Cloudbreak downscale fails when no Datanodes in cluster (bug?)

Hello,

Probably a bug: I have a Storm cluster set up using Cloudbreak. The cluster includes only the minimum set of services needed to run Storm (Nimbus, Supervisors, Zookeeper + Ambari Metrics) - blueprint attached. One of the instance groups includes only the Storm supervisors, and I want this group to be able to scale. Scaling up works properly. Scaling down is impossible, an error is thrown. Looking at the logs, I can see that (probably) Cloudbreak is trying to find Datanodes to decommission - but since the cluster doesn't include any, an error is thrown:

Is there any way to bypass this issue without adding an HDFS node to the cluster?

I am using Cloudbreak 1.16.5storm-min-blueprint.txt

My first question is can you upgrade to 2.4? That is latest GA release and if you just now started testing Cloudbreak I suggest to use 2.4

@Leszek Leszczynski

It could be a bug. The reason is well explained in this article, however, in your case, data node services are not present as expected.

https://community.hortonworks.com/articles/12981/impact-of-hdfs-using-cloudbreak-scale-dwon.html

I'll escalate the question to Cloudbreak team.

Re: Cloudbreak downscale fails when no Datanodes in cluster (bug?)

@rdoktorics

Richard, Cloudbreak 1.16.5 is the version that is presented on hortonworks.com website, Software Download/ HDP section. However, documentation shows Cloudbreak 2.4 (see https://docs.hortonworks.com/). Is that right? Where should Leszek go to download Cloudbreak 2.4 for his HDP 2.6.4 installation requirement?

Re: Cloudbreak downscale fails when no Datanodes in cluster (bug?)

Updating the Cloudbreak installation fixed the issue.

@Leszek Leszczynski

This is a known bug with the version you use. Let's wait for Richard to advise.

Re: Cloudbreak downscale fails when no Datanodes in cluster (bug?)

Thank you for your answers.

@rdoktorics I am actually using Cloudbreak to manage two HDP clusters, and I was just checking the possibility of managing a Storm cluster with this tool. Is it possible to upgrade the current installation? I assume that the answer is "yes, follow the procedure from the webpage", but since it means moving between major versions there might be some hurdles.

Re: Cloudbreak downscale fails when no Datanodes in cluster (bug?)

@Leszek Leszczynski Yes, you can upgrade and your clusters will not be affected. The steps to upgrade are here:

Re: Cloudbreak downscale fails when no Datanodes in cluster (bug?)

@Leszek Leszczynski

Have you managed to update and resolve your original issue?

Re: Cloudbreak downscale fails when no Datanodes in cluster (bug?)

Yes, I have successfully upgraded my Cloudbreak installation and the problem is gone.
