Ambari Custom Stack : Add Service hangs at "Assign Slaves and Clients Step"


Ambari Custom Stack : Add Service hangs at "Assign Slaves and Clients Step"

New Contributor


I am working on developing a custom stack which extends HDP 2.6 stack and replaces HDFS with HCFS Service.

Followed the following tutorials, (ECS Stack) to develop this stack:



I can successfully install all the services using the Launch Install Wizard initially after installing the ambari server.

But when I try to add a new service in this installed cluster through Add Service UI, the Installation hangs at Assign Slaves and Clients Page, it shows white screen without any hosts to select and that's why I cannot proceed with the installation.

I checked the ambari server logs, it shows errors related to stack advisor script i.e. it cannot find

So I tried to add script extending HDP 2.6 stack-advisor script but still, the same problem arises in the UI.


This is the ambari-server.log snippet
