Subject Re: Problems with installation and deploying using Ambari
Date Thu, 04 Jul 2013 13:40:07 GMT
Hi Vivek,
Wanted to find out the version of Ambari you are using.

a) What sort of communication failures were you seeing? If there is
anything specific in logs that you can share?

b) UI jumping to installer after login means that the server says
installation is not complete. Did you notice any errors during install?
Also when it does go back to installer, which page of installer does it end
on, and are any previous values populated?

When you do manually go to http://xxx:5858/#/main/dashboard - does it stay
there, or jump back to installer after a few clicks?

c) Ambari server should be setup on a hostname (hostname -f) from where
agent nodes can talk back.
Was the ambari-server started on localhost initially perhaps?
When some agent hosts had server as localhost - did you install agent

d) Ganglia server component failed to install for some reason. The agent
logs on that node should contain exceptions of why it failed. Fixing that
issue should help.
