ROOT CAUSE : Missing jar

WORK AROUND :

On the falcon server, download missing jar and save it under falcon lib location

wget http://search.maven.org/remotecontent?filepath=com/sleepycat/je/5.0.73/je-5.0.73.jar -O /usr/hdp/current/falcon-server/server/webapp/falcon/WEB-INF/lib/je-5.0.73.jar


chown falcon:hadoop /usr/hdp/current/falcon-server/server/webapp/falcon/WEB-INF/lib/je-5.0.73.jar

Restart Falcon server from Ambari. Hortonworks cannot ship this jar. It has to be manually downloaded.

Thanks I had same issue with HDP 2.6 upgrade. I was able to fix it after following the instructions.

thanks for the resolution. this resolved the falcon issue after upgrading to HDP-2.6.0.3 .

I just ran into the same issue in HDP 2.6.0 whose Ambari.repo content is:

#VERSION_NUMBER=2.5.0.3-7 [ambari-2.5.0.3] name=ambari Version - ambari-2.5.0.3 baseurl=http://public-repo-1.hortonworks.com/ambari/centos7/2.x/updates/2.5.0.3 gpgcheck=1 gpgkey=http://public-repo-1.hortonworks.com/ambari/centos7/2.x/updates/2.5.0.3/RPM-GPG-KEY/RPM-GPG-KEY-Jenkins enabled=1 priority=1

The work-around posted here fixed my issue.

Awesome. I faced this same problem in HDP 2.5, I was able to resolve it using the instructions mentioned in this post!

This works absolutely fine. Thanks for workaround.
