Oh, I see I skipped a step with the 'add_config' section.  Does Ambari not pick sensible defaults
if the user doesn't provide this information?

Subject: weird error using the ambari API to kick a cluster

Thanks for the help on Friday.  I was able to get most of the way to using the Ambari API
to set up a test cluster, but I'm now stuck on a fairly cryptic problem again.

I'm running into an error on the Ambari agent side, but I'm confused as to the source of the
error.  I imagine I'm not passing in some required configuration, but the API made no complaints
about my lack of providing it.

My setup is a 3 VM vagrant/virtualbox setup on my local machine using the Ambari quick start
guide located here:

I wrote a POC script based on the instructions here:

Here's a gist with the error message I'm getting from the ambari agent and the script I'm

As far as I can tell, the error occurs after I call install_all_services()

It sounds like the Ambari agent is expecting a 'global' config section to exist, but it is
not requiring me to provide it, and it is not provided by the bootstrap process.

Any ideas?
