Cloudera Manager Server - "Name or service not known"

Explorer

I am running out of things to try here to finalize the upgrade on the cloudera manager agents. I finally gave up trying to fix it and reinstalled the whole cloudera manager service, to no avail.

 

$ rpm -qa 'cloudera-*'

cloudera-manager-agent-5.1.1-1.cm511.p0.82.el6.x86_64

cloudera-manager-server-db-2-5.1.1-1.cm511.p0.82.el6.x86_64

cloudera-manager-repository-5.0-1.noarch #Does this alarm anyone? I uninstalled the repository and reinstalled hoping to get 5.1 version repo but it installed this one again. 

cloudera-manager-server-5.1.1-1.cm511.p0.82.el6.x86_64

cloudera-manager-daemons-5.1.1-1.cm511.p0.82.el6.x86_64

 

$ java -version

java version "1.7.0_51"

Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_51-b13)

Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 24.51-b03, mixed mode)

 

The error happens once I log back into the cloudera manager service to upgrade the cm agents, it fails pretty fast (in a couple of seconds):

Detecting Cloudera Manager Server...

BEGIN host -t PTR 10.1.1.191 
191.1.1.10.in-addr.arpa domain name pointer hadooop-test.in.wellcentive.com.

END (1) 
could not contact scm server at hadooop-test.in.wellcentive.com:7182, giving up 
waiting for rollback request 

 

I tried to replicate that part of the code on the terminal:

$ python -c 'import socket; import sys; s = socket.socket(socket.AF_INET); s.settimeout(5.0); s.connect(("hadoop-test.in.wellcentive.com", int(7182))); s.close();'

#the line above returns nothing, which indicates success. This is proven by teh code below where I try a fake name in for the hostname.

 

The following is a test to see if I could get it to give me an error.

$ python -c 'import socket; import sys; s = socket.socket(socket.AF_INET); s.settimeout(5.0); s.connect(("fakehadoop-test.in.wellcentive.com", int(7182))); s.close();'

Traceback (most recent call last):

  File "<string>", line 1, in <module>

  File "<string>", line 1, in connect

socket.gaierror: [Errno -2] Name or service not known

 

This is what I see in the logs:

 

Nothing is revealed in the cloudera-scm-server.log:

Re: Cloudera Manager Server - "Name or service not known"

The problem was that the following call: (Found in the error log of the installation UI, check out the original question)

 

python -c 'import socket; import sys; s = socket.socket(socket.AF_INET); s.settimeout(5.0); s.connect((sys.argv[1], int(sys.argv[2]))); s.close();' hadooop-test.in.wellcentive.com 7182 

 

was calling hadooop (threee o's) instead of the name of the server hadoop (two o's)

 

I checked with my systems team and there was a duplicate entry in the dns with the three o's. Fixed and that was teh problem.

arrrgh I am looking into why the error from CM has hadooop instead of hadoop... (blushing)

Re: Cloudera Manager Server - "Name or service not known"

1) Disable IPv6, firewalls, selinux, dns look up is proper

2) Ensure you have sufficient RAM, cores on the CM machines

3) Proper version of java for your CM

4) CM, DB are well connected ??

 

Please provide all the above details

 

Just increase java memory for CM

$ sudo vi /etc/default/cloudera-scm-server

When following our installation documentation, what step did you reach before discovering things were failing?  The requirements section of the installation guide is important to review, espectially the networking & security section.

 

http://docs.cloudera.com

 

You should not be laying down all the RPMs, and repo should not be installed manually.

 

Generally speaking you install 1 RPM package,

 

yum install cloudera-manager-server-db-2

 

It will install its dependancies

 

From there you start the embedded DB (service cloudera-scm-server-db start)

 

Once it completes self-configuration of the DB you should be able to start CM server

 

service cloudera-scm-server start

 

Once you see "Jetty Started" in the logging under /var/log/cloudera-scm-server/cloudera-scm-server.log you can connect to the server.

 

http://your.host.fqdn:7180

 

From there it will guide you through adding hosts, which will install agent and required JDK. Once that is complete you can start parcel deployment of CM.

 

The "Administration Guide" has the proper steps to "Uninstall", specifically what to do in a failed install attempt.  You need to go back through that and verify you cleaned up properly before attempting re-install.

This was an upgrade not a first time install, but I followed the upgrade instructions here: http://www.cloudera.com/content/cloudera-content/cloudera-docs/CM5/latest/Cloudera-Manager-Administr...

 

It was a problem with my dns set up.
