Failed to start Cloudera Director Server. Return value: 3 [FAILED]

After following the steps that are found in the below link the following error happens.

 

Command:

sudo service cloudera-director-server start

Error message:
Failed to start Cloudera Director Server. Return value: 3 [FAILED]

 

When I review the java version 

Command: echo $JAVA_HOME
/usr/java/jdk1.8.0_151

 

No errors took place during the install.

Which OS are you using? Also can you check the Director server log if it's present, it should be at /var/log/cloudera-director-server/application.log

Issue was resolved with a reinstall of JAVA and then using the command: /usr/sbin/alternatives --config java
