@Udhav From the output I see database is running on ambari server host , Can you check is mysql is  up and running

Re: Ambari server start always fails

@Udhav It appears your mysql is not running after a restart.  Try this:

 

service mariabdb start
chkconfig mariadb on

 

Also, I would refrain from using "localhost" or "127.0.0.1".  This opens doors for networking and permissions issues.   Please always use an FQDN, for example: c3701.ambari.apache.org that is mapped to public IP addresses on any given node via /etc/hosts.  That FQDN should also be the hostname for each node as well.
