Cloudera 6 Heartbeat - SSLError: sslv3 alert bad certificate

Cloudera 6 Heartbeat - SSLError: sslv3 alert bad certificate

Explorer

I'm attempting to install Cloudera 6 as a single-node on Centos 7 using VMWare Workstation 12 for learning and POC purposes.

 

However, I'm running into heartbeat issues.  Initially I get an error saying...

 

[30/Sep/2018 21:55:05 +0000] 24667 MainThread agent ERROR Heartbeating to cloudera6.localdomain:7182 failed.
Traceback (most recent call last):

raise ConnectionClosedException("Reader read 0 bytes.")
ConnectionClosedException: Reader read 0 bytes.

 

The install program said...

 

If Use TLS Encryption for Agents is enabled in Cloudera Manager (Administration -> Settings -> Security), ensure that /etc/cloudera-scm-agent/config.ini has use_tls=1 on the host being added.

 

I updated the config.ini file, now I'm getting a slightly different error...

return m2.ssl_connect(self.ssl, self._timeout)
SSLError: sslv3 alert bad certificate

 

The message just repeats continuously.  The SSLError seems to be a new error compared to the original error.

 

I've tried this a few times, and figured I'd try to match my configuration to what I see in the QuickStart VMs.  My Hosts files is:

 

127.0.0.1 cloudera6.localdomain cloudera6 localhost localhost.localdomain
::1 localhost localhost.localdomain

 

The hostname file is :

cloudera6.localdomain

 

Any recommendations on what I should do next?

 

Thanks

W.D.

@Meister1867,

 

My first guess is that you accidentally enabled Agent Authentication which means that the Cloudera Manager Server requires certificate authentication but you have not configured the agent for that yet.

 

Check in Cloudera Manager's Administration --> Settings --> Security section to see if you have Use TLS Authentication of Agents to Server enabled.  If so:

 

- uncheck Use TLS Authentication of Agents to Server

- restart Cloudera Manager with "service cloudera-scm-server restart"

- verify in the Hosts --> All hosts section that the last heartbeat for your host happened less than 15 seconds ago.

 

If so, that was likely the cause.

 

If you wish to enable Agent Authentication to CM, then you can use the following section to guide you:

I made updates, but now I'm getting the following error messageErrorMessage.png

    raise ConnectionClosedException("Reader read 0 bytes.")
ConnectionClosedException: Reader read 0 bytes.

I should add, I also added a line to the hosts file so that there is a non-Local IP address.

 

Before I followed the instructions to update the TLS values, I was getting this error message.

@datasir,

 

We need to know what you have configured in Cloudera Manager with regard to agent communication (primarily agent encryption and authorization).

 

Also, check your Cloudera Manager log for messages at the same time as your agent error messages.

 

It would be a good idea to share the errors you are seeing so we can be sure we know what issue you are seeing.

 

Also, post your configuration for the agent having the problem.  This can be obtained with:

 

grep -v -e '^[[:space:]]*$' -e '^#' /etc/cloudera-scm-agent/config.ini

I'm having the same issue. This is my agent configuration:

This is my Cloudera Server config:

@JoaquinS Your CM agent config file does not have TLS enabled, but the CM server configuration has. 

I would suggest to disable the Use TLS Encryption for Agents, Use TLS Authentication of Agents to Server, Verify Agent Hostname Against Certificate settings and restart CM to proceed to make the installation work in a first step.

 

Once that is done, please follow the steps in this documentation chapter to enable TLS encryption for CM agent communication.
