Ambari Setup - JAVA HOME Error

New Contributor

I have similar issue which was posted in Ambari Setup. I could see in some post about the 2 JDK with third option as Custom but in my case, i could see only JDK as single option. Can someone please help me to get rid of this issue?

Please edit "vi /etc/ambari-server/conf/ambari.properties"

java.home=/usr/<jdk>/jdk_version

After that restart ambari server.

Hi,

I have tried as per your suggestion but here what i got as a result. Still i have not made full ambari-server. I just installed the ambari-server and trying to create the setup for the GUI.

[root@localhost ~]# service ambari-server start Using python /usr/bin/python Starting ambari-server ERROR: Exiting with exit code -1. REASON: DB Name property not set in config file. - If this is a new setup, then run the "ambari-server setup" command to create the user - If this is an upgrade of an existing setup, run the "ambari-server upgrade" command.

Also, please find the properties file input where i have 2 JDK version.

java.home=/usr/lib/jvm/java-1.8.0-openjdk-1.8.0.171-8.b10.el7_5.ppc64le/jre/bin/java java.releases=jdk1.8,jdk1.7 java.releases.ppc64le= jce.download.supported=true jdk.download.supported=true jdk1.7.desc=Oracle JDK 1.7 + Java Cryptography Extension (JCE) Policy Files 7 jdk1.7.dest-file=jdk-7u67-linux-x64.tar.gz jdk1.7.home=/usr/jdk64/

Please suggest.

@Sabarigirivasan Kuttuva

Your java.home set inside the ambari.properties is incorrect. It is pointing to the "java" file instead of pointing to the directory where the JDK is installed

java.home=/usr/lib/jvm/java-1.8.0-openjdk-1.8.0.171-8.b10.el7_5.ppc64le/jre/bin/java

.

Can you please try this path:

java.home=/usr/lib/jvm/java-1.8.0-openjdk-1.8.0.171-8.b10.el7_5.ppc64le

.

Please check if your PATH contains the "bin" directory as following:

# ls -l /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.8.0-openjdk-1.8.0.171-8.b10.el7_5.ppc64le/bin/java

Java home is a directory up t; the directory where the "bin" is present.

Example:

# grep 'java.home' /etc/ambari-server/conf/ambari.properties
java.home=/usr/jdk64/jdk1.8.0_112
stack.java.home=/usr/jdk64/jdk1.8.0_112
