I have checked into /var/log/ambari-server/ambari-server.out file, it contains

it contains

Re: Ambari server start giving Error java process died with exitcode 255

Expert Contributor

Thanks for the suggestion jss.

But it could'nt solved the issue completely.

I have moved those files into temp directory and again tried to start the server but, now it given another error as

ERROR: Exiting with exit code -1. REASON: Ambari Server java process died with exitcode 255. Check /var/log/ambari-server/ambari-server.out for more information.

when i checked into the logs, there i have found that the current version db is not comapatable with the server.

then i have tried these steps

wget -O /etc/yum.repos.d/ambari.repo http://public-repo-1.hortonworks.com/ambari/centos6/2.x/updates/2.2.1.0/ambari.repo

yum install ambari-server -y

ambari-server setup -y

wget -O /etc/yum.repos.d/ambari.repo http://public-repo-1.hortonworks.com/ambari/centos6/2.x/updates/2.2.1.1/ambari.repo

yum upgrade ambari-server -y

ambari-server upgrade

ambari-server start

when i run these commands after that ambari server did started but here is the amazing this has happened.

actually, i removed the ambari completely and trying to reinstall it.

when i completed all the above steps, and when i entered into the ambari ui, it is again pointing to the same host which i have removed previously. I was just shocked by seeing that with heartbeat lost.

then i realised that ambari agent is not at installed,

then i installed ambari agent and started it .

yum -y install ambari-agent

ambari-agent start

then,when i tried to start the services it didnt worked.

i checked in command prompt that, is these all serivecs still exist or not ?, by entering zookeeper . but that command is not found, because service is not installed in my host.

Then i started to remove the services from the host which is present in a dead mode,using these commands.

curl -u admin:admin -H “X-Requested-By: Ambari” -X DELETE http://localhost:8080/api/v1/clusters/hostname/services/servicename

but it didnt worked, I got a error msg as

message" : "CSRF protection is turned on. X-Requested-By HTTP header is required."

then i have edited the ambari-server.properties file and added these lines into that

vi /etc/ambari-server/conf/ambari.properties

api.csrfPrevention.enabled=false

ambari-server restart

then again i have retried it, at this time it did worked.

But when i tried to remove hive, it didnt,because mysql is running in my machine.

when i tried this command it did worked.

curl -u admin:admin -X DELETE -H 'X-Requested-By:admin' http://localhost:8080/api/v1/clusters/mycluster/hosts/host/host_components/MYSQL_SERVER

then, when i tried to add the services starting with zookeeper,again,

it given me error like

"resource_management.core.exceptions.Fail: Applying Directory['/usr/hdp/current/zookeeper-client/conf'] failed, looped symbolic links found while resolving /usr/hdp/current/zookeeper-client/con

Then i have checked the directories, i got to know that these links were pointing back to the same directories.

So, i have tried these commands to solve this issue.

rm /usr/hdp/current/zookeeper-client/conf
ln -s /etc/zookeeper/2.3.2.0-2950/0 /usr/hdp/current/zookeeper-client/conf

And it did worked.

at last i have successfully reinstalled the ambari as well as hadoop in my machine.

Thank you.

Re: Ambari server start giving Error java process died with exitcode 255

@Mohan V

Regarding error:

Caused by: org.apache.ambari.server.AmbariException: Stack Definition Service at '/var/lib/ambari-server/resources/common-services/HAWQ/2.0.0/metainfo.xml' doesn't contain a metainfo.xml 

Do you see "HAWQ" and "PXF" directories present inside the "/var/lib/ambari-server/resources/common-services"

If yes then you should move them to some "/tmp" directory and then try again. Then restart ambari server.

I have seen this kind of error in Old ambari servers. Can you please let us know about your ambari version.
