Error during service installation

Contributor

First in order to test the database login connectivity during installation path A, the server name was missing, (i.e. blank:7432 instead of servername:7432) and needed to be added.  Once it oast the connection /. login id pwd verrification test, I clicked continue and received the following error:

retrying.. after deleting everything in /dfs by:

 

cd /dfs

rm -r -f *

 

on each host including the CDh manager server...

 

This actually worked!!! thanks Darren, Thanks DIO.. here are the steps when you need to reinstall from a botched delete of hive or zookeeper and the service add gives you a null pointer exception, (see my prior posts).

 

1)  Stop the cluster

2) delete the cluster

3) cd /dfs on each host

4) rm -r -f *

5) using the manager add the cluster

6) select the hosts tab and select alll hosts

7) choose all the defaults and click continue to start firstrun()

Glad you got it working!

Thanks Dio, the only minor issue on hiveserver2 was that it kept trying to restart because of the following error:

 

org.apache.hadoop.security.AccessControlException: Permission denied: user=hive, access=WRITE, inode="/tmp":hdfs:supergroup:drwxr-xr-x

 

Which clearly is a permission issue quickly solved with a chmod of the hadoop file system

 

[root@hadoopmngr tmp]# sudo -u hive hadoop fs -ls /tmp
Found 2 items
drwxr-xr-x   - hdfs   supergroup          0 2014-04-01 15:50 /tmp/.cloudera_health_monitoring_canary_files
drwxrwxrwt   - mapred hadoop              0 2014-03-31 22:20 /tmp/logs

 

[root@hadoopmngr tmp]# sudo -u hdfs hadoop fs -chmod -R 777 /
[root@hadoopmngr tmp]# sudo -u hive hadoop fs -ls /tmp
Found 2 items
drwxrwxrwx   - hdfs   supergroup          0 2014-04-01 15:55 /tmp/.cloudera_health_monitoring_canary_files
drwxrwxrwt   - mapred hadoop              0 2014-03-31 22:20 /tmp/logs

 

And t hen the hive server2 started just fine.

 

Thanks again for your help.

Setting your entire HDFS to 777 perms is not recommended. You just needed to make sure there was a 777 /tmp directory. CM normally creates this for you as part of HDFS setup, and there's a command in HDFS to create the /tmp dir if you need to run it manually.

 

It's not really convenient to undo this, so if you're fine with having effectively no hdfs permissions, then you can keep things as is. Otherwise you can manually re-restrict permissions to each folder appropriately. Anybody else hitting this issue should just create /tmp instead of the recursive chmod.

Contributor

You are correct.  I only noticed this after the command.  Should have restricted to the /tmp. 

 

I'm not concerned as this is a research environment with no restricted data.

 

Thanks dlo,

The solution worked for me, and my issue was due to not completing the Cloudera Manager install in the one window. I thought that I could restart from where I left off, but had nothing but issues.

I had tried to install Hive again and also Hue, but still had issues, so i suspect that there may have been issues prior to these, and there were dependencies.

 

The solution appears to be a good way to clean out and rebuild a cluster, for probably multiple type issues, and it does not really take that long to complete.
