Subject Re: Service component status method code
Date Mon, 16 Nov 2015 18:54:32 GMT
Hello Constantine,

What version of ambari are you using ?

Also, You can check in the ambari agent log, it will log an entry for
service check which you can run from command line and and see the output to
debug it further. (If you don't see it by default, set debug log to be
logged in the ambari-agent.ini)

It will be of the form (example below)
STATUS /var/lib/ambari-agent/data/status_command.json
/var/lib/ambari-agent/data/structured-out-status.json DEBUG

Once you get the command, go to command line on that node and execute the
command to verify the result.
If there is no exception raised in the status, by default it will mark the
status as running i believe, you just need to ensure that there is no error
/ exception occurring during the execution performed under status method.
