Subject Issues initializing HAWQ cluster
Date Tue, 17 May 2016 20:58:59 GMT
Hi all,

I have a HDP 2.4 single-node VM running on CentOS 6.7.  I recently built
and installed Apache HAWQ, but I'm not able to initialize the cluster.
When I first tried to run 'hawq init cluster', I received the following

hawq_init:hawqcluster-01:gpadmin-[INFO]:-Start hawq master failed

hawq_init:hawqcluster-01:gpadmin-[WARNING]:-pg_ctl: PID file
"/data/hawq/master/postmaster.pid" does not exist

hawq_init:hawqcluster-01:gpadmin-[ERROR]:-Master init failed, exit

I ran the command again a few days later and I got a different error:

hawq_init:hawqcluster-01:gpadmin-[INFO]:-Prepare to do 'hawq init'

hawq_init:hawqcluster-01:gpadmin-[INFO]:-You can find log in:


hawq_init:hawqcluster-01:gpadmin-[INFO]:-GPHOME is set to:


hawq_init:hawqcluster-01:gpadmin-[INFO]:-Init hawq with args: ['init',

hawq_init:hawqcluster-01:gpadmin-[INFO]:-No standby host configured, skip it

hawq_init:hawqcluster-01:gpadmin-[INFO]:-Check if hdfs path is available

hawq_init:hawqcluster-01:gpadmin-[INFO]:-1 segment hosts defined

default_hash_table_bucket_number as: 6

hawq_init:hawqcluster-01:gpadmin-[ERROR]:-sync hawq-site.xml failed.


I tried changing the value of default_hash_table_bucket_number in the
hawq-site.xml file but I keep getting the same error.  Any ideas on what I
might be missing?
