I found that many commands will fail with the following permission denied error with Cloudera Manager 5.12

Seems this is a problem caused by a bug fix since 5.9

Did anyone encounter this in recent versions?

Hi

 

I resolved this issue by configuring proper java heap memory for name node

 

&

 

Configuring HA on namenode

Hi

 

I was using 5.12 express edition. It was not easy to startup with services after installation. The configurations needs to be changed and High Availability configurations, Journal nodes.

 

I have updated Java heap size for HDFS instances. Namenode, Secondary Name node and Journal nodes only retained

 

regards

I had the same problem until just now, on 5.12.x, and in my case it was caused by a problem with ssl, so if you use ssl, please read the following:

"this might be caused by having more than one oracle java installed, and even worse, any version of openjdk java. Namely, make sure you have added the ca you used for the ssl to the java keystore of the java version you are using (you can find that out in process list). Also, make sure that keytool you are using is belonging to this version of java - so it's best to have only one version installed, or (if that is unavoidable), use the full path to keytool. Hope it helps."
