CDH5.5.1 failed to start history server

Hi:
I used to have CDH5.4.7.  I could start all hadoop yarn servers O.K. in pseudo distributed mode.  I just upgraded to 5.5 today.  I found that I couldn't start history server now.  The error is like the followings.   I checked 'netstat'.  Port 19888 is not binded to any process.  If I changed mapreduce.jobhistory.webapp.address in mapred-site.xml to 19088.   I would get the similar error with Port in use: 19088.  Please advise how I can resolve this issue or is this a bug.Thanks.

Re: CDH5.5.1 failed to start history server

Just a wild guess: is IPv6 disabled?

  • -Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true in the HS process arguments
  • or no IPv6 addresses on the interfaces

You could try to set this just to be sure (but I have this set to "0" and it is working fine anyway):

  •  sysctl net.ipv6.bindv6only = 1

I didn't make any changes. Somehow it is working now.

Re: CDH5.5.1 failed to start history server

I had the same issue. The solution was to start the history server first. This means before the other cdh services like hdfs and yarn are started.
