This has been tested on Ambari 2.6.2.0 and DLM 1.1.2.0

If there is broken symlink or unwanted directory under /var/lib/ambari-server/resources on Ambari Server, you get below error while installing mpack(management pack) for Beacon service.

Please follow below steps to fix this:

1. Make sure that there is no backup directory under /var/lib/ambari-server/resources like common-services.backup or stacks.old etc. If exists, please move it some other location.

.

2. Delete or move below directories to other location

/var/lib/ambari-server/resources/common-services/BEACON 
/var/lib/ambari-server/resources/mpacks 

.

3. Check if there is any broken symlink for BEACON under stacks directory. If exists, unlink it.
unlink /var/lib/ambari-server/resources/stacks/HDP/2.6/services/BEACON

.

4 Reinstall mpack using command mentioned in the Hortonworks docs.

e.g.

ambari-server install-mpack --mpack /root/beacon-ambari-mpack-1.1.2.0-37.tar.gz --verbose

.

Please comment if you have any feedback/questions/suggestions. Happy Hadooping!! :)
