Re: Client Configuration Deployment Error


Hello @Johnny_Bach ,


thank you for letting us know that you had issues deploying client configurations on CDP. I have researched this topic and there is a good chance you might have problems with the alternatives. For your convenience pasting here Ben's solution [1] to this problem:

Try this on your nodes:

/usr/sbin/alternatives --display hadoop-conf

If that command does not return valid alternatives, you may be missing the following file:


If you can find a host with the file, copy it from that host to the host or hosts where it is missing.


Please let us know if it resolved your issue.


Kind regards:
