Subject Re: Ambari 2.1.0 on HDP 2.3 problem deploying HDFS

Hi Ian,

Which version of Ambari are you using to install HDP-2.3?

Can you provide the output of 'ambari-server --hash' command? Also, do you see any Javascript

I have just attempted to reproduce the issue by adding HDFS service, but do not see the issue
(screenshot attached).

If you are not entering any /home value, and Ambari is not providing it by default, I am trying
to figure out where it is coming from.


What output do you see when you go to following URL in browser?


- Replace [ambari-server] with your Ambari server hostname

- Replace [cluster-name] with your cluster ID

- Make sure you are logged in

Hi Ian,

Did you set the value of any of the 'NameNode directories' to begin with /home or /homes?

We show that error when it does -

What is strange in your case is that it does not show the text area so that you correct it.

Can you detail the exact actions that resulted in this outcome?

Alternatively, do you see any Javascript errors in the Javascript console, and have you tried
it in other browsers?

Subject: Ambari 2.1.0 on HDP 2.3 problem deploying HDFS

I'm installing HDP 2.3 on a new cluster, and taking it slow.  I'm using Ambari to deploy,
and so far have only installed Zookeeper and Ambari-metrics.

When I go to install HDFS, I get to service customization, and it won't let me set a NameNode
directory.  I've attached a screenshot.  When I hover the mouse over the 'NameNode directories'
alert, the mouseover text says "Can't start with home(s)".  At this point there is no way
to proceed with the installation.
