Subject Re: Problems with installation and deploying using Ambari
Date Thu, 04 Jul 2013 14:09:54 GMT
Hi Srimanth,

  Thanks for the response my replies below. I am using HDP-

a) It was a https call made to ambari server from agent;

INFO 2013-07-04 09:38:00,378 - SSL Connect being called.. 
connecting to the server
INFO 2013-07-04 09:38:00,563 - Unable to connect to: 

If i change the jdk to 1.6, it starts working.

b) When I manually acess the url, I can properly see the status, 
gangalia, do start/stop, config changes etc.
It doesnt jump back to the installer.

Was the ambari-server started on localhost initially perhaps?
     This could be. But after we corrected other machines, we did 
ambari-server reset.
     Next time it failed saying the same localhost, even though the conf 
was proper.
     Hence we removed rpm, but still did not help and finally deleted 
/etc/ambari-agent  and  /usr/lib/ambari*. Which helped.

(Everytime we were doing retry for that machine installation alone)

d) Sure will have a look at the agent logs next time.
