Scalding job failure in CDH5.4


Hi All,


We have the scalding job (v 2.9.2), which was running properly in the CDH 4 cluster. Now, after upgrading to CDH 5.4 we're experiencing the job failures

Is someone familiar with this problem? We suspect that it's related to the jars collisions but moving to the shaded jar didn't resolve the problem


Any help will be highly appreciated

Thank you,

Re: Scalding job failure in CDH5.4

This seems like a job packaging or distributed-cache configuration issue. The scalding/cascading folks may be able to better comment on this, but perhaps the resolutions discussed on may help you?
