Atlas Metadata Server will not start

New Contributor

Am working through this tutorial and first time I started Atlas it worked fine, running on VMware on a Mac. After coming back to it a day or so later I am unable to restart the Atlas Metadata Server from Ambari. I have Kafka, Hbase, Ambari Infra and Ranger all running but the Atlas Metadata Server refuses to co-operate.

It restarts but then almost immediately drops.

Any suggestions on how to fix this would be most welcome.

Can you please check atlas application.log located in<ATLAS_HOME>/logs/ and attach it here ?

ok so i fixed this myself - there was insufficient memory allocated to the vm - I up'd this to 12GB from the recommended 8GB and it is working fine now.

Thanks for the reply though.
