Configuring ambari with isilon

Expert Contributor

I am trying to add an isilon storage (using add host) to our HDP cluster. However, i encounter error "Registering with the server...Registration with the server failed." Has anyone come across this? I'm using HDP 2.6 with Ambari 2.5.3.


Are you following the process as described in the Isilon Installation guides? Also, validate the version of OneFS is compatible with the version of Ambari & HDP.

thanks @russ stevenson

From the logs, the issue was due to incompatibility. I see EMC's compatibility chart talks about the Ambari version, it must be that they mean the Hortonworks version.
