Ambari metrics collector and monitor is not starting

New Contributor

Hi...

I have configured ambari agent with non root user hadoop. I am trying to start ambari metrics collector. but it keeps failing with the error below.

ExecutionFailed: Execution of '/usr/sbin/ambari-metrics-monitor --config /etc/ambari-metrics-monitor/conf start' returned 1. sudo: no tty present and no askpass program specified

Also I have updated the sudoers file with the below lines

# Ambari metrics commands
ams ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD:SETENV: /usr/sbin/ambari-metrics-monitor *, /usr/sbin/ambari-metrics-collector *
hadoop ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD:SETENV: /usr/sbin/ambari-metrics-monitor *, /usr/sbin/ambari-metrics-collector *

Still is does not work any idea which user ambari is using to start the services ?

AMS collector and Monitor will always as non root user "ams".

The error you are noticing because ambari agent (which seems to be running as non root user) does not have Sodoer permissions setup properly.

Please refer to the following doc and make sure that ambari agent is setup to run as non root user with the list of command mentioned in the below links:

1. https://docs.hortonworks.com/HDPDocuments/Ambari-2.6.2.2/bk_ambari-security/content/how_to_configure...

.
