upgrade fails during namenode restart.

This is because, restart command waits for namenode to come out of safemode and if the cluster
size is large, namenode takes more time to leave safemode but Ambari marks this action as
failure as the namenode didn't leave safemode within the configured timeout in Ambari scripts.

raise Fail(format("The NameNode {namenode_id} is not listed as Active or Standby, waiting..."))
resource_management.core.exceptions.Fail: The NameNode nn1 is not listed as Active or Standby,

To resolve this, we increased the timeout for ambari

1. Increased the timeout in /var/lib/ambari-server/resources/common-services/HDFS/
from this;
@retry(times=5, sleep_time=5, backoff_factor=2, err_class=Fail)
to this;
@retry(times=25, sleep_time=25, backoff_factor=2, err_class=Fail)

2. Restart Ambari server

After this upgrade went through fine.

I think its better to increase the timeout permanently so that we don't have to deal with
this issue again.
