> There are two scenarios to cover here:
> # Ambari never conf-select'd a component (maybe because of a bug or because the component
didn't support it)
> # The conf pointers of a component are broken
> In either event, when distributing a new stack, the code detects this problem (as it
would on a first-time install) and tries to fix it:
> {code}
> /etc/component/conf (directory)
> /usr/hdp/current/component -> /usr/hdp/v1/component
> /usr/hdp/v1/component -> /etc/component/conf
> {code}
> The stack distribution thinks this is a first-time installed and tries to fix the symlinks.
We end up with:
> {code}
> /etc/component/conf -> /usr/hdp/current/component
> /usr/hdp/current/component -> /usr/hdp/v1/component
> /usr/hdp/v1/component -> /etc/component/conf
> /usr/hdp/v2/component -> /etc/component/v2/0
> {code}
> Because we're only conf-selecting v2, v1 never gets corrected since it's already installed.
Thus, we have a circular symlink.
> Most likely the proper fix will be:
> - Iterate over the entire known conf-select structure
> - Check to see the state /etc/component/conf - if it's bad, fix it to defaults
> Chances are we can do this directly in {{conf_select.convert_conf_directories_to_symlinks}}:
> {code}
> stack_name = Script.get_stack_name()
> for directory_struct in dirs:
> if not os.path.exists(directory_struct['conf_dir']):
> Logger.info("Skipping the conf-select tool on {0} since {1} does not exist.".format(
> package, directory_struct['conf_dir']))
> return
> {code}
