On RHEL/CentOS you might encounter an exception when trying to stop or restart Oozie :

resource_management.core.exceptions.Fail: Execution of 'cd /var/tmp/oozie && /usr/hdp/current/oozie-server/bin/oozie-stop.sh' returned 1. -bash: line 0: cd: /var/tmp/oozie: No such file or directory

This is likely because of a shell crontab /etc/cron.daily/tmpwatch which delete files/directories unmodified for 30d+

[root@local ~]# cat /etc/cron.daily/tmpwatch
#! /bin/sh
flags=-umc
/usr/sbin/tmpwatch "$flags" -x /tmp/.X11-unix -x /tmp/.XIM-unix \
        -x /tmp/.font-unix -x /tmp/.ICE-unix -x /tmp/.Test-unix \
        -X '/tmp/hsperfdata_*' 10d /tmp
/usr/sbin/tmpwatch "$flags" 30d /var/tmp
for d in /var/{cache/man,catman}/{cat?,X11R6/cat?,local/cat?}; do
    if [ -d "$d" ]; then
        /usr/sbin/tmpwatch "$flags" -f 30d "$d"
    fi
done

Just recreate the directory and you're good to go

[root@local ~]# mkdir /var/tmp/oozie
[root@local ~]# chown oozie:hadoop /var/tmp/oozie
[root@local ~]# chmod 755 /var/tmp/oozie
