Ambari won't following admin password reset

avatar
New Contributor

Recently installed sandbox on Docker with Mac OS X as the underlying OS. I'm following the tutorial "learning the ropes of the hortonworks sandbox".

Here's what I get once I followed the instructions for changing the admin password using the shell web client:

[root@sandbox-hdp ~]# ambari-admin-password-reset
Please set the password for admin:
Please retype the password for admin:
Passwords do not match. Please try again.

Please set the password for admin:
Please retype the password for admin:

The admin password has been set.

...what is the next logical troubleshooting step to get the ambari server to start?

If you are worrying about the following error message then it is not to be worried much as sometimes due to slow startup ambari might take more than the default 50 seconds time to be completely Up and running. So you can ignore the error if you are able to access the ambari. Try accessing ambari server URL. http://localhost:8080. with the new credentials that you have set

ERROR: Exiting with exit code 1.
REASON: Server not yet listening on http port 8080 after 50 seconds.

.

Some explanation about this error you can find tin the following thread: \https://community.hortonworks.com/questions/149848/change-the-port-for-ambari-server.html

So edit the "/etc/ambari-server/conf/ambari.properties" and increase the following property value to 120 or 150 seconds.

server.startup.web.timeout=120 

and then hopefully you should not see that error again.

This may have worked on a previous version, but I am running the sandbox on virtualbox, HDP 2.6.4 and I wasn't able to find a property 'server.startup.web.timeout' in the configuration file /etc/ambari-server/conf/ambari.properties to set to a higher value.
